I sold my Wii to my sister and the DVD drive packed up(I will explain this again).
I took it back and refunded her money thinking i could have a little fun, so i bought another Wii chassis at ToysRus for R80, plastic primer-ed the case and sprayed the case gold.
I was ready to take this console apart when i realized the chassis replacement didn't even bother to include a triwing screwdriver, eish.
I was too impatient to order one, so i used a flat and eventually got the suckers out, i was committed.
After what felt like hours i had the machine in pieces and discovered the cable ribbon's nipple on the Wii's PCB had broken off and used hot glue to replace the missing nipple.
I put a disc in and it spins, i thought my journey was over until i got a disc error every time i switched the machine on.
As a man with Wii softmodding experience i tried ModMii this time for a change as i did previously update my firmware to 4.2 accidentally to play my Goldeneye with limited edition gold controller(I was impatient).
No big deal i eventually got the machine modded just the way i like with a decent usb loader and multimod with CIOS bundled to ensure perfect compatibility for my games as i still hadn't finished Twilight princess.
I thought to hell with the DVD drive and promptly yanked out the drive.
I contemplated modding it into my LCD TV but i was getting ahead of myself here, i needed to test this modded monster out and bring it back to life!
I fired it up and she boot like a champ....
I installed all necessary apps, and fire up my backup from the Harddrive and im greeted with a disc error.
A DISC ERROR!!!???
After spending around R250 on materials and 14 hours of my life trying to save the Wii i have failed.
It sits in front of me in pieces and i cannot think of a use for this machine......
Should i leave in on the train tracks and get another one since i have accessories for it?
Is a Wode jukebox or sunkey chip even worth it at this point since i have seen the console R100 cheaper then a PS2 at my local Cash Crusaders?
If im missing something please enlighten me, can this machine be fixed besides a new DVD drive and ribbon requiring solder to the board or Wode/sunkey or am i now finally allowed to give up?
Dammit im irritated!
