    Today we played some games on the Wii, and turned it off when it was in USB Loader GX. Shortly after we wanted to turn it back on again but it didn't work. The light in the power button turns green and the DVD drive makes the usual sound when it is turned on, but that is all that happens. The Wiimotes doesn't sync and the tv doesn't react at all ie it don't get a signal.

    Here is what I have installed on the Wii:
    System Menu 4.1e
    Trucha patched IOS60
    D2Pro modchip (6-wires, Actel v2.5, SPI v1.7)
    Priiloader 0.4 with the following hacks enabled ([Replace Health Screen with Backmenu], [Block Disc Updates], [Block Online Updates], [No System Menu Background Music], [Recovery Mode press RIGHT on gc pad 4P], Startup and return is set to System Menu)
    BootMii as IOS (I have an old backup)
    cIOS 249 r19 (base 38), cIOS 250 r19 (base 57)
    cIOS 202 (old version), cIOS 222 r4 (base 37 + 38), cIOS 223 r4 (base 38), cIOS 224 r5 (base 57)
    HBC 1.06

    Here is what I have tried:
    Pressed Reset after power on to launch Priiloader
    Insert BootMii autoboot disc found here on GBAtemp and power cycled Wii
    Boot from the D2Pro 1.7 utility disc
    Unplugged power for some time
    Connected the Wii to another power supply, sensor bar and video cable
    Sync Wiimote

    Nothing worked. I updated from Preloader 0.30r4 to Priiloader 0.4 a couple of days ago but that have worked fine until today, so I don't think that has anything to do with it. I haven't done any other 'big stuff' on the Wii lately (just been testing a USB Loader GX forwarder channel yesterday but that has been uninstalled again), so I don't think my problem is because of homebrew, I suspect that there is some kind of hardware failure, but I am not sure.

    If anyone has any idea what the problem is and how to solve it I would be very gratefull. Thank you.

    So what happened when you booted the Bootmii disc?

    only hardware thing that I can think of is the bluetooth module. If that goes bad then you wont get the SM, but I'm not sure if it will prevent priiloader from showing up. Try turning on your wii with the wiimote, if it works then your bluetooth module is fine and your brick is from another reason.

    Thank you both for your answers.

    I can turn on the Wii with my Wiimotes but after that they don't sync (no light in any of the 4 indicators on the Wiimotes.

    Try turning it on without the sd card in.
    Might not help just trying to eliminate things

    If you did nothing except exit GX before the black screen issue and assuming Priiloader doesn't work when you press AND hold reset after start up (you just mentioned pressing) then the only thing I could suggest is somehow your D2Pro has fouled up something? Especially now that the bluetooth module has been ruled out. I assume the TV itself is fine lol.

    With a NAND backup, otherwise, you're going to be in BIG trouble.

    Fuk.

    BootMii as IOS doesn't provide any brick protection.

    You have three options,

    1. Send it in to Nintendo, and hope for the best (3rd party fixes don't work).
    2. Buy a new Wii.
    3. Buy another system, and completely forget about the Wii.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    Or he could figure out how to use an Infectus and program in his NAND Backup.

    Or that.

    Personally, I don't think that opinion is advisable...

    USBLoaderGX doesn't even touch those files, you should first plug out the power from the wii and leave it +30min, if it didnt help try to remove your modchip

    Thank you all for your help and support.

    I have tried to enter maintenance mode by pressing RIGHT on GC controller 4 (according to the Priiloader hack). That didn't do anything. I haven't tried to dismantel the controller to do the normal mainenance mode trick where you have to press all 4 directions at once because I borrowed the controller...

    I also tried to remove the battery and the power supply for 15 min. without any success.

    I think I will try to open the Wii and see if anything look odd.
