    Ok I turned on my wii today to find the mac address of it so i could use my friends internet (Mac address filtering) and when i went into the wii settings it brings me to a black screen? I wanna say its a semi brick but it brought me to a black screen not an opera page. Can anyone figure out why that would happen?

    There
    you must've updated to a different region via disc update,if your below 4.2 the easy fix is to install IOS70 and update to 4.2

    You might need to give a little more detail. What's the last thing you did to the wii before you noticed this problem? Did the problem exist for a long time, or did it just start?

    Well i'm not sure when it could have happened because i haven't gone into my wii settings for a long time. I'm on system menu 4.2, and i've never installed a system menu other then Usa. The last thing that i did when something weird happened was i was exiting mplayerCE and got a code dump. And one time I booted up my wii to a "System files corrupt" message but I booted into priiloader and it went away.

    Check the preloader settings to make sure the menu IOS is set to IOS70. If the menu is set to run on IOS249 this happens.

    There
    as long as you have preloader and don't go out of wad manager after uninstalling IOS 70(install it first before going out)
