    Are the any US repairers that you guys can recommend?

    Are there any repair cds I can try, don't want to try hardmodding it since they will probably be able to tell that I did that esp since I need a fan repair.

    If there is nothing I can do but send it to Nintendo, how can they find out I softmodded my system?
    Read they charged someone $230 (probably before the price change), my wii goes directly to the black screen, no double flashes and I don't know if I can use preloader (installed it, but isn't in my apps folder), could someone tell me how to get the stuff that is in the preloader apps folder? Also I have bootmii folder with armboot, pcc thing (my laptop shut off), and a bootmii notepad (is there anyway I can get a bootmii.ini, would that work?

    I kind of don't want to send it to Nintendo since I registered it on their website, its a really old wii, got it the first christmas it came out.

    when you turn on the wii, does the disc slot light flash a couple times quickly?
    what happens when you hold reset and turn it on?

    if u installed priiloader (and didn't un-knowing uninstall it) u MAY still be able to access it. Try holding reset right after u turn on the wii. It will take u to priiloader if u have it. If that doesn't work, continue reading DeadlyFoez thread on fixing bricks
