    guys something horrible happened ...

    i was updating cyclowiz and i turned the switch on and it i smelled something burned.

    next thing the wii turned off.

    i opened the wii and this is how it looks


    look how the DMS its lightly burned...

    now someone helped me remove the cyclowiz and the idiot broke it and now it looks like this

    the wii turns on... and i can see the channels but when i enter one... i lasts like 10-15 seconds and resets...

    the DVD wont eject nor Insert discs.

    anyone knows how to fix this?

    is this fixable?

    when i sent my dvd drive to be modded, i hooked the rest of my wii up to play channels. it would run a channel for 15-20 seconds then i would get a black screen. Once i hooked the dvd drive back up, they worked fine.

    it sounds like one of two things:

    the dvd ribbon isn't properly put back


    the drive chip is toast, it's not sending any signal to the wii, so it goes black screen on ya...

    agree with the guy above

    from the picture you supplied it looks like the chip burned from inside out, meaning there was a short or something try wiping your dms chip with something like alcohol or acetone. if it doesnt clean off (like not a smooth surface on the chip) then the chip indeed burn inside out, meaning you need a new chip, it sounds like maybe the switch was connected wrong, and shorted. maybe sell your wii parts on ebay? or start searching for a new chip
    so basicly its fixable only if you can find the exact panasonic dms chip or wii drive (real hard at this time, i'd say) seeing how theres no broken wii in ebay at all yet maybe you can ask around could always attempt to return it to nintendo maybe.
