    Unhappy Unknown Mod and update on wii, wii semi bricked need help please

    I brought a wii of ebay years ago with 60 copied games, i have no idea what mods were used on it. It may have been soft modded but the channels deleted when it was brought. The only channels showing are the internet, mii, disc, 2 weather and 2 news channels. It could have been hard modded tho as it looks like it was taken apart and one screw wasn't put back in. When looking at the memory used there's one block that has just got a ? symbol on it. Its a europe console.

    Some of the games that came with it wouldn't load at the time or would play a small amount of the game then stop working, could this have been due to something being deleted that shouldn't have been? 3 games that come to mind was Rayman raving rabbids, resident evil chronicles, and paper mario.

    I've made a big mistake and semi bricked my wii after trying to play a copied version of Martian Panic and accepting the update to it. I dont know what update that was and the only way i've seen on the internet to check what update was installed is via using a gamecube controller and i havent got one.

    Now after that update some of the copied games that did play like mario and sonic at the Olympics will no longer load, it just says disc read error. An Sd symbol is in the menu screen now and it comes up with an error message when trying to go into the settings or the internet channel saying tried to access address Marc:EU/EU/EUG/INDEX01.HTML currently not available.

    I would really like to know how to update the wii so newer games can be played and the games that no longer play can be played again and how to unbrick it. Im completely new to this and as the wii still plays some games, i dont want to take any risks that could brick the wii up completely as this would extremely upset my kids. Theres so many updates out there i really dont know which one i should go for in my situation and what would work. Have i already made it that i cant install the homebrew channel and everything? If i use proper pal wii game and update again to try to remove the brick will this cause more problems with playing copied games?
    Can someone please tell me what needs doing to sort all these problems out please and in which order i need to do them???
    Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thank you

    I will move this one to the bricked section, so you will get help from more experienced members. You could also have a look at the guides there, there is a guide to fix a semi-bricked wii there.
