    hey, i finally got my d2prog and flashed my chip to the actual firmware
    1.3/2.6.

    the red light is still on. j to j means inching still. clk bridging, too.

    is my chip broken? but would he have let himself updated, if hes broken?

    do you have j to j and clk bridging at the same time ? If you have both it wont work, you need to do either j to j or just the clk bridging.

    I dont think the chip is broken if you have 2.3/1.6 firmware on it now it should work. I would suspect the clip.

    yes, it could be the clip. since i was yesterday able to loosen one piece of soldering off the chip/clip, ill give it another try by soldering all bridges anew.
    will write if thats the point. thank you!

    it think the problem was the iron. i bought a new one of which i think that it has a higher soldering temperature. also the solder itself was of no good quality. the new solder points were now made from 0.8 mm solder. i dont know the amount of lead in it, but here in germany it was called "radiolot".

    im new to this forum, while ive already read all posts that
    could help me with my problem.

    Ive got a PAL Wii (LEH169...) with a d2c chipset. ive bought
    a d2pro9 chip (blue label) and a wii-clip v4c. Ive soldered
    the chip onto the clip and clipped it onto the d2c chip.
    Then i got a constant red light with the wii reading originals
    (wii sports) and refusing backups (cant be read).

    i tried to solder the clk bridge, didnt help. i soldered j to j with
    the red cable coming with the clip. didnt help. clk bridged
    plus j bridged and vice versa didnt help, while i got the inching
    problem as long as j to j were wired together.

    then i tried to carefully remove the clip and replace it.
    nothing but red light. now ive discovered that one little
    transistor (the left one to solder point "c" on the wii pcb)
    has been removed and 2 little legs on the ic are bent down.

    the wii is still working but who knows how long?

    the first problem may be my own fault, as i was apparently
    not careful enough at removing the clip. the second one,
    hm, could it be a fake clip? but it has all signs of being an
    original plus a "genuine" sticker on the inner side.

    what should i do? as the solder on the j point, the
    missing transistor and the bent legs are clear signs of
    having opened my wii, i cant send it to nintendo.

    every help is aprecciated.
    sapfke,

    i'm in the same situation as you are and the more i read about the cases here, the more it got complicated and the more convinced i am that modding the wii is not for me. i didn't want to damage my wii any further so i got the quote from nintendo for service out of warranty and its only $60.00 within the USA. I think this is a fair price to pay for messing up my wii and after servicing it i will have another year of warranty again - good as new. now im trying to return the modchip and i hope the supplier - modchipcentral will grant the request.

    yes,

    i had also thought about that, but with a broken pcb
    i cant send it back.

    what i gained along this "project" ;-) was some soldering
    experience and the awareness that, if i will ever mod a
    wii (or some other console) again, i will order the most
    secure option (e.g. a presoldered wii-clip) and if theres
    no option, i would drop it.
