    I received my wiinja yesterday and after I was done installing everytime I put an original or backup game in the wii it says "An error has occurred..." I then rechecked everything and then the drive stopped working for a while then it came back to just doing the same thing. Then I took the wiinja out and when I put a disc in, the wii would spin a lot making loud noises then it just went to an error. I resoldered the wiinja again and now the dvd drive keeps ejecting and inserting the disc whenever its one in it. Heres pics of my installation.

    You should put clickable thumbs. I can't look at your botched solder job. If I was to guess I'd say you probably bridged a contact since it does not work with or without the chip.

    Yea I probably did. I just bought some desoldering braid and a oxidation cleaner for my soldering iron so I can make sure I do everything correctly.

    By the looks of that first picture, I think he shorted at least 4 wires with a huge blob of solder. My advice? Try and remove the solder (by non-violent means, don't try to melt it off, scrape it off with a screwdriver, cut it off, etc.), see if the console works, and then find someone who knows what he's doing, and have him/her do it for you.

    My buddy installed a Cyclowiz, and it would never fully pull the disc in the tray. Turns out he overtightened the DVD-ROM screws.

    But from viewing even the thumbnail, it does look like a solder bridge. Remove it, and hope it did not cause permanent damage!

    Well thanks for the replies but I got this fixed. Apparently there was this screw loose in the wii and I got it out by shaking it and it fell out. Then I cleaned up the wii of any solder with desoldering braid and made sure it was clean and tried it and the original games worked again. I then resoldered the wiinja and tried it and it works flawlessly. Thanks.

    [​IMG] I have no idea that white piece is just somewhere in a special place. Hope it doesn't hunt for me in the end. [​IMG] Everytime I open something up I end up loosing a screw or two and having a screw in the wrong spot.

    LOL, now you're lucky that it still works. Pretty fun story. [​IMG]

    Anyway I enjoy seeing people break their consoles when they try to install a modchip. Why you may ask? Because in my opinion you should never try if you arent 100% sure what you are doing, especially with a $250 console. Probally just my bad humour or that i'm just evil [​IMG]

    Anyway I do recommend you taking your console to someone who knows what their doing, maybe a friend who knows how to solder. A professional installer doesnt really charge that much for modding a Wii anyway, just my recommendations.
