I've got a weird issue with my Nintendo Wii, one that I've never heard of before. The issue is that my wii will not respond to my wii remotes. by that I mean if I press any button on the remote, including the power button when the wii is off, the lights will flash on the remote like it is searching for the console, and then fail to connect. The same thing occurs when I try to sync the remotes, they search, but don't find the wii. The system menu I'm operating on is 4.2 US I used cIOS 36 on DOP-mii for most of my modding my Wii In concern to what I did that may have caused this problem, the one thing I can think of is that I was trying to get the bannerbomb exploit to run on my wii again, so that I could try to reinstall bootmii in order to do a NAND backup. I tried to do this by readding the specific files that activated the bannerbomb exploit. I did this by placing the boot.elf file on the root of my SD card, and the aktn folder in it's proper place inside of the private/title folder. This solution did not work, and so I deleted the boot.elf file and the aktn folder. Now while this is one of the most recent things I can think of, this may be unrelated to the problem. I first ran into this problem when I was about to start playing a Wiiware game on my SD card that I had installed using WAD manager. The specific game was Lost Winds: WotM. I had played this game just fine without any troubles before, but this time when the game loaded my remote disconnected, and since then it can't connect to the wii no matter what. I really have no idea why. Basically the wii turns on fine and everything still seems to work, but without wii remote connectivity I can't navigate the system menu or play games. Luckily I do have Priiloader installed, and so I can get to the Homebrew channel and navigate from there. But I need my Wii to recognize Wii remotes again. So what's my best plan of action? Is more information needed? I can provide any information needed, including screen caps of my SD card. I thought one option might be to edit my wii to allow for using a gamecube controller on the system menu, so that I might format my wii system memory, after I back them up with savegame manager, and hope that that will make my wii able to recognize remotes again. I'm open to any ideas or advice, so please, let me know how I can solve this problem.
