    hey guys... i was playing guitar hero: smash hits a while ago... i then think i turned of the console when it said "saving... do not disconnect" or something like that... now whenever i turn on my wii it says "press a to continue" with a picture of a wiimote... i'm pretty sure it got a save corruption of some kind... anyways, fortunately i had a NAND backup made with Bootmii (which i think should save everything)... the problem is... it's kind of an old backup... is there a way i could backup the new NAND and erase just the corrupted save? is it hard?... if it's not possible i'll just use my backed up one...

    i can't believe wii's can get bricked by something as simple as turning it off in a bad time... i mean... what happens to people that can't install bootmii?

    What happens if you press a...?

    Is the error message on the system menu or in game?

    have you tried reconnecting your wiimote with the little red button in the battery compartment? [​IMG]

    The "press a to continue" health check screen is definitely not a brick [​IMG];

    You can try using Waninkoko's save game manager through the HBC to back up any save files and such that you have made progress on since making that nand backup, or see if it can remove that corrupted save file altogether (not exactly sure what it can do).

    Then if you must you can just restore the backup and then restore your backed up save files back afterwards.

    sure it isnt the bluetooth module is broken? it could just be that the remotes dont sync because bluetooth module is broken...if you boot HBC through BootMii, do the remotes work?

    ohh never mind guys... metroid4life14 was right... it was just a problem with syncing the wiimotes... i didn't tried when the "press A to continue" thing appeared... i just tried before or in bootmii... now it works [​IMG]... it just made me select the language, country, date and time and all that again... and re-sync my wiimotes... i wonder why though... and my saves seem so be still there [​IMG]... do u think how this could have happened? could it have been the shut down while saving?
