    Hello.
    Recently my wii has been randomly turning off and stuff,
    It today randomly turned off and the blue-tooth module has blown and all I get is a black screen no syncing wiimotes either,
    It still gets bootmii and stuff,
    Also after it randomly turned off it made a clicking sound when I pressed the power button to turn on and then turned back off,
    PLZ help.

    Well its pretty obviously blown(broken) Because I have had one before and fixed it by getting a new bluetooth,

    Its not burnt or anything like that but it just doesn't boot to any menu or the press a screen.
    I can get to the HBC and run apps with the GC controller but the wiimotes will not sync.
    Trying to play games gives a green screen.

    I really want to know what could have caused this

    There is also some hard black resin stuff on the drives chip.
    Is it possible someone tried to install a modchip on it before I got it off ebay?.
    And could that cause the turning off problem?..

    could be far fetched, but since it is your second time and i don't believe in that big of coincidence maybe you should take a look at the surroundings of your wii.

    maybe you have some big ass sound system sitting next to it, they contain magnets witch can do weird stuff to electronics.

    To be fair, I don't remember seeing a warning saying "Keep away from big ass magnets" in the wii's instructions. Maybe I didn't look hard enough though.

    some people have very small brains and can't cope with think for themselves, that's why there's a manual, they can continue to be a vegetable and rot with the slug they called a brain

    Lol that's silly,

    Anyway I did find a few magnetic objects around the wii...
    Is there any chance they could cause this?.

    most likely you must have at least 50-70 cm from a magnet
