    Same problem with mine. Turns on but no picture on the tv. Tried hooking up another Wii with my cords and that one worked fine. What's the deal?

    mine does the same the power is on but nothing happens

  • jacintamusic Sep 22, 2008

    I plug in and turn on my wii. I get the "read your manual for health warnings" screen and it prompts me to press A. I do so and it comes up blank.

    I tried unplugging it for an hour and it does the same thing. I have all the plugs plugged in correctly.

I found this [temporary] solution at http://www.wiierror.com/wii-black-screen.php:

(via email, thanks Steven) This happened to me once, but I fixed it. Here is how:
Eject the disk
Unplug the wii at the back
Wait 1 minute
Plug it back in
Turn it on from the remote
Press reset if it does not show up
Hold the power button to shut it off
Turn it on once more.
I don't know how, but it seemed to work for me. The problem happened when I was trying to load the Mii channel. Hope this helps !

(via email, thanks Andrew)
The first time I shut down my Wii, the light went orange (as it should). When I turned on the power with my wii remote the next day, the wii\'s light turned green but the screen was black.
The treatment was the same as from Black Screen, No Connection: Unplug the Wii\'s power supply unit, then replug; turn system on with wii remote.
The difference is: this problem can strike in more places than just by loading the Mii Channel. Also, I think the green light being on (yet there being a black screen) is a common symptom as well.

Screen is black


If you're getting just a flashing cursor on a black screen it's probably a motherboard/video card/hard disk problem (probably motherboard).

If there's not even a flashing cursor - just a black screen - you can add a failed power unit to your list of problems.

The easiest way to check is to borrow a power unit and video card from a friend's computer. There's no need to remove your existing power unit. Simply disconnect the power cables from the motherboard and connect the spare power unit in its place.

If your computer powers up it is obviously a faulty power unit to blame. IIf there's still nothing on the screen, power down the computer and replace the video card with the spare one. If there's still nothing on the screen when you power it up then in all probability your motherboard is history

Screen is black will not take pictures


If screen is black you have 2 situations: camera is power on or power off. If its power on and screen is black, its very possible to have something defective inside on the cam microcomputer board or with the display block, and my suggestion is to get to a repair shop for a test or if you are still in the grace period from the manufacturer, to ask for a free investigation. Cheers (PS sometimes black screen occurs when the LCD inverter is gone)

BLACK SCREEN WITH POWER TO LAPTOP


O n most dell laptops right at the base of the screen is a panel that pops off. If so there is a small card about 1-2inches wide ans 3-4 inches long. It is above the keyboard. this is an aux. power board and should have a connection on it to help power the screen. If this model dosent have this poard than the built in screen cooler is bad and you will have to replace the whole screen.
