    I know there is a way to force the Wii into 50Hz mode, by holding down+A on startup or something. But now that I semi-bricked my PAL Wii (WiiKey), I'm stuck in 50Hz. Is there a trick like the 50Hz, to turn it into 60Hz? Maybe up+A? Anyone experienced?

    Also, is it possible to go into maintenance-mode with a semi-bricked Wii?

    EDIT: Just read somewhere, that there's supposed to be a GBAtemp-post about fixing a semi-bricked Wii due to going into Maintenance Mode.. Can't find it anywhere though.

    Not really the same. But, are you sure your TV supports 60Hz? You can play in 50Hz right?

    No, maintenance mode does not fix anything, at least not without other button combinations too.
    Wait for a PAL game that has a new update (assuming you had 3.1E, you need to wait for 3.2E, otherwise you're in luck, just find a recent game with 3.1E on it, I think SMG has it)

    I have a samsung widescreen HD-ready tv, a model from 2007 (I think).
    And when my wii is in 60 HZ mode i doesn't display al that well, but in 50 Hz it does.
    So conclusion it works beter in 50 hz

    maby its the same for yours

    Well, I was told, when I played SMG I'm safe to play SSBB(J) SL. Apparently that ain't so. I should've updated my Wii thru WiFi first..

    I don't think your theory goes up: You always have 3.1 when you are playing SSBB. So I always have to wait for a 3.2E update...

    You do know you have to wait a couple seconds before the game starts in 60Hz, right? Also: you turned Deflicker off?

    Super Mario Galaxy already has the latest update included, so if you tried to update through WiFi, it'd tell you your Wii is already up-to-date...

    I semi-bricked my brother's Wii with the 15% trick, even though his Wii was updated to 3.1E...I guess it depends on when you pull the plug [​IMG]

    Even though your GBAtemp-reputation smashes mine, I don't think you're correct on this one. SMG really doesn't have the latest update included. Or is this all just randomness? Note: I let the SSBB(J) update run to 100%.

    You only have to turn off the deflicker in 50HZ
    Then go into 60HZ, the warning screen, and the loading screen won't appear, but after few second (30-45), you'll have the intro, and ALL your game in 60 HZ
