so i finally got my cyclowiz today.
i took apart my wii and i installed the cyclowiz successfully.
i turned it on, and the LED was on.

so i turned everything off again, and attempted to install the on/off switch and the reset wire.
FAIL.
i test my wii again, and the LED light is off, the dvd drive didnt even spin.
i had a legit disc in there and i got a disc read error.
FUkk

i took out all the wires, thinking it would work, and i tested it again.
nothing.

so i completely desolder my cyclowiz.

still nothing.

WTF DO I DO!??
the wii itself works, i can turn it on, navigate and everything except it doesnt read the disc.

i should've just been satisfied with the chip itself, and been playing brawl, but i had to be a fucking idiot.

is there any way to fix it? or is there any place to buy the dvd drive alone? or am i fucked.

if you still have warranty reassemble the wii carefully with out leaving any trace of tampering it, make sure the little rubber feet that hide the screws are put back perfectly. and send it in for warranty. other then that try ebay for wii parts. i skimed through ebay they seem to be other their.

i doubt i have the warranty still. i bought it the first week the wii was launched.
also wasn't my warranty voided when i took it apart?

dont sweet it, if your still had time on your warranty, if you make it look like it hasen been opened your fine, if i remember correctly i do not recall a (warranty void if opend) sticker. any ways looks like u can buy a replacement drive, also think of how many bricked wiis thier are out thier in the world that have working drives.
