    D2Ckey issue

    I am not sure if this is the right section to post. I got a D2CKey back early this year which has one red and one blue LED light.

    1. Power on: both red and blue light stayed for 2 seconds and goes off
    2. Original disc: the blue light flashes when the original disc is inserted.
    3. backup disc: no light is on and the disc cannot be read.

    I have D2C wii. I guess i am in bad luck. Does anybody know what might be the problem? Thanks.

    have you set the jumper for region and also make sure the region wires are secure.
    Did you install via flexpcb or by wire ? pic of install will help as well.

    Plug your serial number into www.wiidrives.com and see what you get. Its very possible that you have a D2C2 system. Just because you have 2 lines of text on the D2C chip doesn't mean that you have a D2C v1 system.

    If you have a multimeter with continuity tester, then I'd test the other points on the larger chip to see if points are properly connected. You'd be able to test all points with the exception for X and Z.

    You also look to have a piece of tape over that hole, that's bad. You need to remove that piece of tape from over the hole.

    Your photo is kind pf grainy, especially with regards to the picture of the D2CKey itself. Are both of the jumpers covered in a solderblob? Also, what's with that small blue wire in that area?

    The result from wiidrivers.com says:There is a 100% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).

    I used a multimeter to test all the points from d2ckey to the wii drive chip. they all seem to be fine. i have one blue and one red LEDs on the D2CKey. i guess it is the version 1 D2CKey.

    i will remove the tap on the flex cable.

    The blue cable is the region over ride. i only connected jp1 since i have north american version wii. Sorry for the photo problem.

    put your camera in macro mode to take the pic, especially of the ic, flex pcb. you may need to do some of the points again even if you say they checked out with a MM, because its possible its just a weak connection. I've had that before when initially starting to use the flexpcb and have seen that happen by quite a few with the d2ckey. The flex cables are really only good for professionals, and it takes us about 3-4 minutes to do the install with one using the multi-lead soldering method. Otherwise its best to stick with using wires via easy alternative method.

    My honest advise would be to get the 6 wire wiikey2 it requires no ic soldering at all and it will probably cost less in the long run than getting this sorted and fixed up.
