No video output but sound OK

Hi this is my first post and I hope someone can help me. My Wii no longer has video output but the sound is ok. I have tried another cable and another TV screen which didn't work so it must be the console itself. Since it is out of warranty my dad (electronic engineer) has done some investigation on the web and found a website which mentioned failed motherboard fuses (FIL18, 21, 22, and 27) but these are all ok and buzz through to the right video connector. Is there anything else he can try before he gives up and has to send the unit off for repair? I'm desperate to get using MarioKart again!!!
Did you ever get an answer to this problem? I'm having the exact same issue and I can't find anyone with a good answer.

If you still get this update and have an answer I would appreciate your help.

I never found out what was wrong and still don't have a working wii. I think it will have to go for repair but there is nowhere local that does it.
