    everything was fine yesterday. The last game i played was wii sports resort. just turned it off, the next morning, it wont turn on! the red light goes green but the screen just stays black. there's no warning or anything. the wii won't load disc too. i tried everything and searched the other threads that had black screen problems. i unplug it and replug it but nothing happened. another thread suggested a savemiifree solution. so i tried that with a DDR matt instead of a gamecube controller (can you do that) but nothing happens. the black screen is still there. i turned the wii on and held reset and nothing happened too. (just incase preloader would load. i thought i installed it but probably i didn't install it right). the bluetooth isn't the issue since i can use the wiimote to turn it on.

    before playing wii sports resort i downgraded back to 3.2U and installed gecko OS 1.9 if that made a difference. other than that i didnt do anything else. everything was normal. and now this T_T. Any suggestions. Thanks.

    hope my wii isn't dead T_T.

    i think your board is fried if nothing works, nothing won't turn on than it's not a brick it's a hardware fault.

    ^ o wow thats scary. so even though they say the repair is 75$, when they see my homebrew channel and stuff, its possible that the price will skyrocket? =/
    should i destroy a piece in the wii so they may never know? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    if the board is fried they will probably give you a replacement wii since they won't be able to get into the wii they'll probably never know. a long time ago when the 1st wiis came out they had a graphic board problem i was a 1 of the victims, sent mine in and they replaced the whole wii...of course i lost everything on the wii though [​IMG]
