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.

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.

Once you figure out the type of brick you have then go here and read the faqs on how to fix it:

Wii console won't switch on - has been working


many times after a power surge even with it on a surge protector the power brick can go bad
have replaced countless power bricks

if you have a friend with a wii see if you can barrow the brick to test you system out ... Power bricks run under $10 at the right places.
most of the time power brick will go before it gets to the system

if it still doesnt work try to power it on with wiimote or eject power button might have broken they are weak buttons and break easy

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.

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!

Bricked my wii


Sorry to hear about your Wii. The ONLY way to restore your Wii back to normal is if you made a backup of your Wii's NAND using BootMii. Currently there are no ways to fix this unless you have your Wii's NAND.

Can't get into wii settings


Hi there, I have uploaded a file on the following link http://www.4shared.com/account/dir/5026890/ce5fe369/sharing.html?rnd=64 copy the file which fits your Wii (Japanese or US or Europe) and use Winrar to open the ISO file. Then burn the iso file onto a DVD with low speed like 2x. Then, insert the DVD into your Wii and play the game like normal, it will ask for software update and click yes. Then take out the DVD and check your Menu setting, it comes back.
