    4.3U semi bricked wii

    I can't tell if its semi/banner/low level/ or full bricked. What happened was that while I was in school my sister was apparantly trying to play games but the moron updated my wii to 4.3U after that I thought I'd follow a tutorial but I noticed the wii wont load any games.

    When I insert the discs I hear the beep followed by two beeps but I dont hear the disc moving, It doesnt make any noise. Now idk what to do and idk who to contact so they could fix my wii. Is there anyone here I could send it to so it could be fixed? Or is there anything else I could do to fix it?

    Is it possible to fix it with a channel installed to my SD card? I do have netflix in there ..

    I go to disc channel and insert disc then it says "unable to read the disc check the wii operations manual for help troubleshooting" but it gets on my nerves because the wii doesnt even try to read discs, I dont hear spinning . I dont get it why it does that all I had was Homebrew channel.

    It wont even play gamecube games.

    I am inserting originals

    if its updated to 4.3 and the disc drive doesnt work then I think your stuck.. might want to wait for another mod to verify that.

    damn do you think its fixable though? is there any way someone could fix it for me? I noticed the games come out the same way I put them in meaning the discs wont even spin... :'( i think the update deleted an ios or something

    You could replace the drive.. If the drive is in fact bad.

    Did you have bootmii installed?


    btw: an update or bad IOS would not cause the drive to NOT spin!
