Hey, I've registered looking for help on this. I've had my Wii for ages, since mid-December, exactly a week after the initial release I believe (Argos being slow), and its worked fine ever since. But just now, literely about 40 or so minutes ago, I added another friend to my adress book earlier (3rd, I think) and he sent me a message, so I went to check my Miis to see if he had sent me his, but as soon as I scrolled over the "Start" button it crashes, and it gets weirder.
See, I have this cool box thing, the Logic3. I've used it for a long time, very reliable, and it allows me to plug all sorts of things into it, and plug it into my monitor, allowing 4 channels: TV, AV, VGI and S (No idea what S is), I've only ever used VGI and AV, for my PC and for my PS2 and Wii (Which I switch around the AV slot when I want to play the other) Neways, the screen goes blank. I move my wiimote around and nothing is happening. Mii channel has crashed before for no reason, so I'm not so suprised or distressed. I just turn it off and on again (via button on console) However when I start back up there is a very low-resolution image of the Mii Channel before my Wii, Carlton, crashed. For some reason it is on TV too. VGI is fine ans S is black emptyness as usual. But, the wiimote still vibrates, and the speakers still make noise. I realised my screen was screwed but my wii was still working, I managed to (based on sounds and rumbles) open up the Mii Channel again, and I could hear it working, but still see nothing.
Next thing I did I turned my Wii off, unplugged power, unplugged video (both sides), turned off Logic3 (my magic box thingy), wasted 10 minutes, and came back. I plugged everything back in again and turned them on, and everything worked fine. Even TV was clear. I go on Mii channel, the second I put my cursor over Start it crashes. I turn my Wii off, flick over to TV and it is a low-res screen of my Wii before it crashed. This time I just turn off my Wii, flick off Logic3, then flick Logic3 back on again, turn Carlton back on, everything loads up fine. I open my mii cahnnel... go onto "Wii Menu" and return to menu. I went to a few others and they worked fine. I go to Start on Mii channel again (Having worked up some courage) and it crashes. Same again. This time I go over to a few others and they all work fine, except photo channel, when I go start on that it crashes too. Interestingly the two channels that have previews before Wii24 downloads the rest. I do the same again, but this time it crashes the instant I the Mii Channel appears, doesn't even wait for me to cursor over the Start button.
Really sorry for the long post, took some explaining ^^ I just really hope someone has had a similiar experience and knows how to fix it. I'm going to try a system update, but I doubt much will happen. Thanks for reading and I hope some people reply ^^
*edit* System update did nothing. I realised however, it doesn't crash. But for some reason mutes itself. I went onto photo channel again and it crashed instantly, but I felt my Wiimote rumble. So I volumed up on Logic3 and it started making sounds, but no matter what I did it was still blank. So I guess it wasn't crashing, just blacking out :S At this point I'm going to turn everything off when I go to bed (I usually have my Wii and Logic3 and sometimes even my PC all running and producing alot of heat within half a meter of each other, so its no suprise if one of them over-heats, I also have my PS2 going during the day alot too. It's a warm day today too, oddly enough, but I think thats just because it was cold yesterday and my dad put the heating up really high)
