    Solder splash...

    Ok dumbass here...Just finished the install and bang splashed some solder onto the board like a idiot. Now without any soldering background and no knowledge whatsoever, is there a way to fix this problem? When I boot the Wii up it goes as far as trying to load the disc and then fails. I know it has to do with the splashed solder...any help would be appreciated.

    Agreed w/ ej2095..I'm just lucky I was able to save it. My wife would've killed me cause I would've made her return it to futureshop.
