    HI I got an Wii, and it has nothing... it does nothing.

    [​IMG]

    It boots, but it doesn't show anything on the TV, black screen.

    I am searching for Bootmii files, to copy them on a card, and see if it has bootmii..

    any suggestions further?

    EDIT: Nope... bootmii wont start [​IMG]
    What is the Anno 2011, August way to Unbrick a wii, that goes on and does not show anything, except a red background (prolly my tv) for 0.5 second/

    Look at the bottom of your Wii and tell me what the last set of letters are for the Model Number.

    Buy a used USA game, prefereably one that is around 3 years old and update through the recovery menu.

    It doesn't matter, it just has to include a System Menu over 3.2 (and preferably below 4.2).

    For an (incomplete) list of games and the included System Menu updates, choose the first result.

    Before going through with this, wait a day or so to see if someone else has a better solution.

    It might be a bad bluetooth module or could be a full brick.
    What are the first 6 characters of the serial number (ie. LU5604)?

    But wait, [​IMG]

    I don't even know how to unbrick it yet..

    Is it like this:

    Put it in recovery mode (called savemiifrii)
    and then put in mario kart, and it boots?

    Thanks

    Yeah, but that is not always good enough to do anything, and the OP decided to ignore my question about what his serial number is, so he gets no more help from me.

    Diagnostic Disc Check wasn't part of older SM's, so I think that oliverbomb can run an update through the recovery menu.
