    Does the green light come on, or does it just stay on red?

    Sometimes you need to unplug the console for like 10 minutes and then try again.

    hmmmm it is a buddies and i am not sure if there is even a light on at all? i told him to unplug it and try that i hope that works. if it was bricked there should be something on green or red tho shouldn't there?? it has been working great and from what i can understand he didnt do anything to it unless his son got into something in HB? but like if it was bricked does that cut all power to it?

    If no light appears then it can't be a software failure

    Hopefully it's like what happened to me twice. I had to unplug it for an hour once. An entire day the other time. It's the weirdest thing, but both times it ran fine afterwards. Crappiest thing is it happened as I was going to show some friends how hacking the wii works, needless to say I haven't modded their Wii yet. Best of luck, try to to get frustrated!

    the same thing happened to me, cept it was a corrupted message board message and my wii decided to semi brick.... well it was a great time to show them how awesome priiloader is.. (preloader 0.28 at the time)
    as with in your case my friends did not end up modding thier wii.

    have done around 20 more since then tho so no worries.
