craigslist. google. you may have f'ed yourself right good though if it's as bad as you say with solder connecting various legs to each other.

well i have some solder connect the a, b, c points but it can easily be disconnected with desoldering equipment (that i dont have).

should i just search "solder" on google locals or something? thanks again

Relevant desoldering equipment: soldering iron and a $3 chunk of desoldering braid (wick).

Wii chips are relatively simple to do, even the D2C wouldn't be all that tough after doing a bunch of PSP chips (those need pin point precision and magnification to do), though I haven't had to deal with a D2C myself as of yet I usually solder right to the legs of the main chip on the PS2's which is no bigger pitched than the drive chips.

I'm surprised it's not easier to find an in-state installer, though I guess with recent crack downs in the USA installers are disappearing (rightfully so, who really wants their homes raided to help a few non-solder capable people out), and I suspect come the new year some new laws will come to Canada as well. A right PITA sending stuff across the border to Canada, with customs on anything over $20 goods, customs holding packages for up to 2 weeks, and the lack of international insurance when using most reasonably priced and reliable shipping methods.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
