    Hi guy, the description says it all. I have the pixel problem where there's just some pixels on the screen or "artifacts".


    I first noticed these pixels on a backup launcher channel installed. I thought it was isolated. Then they showed up on a wii-scrubbed game. But yesterday i noticed them slightly, but definitely present on the normal disc and mii channels. So, i'm guessing this is a problem with the wii hardware.

    I'm gonna send it in for repair, can you guys please advise me on how to get it back to stock, so i don't lose my warranty? Thank you.

    Follow The instructions in this link to completely remove them.


    Keep in mind: nintendo may give you back a different wii, which means that it may be possible that after you resoftmod it, you can't install bootmii as boot2 or load backup discs.

    i understand boot2 is for brick protection, but i'm using only a usb loader and some wads...do i really need that brick protection?

    I heard you have to be really stupid to brick it or jump guns on updates. Can you confirm this?

    Nintendo will replace your Wii. No other way to fix it.
