I have tried holding in the reset button as well as the eject button and I haven't got anything to come up on the screen. So I am wondering if the system is screwed or not. I have taken it apart before to try to see if the dvd drive was plugged in right or stuck as it wouldn't play any wii games through its loader anymore. So I took it apart again and everything was fine and left it open and tried to turn it on and got the same thing. Does it have some type of special thing on it to know that the system isn't put together or something like little button things that are on the lips for the cover when you put it back together and causes the system to do this? Or is it that the video could possibly be screwed? I am sure it worked before I had put it away about a year ago now it decided to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
