    Did you ever install homebrew on it?

  1. This is not a bricked wii.
    Wii's can not possibly brick mid game, the only potential way of that happening is the flash chip just completely corrupting. Never ever read of that happening with any console ever.
    Homebrew will make no difference here as again, would not happen mid game, literally impossible.

    Basically, either the wifi module or the bluetooth module has died. Those 2 are the only components (other than certain motherboard components which are very unlikely to fail) that will stop the wii working totally and just present the user with a black screen at boot. (the same to look at as a full brick via badly doing homebrew). If its in warranty send it to nintendo, if it isn't, take it apart and replace the wifi or bluetooth module which is an easy job if you are ok at taking things apart

  1. i Think Your Wii Is Full-Bricked. Which Means The Only Way To Fix This Is To Send It To Nintendo. Or Take Out The Plugs In The Back And Put It Back It.

  2. Yeah, it sounds like your Wii is toast. But maybe not. Follow these directions from Nintendo to see if it really is bricked. If it is, there's a link there for repairs.

  3. check that you're on the right video channel with your television. if the light won't even go green, Nintendo are only to help with that.

  4. Ummm.... did you try taking both ends of your plugs out for 5 min. amd pluging them back in?
    If not try it, it has happend multiple times to me, the red light isn't even on and i looked at the manual and it said unplug BOTH ends and wait for 5 minutes sand it worked and now it only happens when the power goes out or the power surges so idk :P
