So I have broken my Wii...

I had it open to try and adjust the laser pot to be able to read DL discs, and I futzed with it too much, now it won't work at all.

The Wii will power on fine, it will accept discs and eject them just fine, but it will not spin up the disc. I'm thinking because I was messing with the pot on the laser ribbon cable that I might have damaged it. Does this sound like replacing the laser/ribbon cable would fix the issue, or do I need a whole new drive?

Also, on a site note, how are you supposed to adjust the pot on the laser... it's so friggen small and I can't tell if it's turning or not...
