    Can you run another NTSC-J game that contains the latest Firmware? Your friend Wii is japanese right?
    Just an idea, other people knows better than me about region conflicts.

    This will only work if he doesn't have 4.3...If he updated to 4.3U, putting in a game with 4.3J WILL NOT fix it.

    If it has HBC installed, just get MMM and use it to install the correct menu.

    If the wii doesn't have HBC and is not on 4.3, use bannerbomb to install HBC, then run MMM. If the wii is on 4.3 without HBC, I think you're stuck (hacking 4.3 requires a game).

    Game exploits will still work on a semi bricked 4.3 wii.

    The update may have trashes his modchip. Sometimes modchip users can not read discs after the update. The semi brick does not help things either. Hopefully he is not on 4.3, what game was the wii updated from?
    OP- are you loading retail disc that are in the region of the wii? Try disc in the region of the wii, and try disc that are in the region of the system menu. I think that the wii will only read disc in the region of the setting.txt on 4.2/4.3 wiis, I don't think the system menu is involved- I could be wrong.
    If you can't get any disc to read, you should try to run the firmware disc and config disc for your chip again. You may need to try to remove the chip if nothing else works for you.

    Load up Bannerbomb v2, if you get error 004 you have system menu 4.3 and you will need to use a disc exploit to fix it, unless you have the HBC or a Forwarder Channel installed.

    Was this wii softmoded or only the chip?
    What kind of chip do you have? I you can't get it to work, you may need to take it out to test disc loading without the chip.

    he definitely has around 2.X....he said he bought it about 5 years ago and he's not connected to the internet....so he could not have updated to 4.3....can bannerbomb work on versions below 3.X?he doesn't have any softmod...as for the chip i don't know and him either...he didn't even know that his wii was mooded when he bought it...

    You said he installed an update via disc. Discs aren't the Internet.

    Some discs have 4.3 on them. He could have updated to anything. Use savemiifrii to find out what it is.
    Sd icon on channel menu is 4.x
    No sd icon 3.x or less.

    Most games have an update in the 3.x range, 2.x update is less common. New games have 4.x.

    You need to install a disc update that has a higher version number than the currently installed system menu. First you need to get the wii to read NTSC-J discs. Find out what kind of chip is installed, then update the firmware and settings for that chip. Depending on the chip depends on how you do this. Hopefully that will get you loading discs again.

    Google the chip and find the firmware updates.
