    Your post is not very easy to understand. Is this your problem?

    You don't specifically say you have a modchip, but I assume you do since you're posting this here.

    Sounds like a loose connection with your modchip. If originals don't play, that's usually the cause (if the right connection is broken that can happen).

    Where and how was your Wii modded? What kind of modchip?

    will... i dont really kno what mod chip it is, since its a gift to me
    is there any way to know what mod chip it is without taking wii apart?

    wii modded in taiwan...that's all i know

    and if it is broken mod chip connection, how can i fix it myself???

    Well it'll certainly lock itself if you break something, but I opened mine myself and put back together just to see if I could. (Before WiiKey arrived). You do need a Triwing Screwdriver though...

    You need a triwing screwdriver, a solder, solderiron (If not enogh solderiron on the solderpat), a steady hand, a brain.

    But thats only IF it is gotten loose.

    well... 2 day i take my wii apart, and found no caple loose, nothing wrong..
    only thing that look like a problem is that there's a burn mark on the IC (connected 2 the mod chip)
    so i suspect it might come when some1 is modding my wii, the hot rod that puts them together

    i still dont know what my mod chip is...but it looks blue from the back.... anyone know what the mod chip is?

    Your laser could also be busted.

    This happens when you use bad quality media to burn your dvd's on. There are some places where you can replace the laser..
