Hi all, I'm hoping to get some advice on whether i should buy a wii from this guy who said he is selling a so called faulty NTSC-U Wii as he has now bought a 2nd hand Pal console with NO cables, power supply, senseor bar or anthing else so he can play his uk games. I'm not sure how old the wii is but i presume its probaly more than a year. He tells me that the wii starts with no problems and goes into the wii menu. He then said as soon as you try and play a game the SCREEN GOES BLACK!!!!! He is selling it for £40 and I dont want to question him too much as I thiink he may put the price up. I have already asked him for the serial number at the bottom of the wii and the date but forgot to ask him if it has been softmodded in the past. I dont think so! I figured i could get the cables cheap somewhere by googling. Questions? 1. Should I buy it? (bearing in mind i'll only have to spend about £20 on power,wires,sensor etc) 2. Has anyone who HAS NOT SOFTMODDED ever had this problem? 3. Has anyone who HAS SOFTMODDED ever had this problem? 4. Could i fix it as it lets you into the main Wii menu. 5. Is this a common problem? 6. Could i still install boot mii (either as boot1 or boot2 - not sure yet) and launch homebrew channel & preloader 0.29 7. Does anyone now of any other recent/relevant threads with a fix? Sorry i cannot provide any more information than and thanks in advance for your support!
