    Sure looks like some fried components indeed. I'd say, pop the thing open (if it's out of warranty, that is) and check for a match-like or plastic-burn smell. Check if components can be replaced relatively easy (ehm, As far as I know that would be just the dvd-drive or nothing at all, in case of a wii) and find them cheap on ebay. Otherwise, off to the store for a new wii you go, because this most likely isn't a software-based brick!

    well what i can do is run original disk games on it from the recovery menu which says my wii is 3.2e but i can't update via disc with 3.3e games i.e animal crossing as i think the wii thinks its also on 4.0 from when i installed waninkokos 4.0 updater

    can't use tp hack as i don't have it in my save files no more and can't use smash stack as ssbb don't autoboot without a mod chip

    and i can't get a mod chip as i have no money at the moment so if anybody has any ideas please i would like to know as i have been pondering on this problem now for almost 3 months if not longer

    no to both the last replies and Yyhhggtt theres no need to be patronizing in your post i no i should of had bootmii installed but i totally forgot about it and as for preloader i had it on there but didn't realise that it gets deleted if you downgrade and before anyone says anthing about downgrading yes i know what i'm doin and ys the downgrade did complete it was a soon as i installed the bad csm it went like this
