Soft modded wii no longer reads discs
A friend has asked me for some advice on his wii but I haven't switched my wii on for about 2 1/2 years so I'm hoping somebody can help.
He has a soft modded wii that, untill recently, has played his backups (via disc) flawlessly. He has not changed any software/firmware on his wii but, all of a sudden, his wii has decided it doesn't want to play his backups. He doesn't understand about all the different loaders and things.
He has asked me if I can fit a mod chip for him but after looking around the forums I suspect that this would be pointless.
I'm thinking that his wii's laser has probably began to fail and is no longer strong enough to read his discs but I was wondering what you guys think?
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
