    my wii has been changed to 3.4j and system was wiped clean (thanks to my sister) i do not have a mod chip or a japan copy of zelda.
    if i send it to Nintendo should i break something on the inside short out the circuit board with a drop of water or something so they can't tell that it's out of region?
    also will they say anything if some of the screws are worn ?
    i only ask as money is tight and this seems to be the only option, i did order a modchip but it came broken + the supplier won't respond to my emails.

    one either mod-chip it, and fix the wii, which is what i would do, I hate to see someone destroy a perfectly good wii, but i guess you could do something to it to make it stop working,

    Because when you posted... you pressed reload and then press "resend data" therefore creating a double post.

    I haven't heard of a single case where nintendo has refused to fix something because of a botched softmod. I'd just send it in as is.

    And for the future, i'd remove Any Region Changer from your memory card after you used it so pesky siblings can't get into things.
