    Hi, my little Sister was messing around with my Wii. She die something like pressing + and - while the Wii is booting and now it only shows a Black screen with the Version number And Region. (I am on 3.2 in Europe) I heard this was something like maintenance mode but it wont go back to the Wii menu. It Just freezes with those numbers in my screen. Please help

    That's "recovery mode", and is activated by holding down all four D-pad directions on the GameCube controller plugged into the fourth GameCube controller port.

    Do you have anything plugged in to the GameCube ports?

    thread is old but anyway. Isn't there a priiloader force recovery mode hack? if its on boot into priiloader and turn it off. I assume that's your issue

    Maintenance mode still boots to the system menu. Recovery mode only boots to the black version screen. The former can be activated with the Wii remote while the latter requires a GC memory card dongle or GC controller in port 4. Both should be exitable by just turning the Wii off. If that's not doing it then it's possible something got screwed up on your console. As Thomas83Lin said if you had Priiloader installed try seeing if you can get into that by holding down reset while you turn the console on. If it works you can try using its menu to get to the system menu.

    Are you sure nobody tried to install anything to the NAND or patch anything? Your post history shows messing around with Pimp My Wii, DOP-Mii, ad RiiConnect, all of which can lead to a brick if you do something wrong.
