    2 of the pins from my main 4GB SDHC card snapped and got in the Wii's SD card slot, which I think stopped the hinge from working properly.

    I honestly don't know how this could be sorted, so I'm wondering if I have to manually open the Wii and take out the pins myself.

    you can take just the front cover off (where you insert the disc) and it might be easier to get them out than instead of dismantling the whole wii.

    Actually, I was able to find the problem. It turns out I was right, one of the pins got stuck in the spring, so I took one of my precision screwdrivers and slowly removed it out. The slot worked fine after that, go figure heh.

    Thanks for the help anyway.
