    you screwed up. Time for a new wii or find what you blew inside and replace it.
    Most likely a fuse in there somewhere.

    Woooooow. That really sucks.

    I agree with sifun. Maybe just try and find what it is you might've hit and fix it. If not, you'll have to buy a new Wii. I don't think you'd be able to send this into Nintendo.

    Lucky you!

    This serves as a reminder that poking electronics and their components with conductive and/or sharp objects is a bad idea.
