I have a question about the wiring/powering of a Wii motherboard. I created a Wii portable a while ago and now the video output is messed up. The Wii now only shows a black screen when booted up. This has happened with the last two or three times trying to create my portable after a couple of times booting it up. I was wondering if anyone knows something that I'm doing wrong that could lead to this result. Is there something I'm missing or have I just accidentally shorted wiring somewhere and fried the board? It has happened several times in a row so I think I'm missing something. I can provide a simple schematic and parts if needed. The Wii is completely untrimmed and has no disk drive. It is to be noted that I used 26 AWG wire and I now know that I should have used 22 AWG instead. I just have the switch on the side that toggles the power feeding directly into the power input on the Wii board.
