    Help with D2B and solderless D2pro - cut tracks ?

    Hi,

    I have a D2B Wii and I just bought a Solderless-D2pro-5-9-wire-Modchip from Techsick :

    Solderless D2pro 5/9 wire Modchip with SPI ( All versions including D2C2 ) & Screwdrivers *::*Modchip*::*Nintendo Wii*::*TechSick

    I plugged it in last night and the drive doesn't work anymore. There're no lights on the chip itself and the power light on the Wii is always green.

    The CLK has been soldered/connected when I bought it.

    I read in a tread that just by cutting the tracks across from the CLK will make it work ? I have also seen an article or something on the net a last week to do this but I've been looking for 2 days and I can't seem to find that web page anymore!

    Can someone confirm with me that a by cutting the tracks should make it work for a D2B machine ?

    thanks so much

    Cutting tracks on the clip or the Wii driveboard itself?

    Though I'm confused as to why you'd be cutting tracks in the first place. A picture would definitely help.

    that would be cutting the tracks on the clip labeled D,E,F,G,H ... which are next to the J CLK
    someone said they did that in one of the treads here and say it works.

    here's a pic that looks like my chip .. only that the CLK has been soldered together already.

    Cutting G and H makes no sense since they must be connected for the chip to function.

    Cutting C,D,E,F would make sense since they're not supposed to be used for your chipset.

    Nexi>>>> is correct.....c, d, e, f

    normally just use a little bit of electricians tape and cover the points on the board before soldering the rest of the points of the clip to the chip

    that way your can easily reuse it again later...say if you sent in your wii for repairs and got a different one back

    do you mean to cover the legs of the chip so that the clip doesn't come in contact with what's not needed ?

    how do I know which ones I need to cover up ?

    but that's a great idea to test it anyway.

    just solder points point J ,H,G, 3V, GND, bridge the CLK and tape over the rest before you solder the clip to the chip .done over 100 of these on dms ,d2a, d2b every one has worked.

    Covering them works fine assuming it's not presoldered. According to the site he bought from the clip comes presoldered to the chip so he'd have to either desolder the points or cut the traces.

    Cutting the traces isn't a big deal. If you need to use those points in the future you can either bridge the cut traces yourself or send it to a professional installer to do it for you.

    i would send them an email and ask them to solder a clip up for a d2b ,not into all this cutting traces , i solder every clip to the customers needs , i also pre-solder them in batches ,i just solder 25 for d2cs and 25 for d2bs etc then when people order i have the correct chip/clip in stock ready to send out configured for there drive with no cut traces.

    Just offering a solution based on the original post.

    didineedthis has the right idea though. That would be your best route.
