    Unhappy Great... I think my wii's dead, unless YOU save the day?

    Since my ribbon clamp wont clamp the ribbon from the wii to the hardrive... the wii cannot eject a disk or insert so now I have wii sports in there stuck. Just because of one ribbon clamp thing is my wii gg? I used electric tape to tape the clamp and ribbon but no luck. Oh yea, the ribbon clamp broke off so now its loose. Even before it broke off it was still hard to clamp the ribbon down.

    the replacement ribbon connector are replacable...think I saw them on line for $10....

    or

    put the ribbon in and the clamp then adjust to working...then hot glue it down.... with just a little dab here and a little dab there in the corners.., double check to make sure the brown piece is where it's supposed to be.... the add more hot glue.


    not if all you want to do is take out your game... the easiest way is ...look at the top of the drive from the front (metal side)

    to turn the little white gear located on the top right edge (about 2/3 from front to back)

    turning outward towards the edge of the drive

    your disc should start moving out after about 20-30 turns

    The hot glue would work, or even a tiny tiny dab of crazy glue.
