    Banned
    Hi Guys, I bought a Wii off ebay supposedly fully working, I've just turned it on and have no picture on the screen, also the power button stays red and the drive flash blue when I press the on button....

    Am I doing something wrong or is it faulty?

    Thanks

    Sounds nice but it was no paypal which is why it was so cheap, they guy isn't replying...It was £70 boxed with controller and nunchuck...was advertised as working though so was hoping it was a simply fix?

    It won't let me insert a CD, It did originally have the Wii Sports in it which I ejected and I haven;'t been able to do anything since

    Not sure unless its already been opened though I wouldn't do that if its arrived faulty.

    Sounds like a Video chip error.

    I think there is such a thing as wii red light of death.

    I would check the cable, as It could been set to some stupid composite cable.

    Would hold down the power when you turn it on and check the cables setup correctly.

    I tried on my Samsung plasma downstaires and then my Toshiba in the bedroom, both registering a signal but the screen stays black...gonna ring nintendo..>Thanks

    Do the wiimotes sync up? Do you hear any sound?

    It does sound as if its just not outputting at the right resolution or something. You could try a soft reset by holding the reset button 2/3 seconds, not sure if that will help.

    Yeah, am gonna try this out, process of illimination I guess

    you say it's making a clicking noise ? You also say you ejected the wii sports disc ??? have you put any other disc in ? You say you can't put another disc in it...do you mean when you try it just wont accept it...what about with a little push ?? Sounds to me like the cogs are gone on your drive and if thats the case then you would need to send it somewhere to get a new drive installed. Mine did the same thing but i could manually put a disc in but it would eject it as it would just make a clicking noise.
