    Is it dead?

    Ordered Wii in 2007 from China w/mod chip installed. Language Jpn. My son accidentally updated online to 4.3j, I can still access the settings menu, but now when I insert any disk other than a gamecube disk I get a big ? (it will play gamecube disks though)....Is it dead?

    ewww... I just assumed that you meant any backup game. Are you saying that it wont recognize an original game either?

    Sounds like you have multiple problems including a drive problem. An update should have not prevented your Wii from reading an original game disk. That being said you might try cracking open your Wii and removing the chip just to see if that helps but I doubt it.

    You may need to run the update disk for the chip, update the firmware on it. Then run the config disk, or what ever you do to config the chip. 2007 is pretty old chip, do you know what it is? A wiikey or something?
