    A Nintendo screw bit costs less than 2 EUR nowadays, there's no single reason not to get one if you need to open a Nintendo console.

    Question mark means read error (including the simple "cover open") or still loading the banner, and yes you can't convert a PAL console to NTSC or viceversa with only a plain switch (the bootroms are different, and strictly speaking so are the analog video encoders) - that's why you should check inside :)

    There might be a Wiikey Fusion installed in your gamecube. Maybe there is also a hole for a SD Card somewhere on your GameCube. When your gamecube is booted up switch the toggle for 3 times down (down up down up down up) if this it detects a GameCube disc without having a GameCube disc inserted then there is a wiikey installed. If it didn’t detect a GameCube disc try the opposite way (up down up down up down).
    If it is a eject button simulation It should simulate the Wii eject Button. You can enter the Wii key menu by pressing 3 times eject on a Wii to upen up the Wii key menu.

    As far as I know, the region switch doesn't allow PAL games to play on an NTSC system, but instead allows US systems to play Japanese games and vice versa.

    Right, and the region switch is an official feature. It was used on systems like NR Readers.
