Hi guys & gals ... This is my first post here. I'm no noob to Nintendo's, actually I'm a huge fan and have got loads of original Gameboys, Colors, Pockets, Light, GBA's, GBA SP's, Micro, DS, DSL, DSI, XL, 3DS, NES, SNES, Famicom, N64, Gamecube and Wii Thankfully my Wii which I bought at launch still works great. But I have another Wii, original model in white which my brother gave me because it was broken. I have had it for about 4 years but never managed to fix it The symptom: Plug in and the power light comes red Press power button and light becomes blue + disc light comes on blue and stays lit .... At this stage the screen remains black, no sound from disc drive and it won't accept discs. The disc drive light stays on What i've tried: Tried the power supply and cables from my working Wii ...... Makes no difference Opened up the Wii and disconnected the disc drive ..... No difference Unplugged the Wifi module and tested with and without it connected ...... No difference Switch on Wii and immediately press reset ..... No difference Tried some ZIP file I downloaded and copied to an SD card and switched on the Wii ..... No difference According to my brother the Wii had a mod chip installed but when the Wii died (suddenly) he blamed it on the disc drive. He bought a replacement drive which is the one that is currently installed. A modchip cannot be installed on this drive due to the epoxy/glue over the chips. He lost the original drive with the modchip. I'd love to get this Wii to function again, not because I need it as I have my original Wii but because I hate seeing it like that. I'd really appreciate some help here as I cannot find anything on google with the symptoms of Black screen, cannot accept discs, solid blue disc drive light remaining on.
