    i tried to take part my wii but I've made things bad. The Wii won't eject my Disc.

    I'm not going to try to fix it, it is getting shipped off to Nintendo.

    I'm really sad because SMG is out soon.

    Make sure none of the ribbon cables came off. And why did you open it?

    To try to get my Wii chip number.

    I'm scared, what will Nintendo do when they get my Wii?

    I haven't shipped it yet.

    this happened to me too the first time we opened it. We tried soldering the chip but burnt off one of the solder pads so we just put it back together.

    Then bam, the disk wouldn't eject [​IMG]

    LUCKILY though, we opened it up again and it turns out we didn't plug in one of the ribbon things all the way I think.

    So maybe try that before anything else. Unless you're sure you actually destroyed something when you opened it--- but it could just be that you overlooked something that isnt plugged in all the way like mine was.

    Hope you get it working, that was a scary couple of days for me before we fixed it

    They'll send it straight back to you when the find out it's been tampered with. Is it still under shop warranty ? If so can't you take it back to where you got it from ?

    If you opened it well enough, It's virtually impossible to tell whether it's been opened or not.

    Of course, if it has a chip in, hehe

    No. In fact, no Nintendo Console I've owned has a warranty sticker. Nor do the games.

    nintendo trusts the consumer like they're one of the family and you wouldn't suspect your family now would you [​IMG]
