    my wii is starting to sound scary, something like this dudes, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsmBFP1LtwA. its not quite that bad yet but its getting worse. some discss are noisier then others.
    is there anyway to fix this without a valid guarantee? (wiikey chipped)

    thanks

    i might get the chip out and sent it to nintendo they won't look farther than the laser since there are more problems with the laser even with people who didn't chip their wii.

    read somewhere I dont know where though if you hit it on the right side hard (not like breaking it), he got it fixed.

    I don't recommend it but I should rather take the chip out and get a replacement.

    Also, svantove, in Sweden we guys are ALLOWED to chip our machines even if M$ etc. say "NO YOU CANT"... well welcome to sweden and show your "own international laws up your ass" =)... so take it out, call Nintendo, play the Wii for them in the phone, get a new one. Put the chip in it, enjoy =)

    well nintendo isn't that strict and maybe they don't look farther than the laser. Since it's possible to quitte make it look like an unopened wii.

    I would think they would replace the whole CD ROM assembly, which I would probably end up with a D2C or something in return... which then I would have a useless Wiikey.

    I think if I just replace the laser I'll be fine, but no one seems to know how to do it...

    in the thread "replacement laser''someone did it and explains how to. It's not so much more work then replace the whole driver so i think they just replace the laser

    the chip is the reason your laser dies
