I'll try to make this topic as organized as possible. My Wii specifcations: My Wii is updated to 4.0 and it is not a LU64 model. My Wii was a virgin Wii (no mods) until last night (pun somewhat intended..) It had no problems at all before this. What I did: Last night, I softmodded my Wii to install the Homebrew Channel as well as Wiigator's backuploader gamma v3. I used the Ultimate Wii Soft-mod Guide and it worked perfectly. After getting the homebrew channel, I downloaded the Homebrew browser and downloaded a few games off of it. I have not use the backup launcher yet, but I did use Waninkoko's wad manager to install a couple Virtual Console games onto my Wii. Those worked fine. What Happened: Today, I was browing the Homebrew Browser for some games to download, when my screen suddenly changed to this. I had encountered this screen 2 times before (a simple restart worked), but this time, when I powered off and on, I got a blank, black screen where the "Health and Safety" screen should be. Nothing happens after this point. The screen stays black. The power light is green, but to turn it off requires about 5 seconds of holding the button down. The Wii remotes will not register to the wii, even after pushing the sync buttons. I plugged every cable into my friend's Wii and his works just fine, so my Wii is surely the problem here, not the cables or the TV. Also the disc starts spinning and the blue light turns on, but there is no audio or video still. I unplugged it for 10 minutes and tried again, but I was met with the same problem. I do not have preloader installed (Im not sure if it would even work in this situation). What do I do?: So what should I do in this situation? Has anyone else had this problem? Is my Wii bricked? If I take my Wii to NOA (I believe it is still under warranty), will they fix it? Or will they refuse because it is soft-modded? Would I get in trouble with NOA in that situation? Please respond back. I am not exactly a rich man. Buying a console is no small purchase for me, so I desperately need to fix this Wii.
