andI formatted the Wii, but it still shows the homebrew when I boot it up. All of my menu's etc work fine, and I could even play the games I bought from the store (till I formatted).
contradict each other. It sounds more like a hardware issue if it's making a nose. I don't see how formating would cause a hardware problem. You can try cleaning the lens buy purchasing a lens cleaner but I'm not sure that would help. If it making clicking sound then I say it a problem with the drive and needs to be replaced. You can get replacement dives from eBay for around $60. They are not the hard to replace you just need a tri-wing screwdriver that you can also get from eBay. There are also plenty of guides out there including one or two here I believe that will show you how to dissemble your Wii.My only concern is, when a wii game is in the drive, I can hear a click. That led me to believe it was a hardware fault. But from the way Nintendo descibed it, they wouldn't fix it because I had homebrew on it.
