    When update was over black screen comed up.
    After a five minutes black screen was still there so i turned my wii off and pluged the power back on, and then where not any picture on the screen (wii won't send picture to the TV).

    You shouldn't let your Wii update through the Nintendo Servers/Game Update without knowing what's gonna happen.

    First of all.

    Do you have BootMii installed, if so, as boot2 or IOS?

    What version are you on? 4.0, 4.1, 3.2, 3.4?

    What game was it? What system menu did you have?

    If you once had 4.0, downgraded to 3.2 and the game had 3.4, your Wii is completely dead.

    I did downgraded the wii from 4.0 to 3.2, but before the wii got this problem i puted Mario Kart Wii and it asked to updtae my Wii and it did, then when it did finished
    i puted Punch Out and it asked to update, after update and when i turned it off and back on my Wii didn't send picture to TV
    My Wii can be turned on (green light) and it can read disc but there is no picture on TV.

    I'm sure Punch out has 3.4 on it, 3.4 uses IOS50, which is replaced by a stub IOS on 4.0. Stub IOS are NOT working IOS and installed to save some memory and/or prevent easy downgrading.

    The problem here is that most (or better all) methods to downgrade to 3.2 did not downgrade IOS50 too. The result of this is that your system menu now uses a not working IOS. All the savemii, update with autoboot disc and modchip, preloader and whatever stuff requires a working system menu IOS.

    Only BootMii installed as boot2 can protect from this kind of brick.

    The flat lands.
    And what WiiPower is saying, your wii is dead. Send it in to Nintendo or buy a new one...

    Unless you have bootmii.

    Tell me, why do people downgrade?!?! 4.0 and 4.1 can do more than 3.2. Guess some people never learn.

    Better ask what to NOT install:
    - system menu themes
    - cioscorp and similar stuff
    - system menu from the wrong region
    - wads from source you can't 100% trust
    - downgrade stuff(except IOS15)
    - modified system menu IOS
    - updates from nintendo, wifi or disc does not matter

    Then you will be safe, when you turn your brain on.

    Other way is: buy an OLD wii, install BootMii to boot2, make a nand backup, and your are safe.

    you gonna need to send it to Ninty and it will probably come back as a new wii were you cant install BootMii as boot2 and it will probably be LU65+.

    instead of giving nintendo the $80 or more, i'd go buy a old 2nd hand wii from the pawn shop or gumtree, craigslist etc. then atleast you can install BootMii as boot2 and hack it alot easier than if you get a brand new one back from nintendo.

    Yes, Wiipower is right but the problem nowadays is, where to get a NOS Wii where BootMii can be installed to Boot2?
