    D2pro 9 wire install Blue light stays on, dvd drive doesnt move

    So basically i need some help with this, i have my wii sitting on my desk and when i power it on the blue led light stays on and there is no response from the disc drive

    obviously im worried, and i haven't seen anyone come across this problem; i hope to heck my dvd drive isnt broken

    i need help and advice please

    btw, i have a spi flash installed and i used this disgram http://www.d2pro.com/downloads/installD2pro5-9V1.4.pdf

    and yes the spi is attached appropriately

    also, i have a disc inside already, its SSB and the wii doesnt let me eject it out....

    BTW, the red light doesn't even blink but the wii turns on and evrything

    take the clk wire from the wii drive to the chip and press it on the oscillator and see if the drive will come to life

    also make sure that you use good thick wires for the Ground and voltage points. sometimes the chip needs extra power to make the drive functional.
    Thanks everyone for the great support.
    Hope to hear from you soon, cause i'm getting ready to retire from the modding scene.
    Gonna start a new profession.

    im sure this was my problem as i used 30 gauge wire to connect the chip

    ive already desoldered the thing, and the drive works; im going to try this tomorrow

    thanks for the advice!

    funnily enough it worked! I rewired the entire thing and used 26 gauge wire lying about, worked like a charm

    i hope some people find this thread so they know "30 gauge DOES NOT power a chip, 26 gauge is the way to go!"

    but i feel that the soldering to the ic legs aren't that well on (i can pull them off easily) though the modchip works perfectly i just hope that the wires dont come right off

    but whatever, it works! 10 big thumbs up for the solution; i wish i could rep you or something :P

    make sure you resolder that cold soldered wire cause that can put a massive strain on the chip and the drive.
    And don't worry....you will always hear from me on this magnificent forum as Dark Mod from the Caribbean island (Trinidad W.I) happy modding and gaming dude

    well re soldering it has me in a fix (meaning it worries me) it was hard enough soldering it on (i bridged 9 times); but if you really think its necessary i guess ill have to do it

    there are pretty small globs that hold them to the chip, is that enough? (i mean globs bigg as the ic legs)

    yes it is necessary if you want your wii drive to last long.....
    ok....let me give you some tips in soldering
    1. ALWAYS BREATHE!!!!DO NOT HOLD YOUR BREATH cause that tends to make your hands very shaky and will make you mess things up.
    2. Ensure that your soldering tip is always clean when you perform a new soldering job i.e. whenever you finish solder a point, clean your tip to prevent solder splashes, or cold solder joints.
    3. always use your solder paste (also known as flux) to prep and clean your points for soldering, so the soldering will flow and you will not overheating the components.
    4.Remember to always say a prayer first before performing any modification (very important lol)
    5.Don't use too much or too little solder cause remember the connections needs to be very neat so the signals can flow properly to the vital point.
    write down this little advice and everything will be ok and you will be able to mod your friend's wiis, playstations, xboxes, you name it.
    Thanks everyone for the great support.
