    You twisted the wireless receiver? Why would you do that?

    You have to open that Wii up and see the damage.

    I was trying to pull out the wireless receiver and it got stuck and it was unresponsive so I twisted it. Do I need a tri-wing screwdriver to open it?

    Yes, tri-wing screwdriver is needed to open up the Wii.

    Amazon or ebay.

    Did you brake off the middle tab that is inside the controller slot or did the entire controller slot brake off?

    Middle tab is where the contacts are made. In that case you have to salvage GameCube port (not sure if you can replace just one or all 4 of them has to be replaced) from another Wii and solder it onto your Wii. Probably better if you just buy another Wii. I don't know if there is any way to reassign ports on Wii.

    I'm currently selling a GC compatible Wii if you are interested.
