Ok, so I bought a Wii off a gent for $50. It would power on, but has no video. After opening the system, It looks like he had either attempted to install or did have a drive chip installed. So I guess I have a few questions. My first is, would a bad install of his "chip" cause no video? Also if the system was in perfect working order and I disconnected the disc drive, would there be video? That would help me figure out if the problem is on the Main board or the Disc drive.

Check here for some ideas... sounds like the same symptom, although he never said if any of the suggestions worked, so try them and report back.

Ok, so I tried the suggestions in the link above.

I reseated the blue tooth and wi-fi boards, and no luck.

I tested all fuses and all were found good on the main board (the was one that looked like a fuse on the blue tooth adapter, that didn't do anything when tested (but maybe its not a fuse)).

In the link above one person suggested swapping the NAD chip, due to possible bad flash. from what I have gathered from here is that it is not possible, because they have unique keys.

Well anyways, I did further tests with the Wii. there is no video. and the Wiimote will not connect. No audio (but there wouldn't be if i cant press 'A' on the first screen. disc drive checks for disc and spins if it finds one. Well if yall have any ideas as what the problem is let me know.

In the picture above, could someone tell me what that is inside the red box? I am not sore whether it is a fuse, resistor, or what. I cant get it to read on any setting. Oh, and it's on the blue tooth board.
