If you have a soft brick then you can fix the unit. If the cause of the brick is from a failed mod attempt then you're obviously not under warranty so you can discount any responses that advise you to "Send it in to Nintendo."
Instead of doing that I would visit the link below and follow their methodology to determine if you can Un-brick your wii!

My wii is hooked up properly, but when I turned the input to the right place the screen is just black. The Wii remotes will not connect at all even when charging and the wii console's light is green.


Have you checked to see if it might be your cables that are damaged? Did you mod your Wii? If you tried modding your Wii and now youre getting just a black screen it might have gotten bricked. Also try using it on a different TV.

How to fix a bricked wii


Q:What is a brick?
A:To brick a Wii is to damage the console beyond repair - as in 'A bricked Wii has all the electronic functionality of a brick'. To put it simply, fully bricked Wii consoles do absolutely nothing. The term is often used in situations where modifying a system's firmware (without necessarily making any alterations to the machine's hardware) has caused it to become inoperable.


Q: I've heard people talking about semi, banner and full bricks, What's the difference?

A: Semi bricks - Usually caused by installing an update from an out of region game. This is when a small error has occurred in the wii's system menu. If your wii is semi bricked you will not be able to access the Wii Settings.

Banner bricks - This is caused when one installs a wad that is corrupted or has an incorrect banner size. It may also be caused by installing Preloader on the wrong system menu. You will know your wii is banner bricked because when you boot your wii and it freezes after the health screen and/or say the system files are corrupted.

Full Bricks - These bricks are usually caused when the System's IOS is corrupted or uninstalled. The wii will either give an opera error or just a black screen at boot.

My wii is showing error 003 "unauthorized device has been detected on d moment i start it! it comes on a black screen


Hi,

Sounds a hacked Wii. When you updated the firmware found the hack and now your Wii may be bricked.
You can try this: While holding down the reset button, turn on the power to the Wii. If a menu comes up then your wii is definitely hacked but it has a brick safety program to get you out of it. If nothing happens then you may be out of luck.



Good luck.

Turn on the wii power and just get a black screen - no menu option at all - tried on another tv and same problem


Has your wii been modified with a chip? If so this probably means that your wii is bricked.

My wii powers up then shows only black.


Sounds like a brick. Did you try to soft mod it? If so did you install bootmii?

Wii sofmod semi bricked


To fix a semi brick or a full bricked Wii, you will need a backup of your Wii's NAND. Hopefully you made a backup of your Wii's NAND using BootMii.

Wii - installed a .wad now get black screen


I hate to scare you but that's not good. You might have bricked your Wii by installed a bad .WAD -- installing a bad WAD will most definitely brick your Wii. Hopefully you did a backup using BootMii before you did that and backed up your Wii's NAND. Thats the ONLY way you can restore your brick Wii from bad .WAD installs. Here's a few great guides that might help you unbrick your Wii.. good luck!

Black Screen Wii


Nintendo support or repairer would be your best hope, as it does sound like a low level brick.

Wii LED Green, but no Startup on screen. Cannot power off either.


Just spoke to Nintendo Technical support.  Seems the rub is in the AC adapter itself.
Need to power down at both ends of the AC adapter--unplug AC adapter from wall output AS WELL AS from back of Wii.
Wait at least two minutes to allow any charge in the adapter itself to dissapate.  Plug adapter into wall first, then back into the Wii, making sure your peripherals (eg AV receiver, TV, projector if using) are already on.
Tech support says sometimes you get a partially tripped "fuse" within the AC adapter itself.
This seems to have worked for now--will let the forum know if further problems
