    i got 3 wiis. trying to fix them or at least make one of them work. also have a working wii i use to test dead and non working parts.
    2 of the black screen wiis ive tested with working bluetooth and wifi module. still a black screen. it powers on and green light is lit. but nothing on the screen.
    1 of the wiis when plugged goes red. after pressing power button it dies. i have to remove the power and replug it. it wont even turn on green. any help would be great

    The black screen Wii's may be bricked, software-wise. How old are they?

    ok managed to "fix" one. issue with the composite cable. it was setup at 480p. i needed to use component cables. it was at ver 2.2. maybe the reason why it wont auto detect the 480i.

    still other wii powers of when pressed. 1 wii powers on blank screen
