    D2Sun v1.5 Flashing blue light but then what?

    Hey guys,


    I recently purchased a delightful chip of this kind presoldered. I installed it without problem ... or so i thought! All seemed ok the pins didnt become bent, i set the jumper accordingly. I use a d2c chip (PAL) so i had them all switched down, the wire i sticked accordingly with electrical tape. I tried switching it on and a blue light appeared. I assumed this was correct, i then closed it back up and burned 3 different discs all on 4x speed using nero. The problem is, when i turn on the wii the chip (or outside bi is all i can see) flashes blue, it continues to do this until i go to the wii disc on the menu, it is then the chip blue light dissapears, and i get the - Cannot read disc, refer to manual.
    Ive tried this now on 3 discs, and i cannot work out where i am going wrong, as i continually check how to install and see nothing wrong in what ive done.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    According to wii chip test my drive is 100% d2c.

    Many thanks for your help on this one.

    Yes its a wii clip. I checked the firmware its 3.1e which from what i read shouldnt be an issue.
    I burned another few discs continued to have the problem of it saying "disc unable to be read". Yet the blue light flashes as it is supposed to, and the wii still works when i insert original cds.
    I did try configure the dip switches to a d2c2 and that just stopped the drive dead, so i switched that back to d2c and now it works aain, but only on originals.
    Its so frustrating, as my wii has a chip in it, yet the chip doesnt work. So i had all the bad side of having to unscrew those darn screws, a wire stuck out the back but no joy.

    You could try re seating the Wii Clip, its a haneous task and you have to be really careful when removing the clip from the D2 chip. Take the clip off and check that non of the tiny connecting pins are bent, that would cause a failure. If you have no luck with that its a possibility that you have a faulty chip, let me know how you get on.

    I ordered some replacement wii screws at the weekend, im hoping they arrive tomorrow as i already reseated the chip once, but it didnt work. However i will try check again, at the very least i can remove it and consider taking it to a store and paying them to install it. I will be in touch once i get the screws as my current original wii screws are slowly falling apart/

    Hey skribble.

    I did as you said, sorry its taken so long to reply but i've been away down south and working.
    I reseated the chip, but i also noted i had been burning on dvd+r and so i tried on -r also. After doing both of these things, i booted up the wii and finally, much to my amazement (and on the edge of my seat tension!) it worked!

    So this is just a message to say a big thanks again for your help

    here what to do to prevent the clip form slipping out.
    stick the clip down with hotglue.
    That will prevent it from slipping.

    My pleasure, there are often a few little tweaks and tricks you can try out before abandoning all hope

    I know DVD+R`s can be a little tempramental so best stick with DVD-R

    Im happy its all sorted

    Not something i would recommend to be honest, hot glue and a chipped wii spells disaster if you ever need to send it off for repair or replace the chip, your more than likley to trash your main board and the wii when trying to remove the hot glued clip.

    Best practice would be to stick a bit of electrical tape over the base of the clip but to be honest if you seated the clip correctly it shouldnt move at all.
