    Howdy reader!

    Here's the deal... I got a wii board, bricked.
    The only thing that is attached to this board is the bluetooth module, the heatsink and the on/off switches (all switches less the one that goes in the front panel by wire).
    When I plug the power supply on it, the power led goes red.. then when I press the on switch it goes green... but still no video no nothing since it's bricked.
    My question is:

    This board alone, as is.. if it wasn't bricked, would output video?

    When I power it on, it doesn't go off.. green light still on forever.
    I already tried to boot it with bootmii files in a sd card and the sd card in the slot, nothing happens
    I also tried to do the gc pad trick in port 4.. still no screen.

    So... before I take my fully working wii apart to use the parts to try to power this board on... please answer [​IMG]
    Also.. I actually can swap the components freely from a board to another?

    Thank you in advance!

    You should tell us what you where doing or what was happening when it bricked.

    I don't think it's considered a 'brick' if the hardware fails... that's what a hardware failure is.

    You may want this thread moved over to the Hardware section...

    @ Bunie: Hell if I know LOL. I got this board as is. No case, no other stuff attached to it. All I know about this board is - It's just bricked. Nothing more, nothing less. Guy took it out from wii case and brought to me.

    @ CarbonX13: It's NOT a hardware fail. This board was softbricked. Dunno how. Never seen it working.
    Please read my questions again.
    I want to know if "JUST the board" can output video if it wasn't softbricked or I need to have all components attached to it in order to get video?
