    I am new here and I need help to figure out what to do with the wii.

    The wii was dropped or fell from about three feet to a tile floor; it will no longer eject the disk, it will longer receive the disk, and the disk no longer spins.


    Does any body have any ideas?

    I opened the console up to inspect for damage and to get the disk out. I could not find any physical damage to the moving parts of the loading/ ejecting mechanism. I am suspecting the DVD controller is bad. I used a variable power supply to see if the drive motor is working and it works. The mother board power LED does come on and changes color so I think that part of the console is OK.


    This is an old white Wii with a D2C v1 chip. I am pretty sure that it is toast at least the DVD controller part.


    I am looking for any ideas to get up and running with it again. Can I just get any wii DVD and use it? Or do I have to get the same type chip replacement? I would like to eventually Softmod with a USB hard Drive.


    Thank you for your input.

    Please be aware that newer Wii's Do not play back up disc from the disc drive. Your only option will be to load from the Usb port.Usb Loading is recommeded as you will not have any lag and if your lazy like me,you won't have to get up to change the Disc.

    Before you go out and spend money on a HDD for your Wii,make sure that it is on the Compatibility list.This will save you time and money.
