Disc Channel not working, tried to clean up wii.
I have a launch wii with an original wiikey installed. About the time of NSMB last year, I switched over to the softmod stuff, and have gone through cioscorp, darkcorp, various loaders, manually installed ios, etc. I've also updated to 4.2, re-softmodded, etc. I've realized since then my disc channel no longer works for backups. When you click on disc channel (with a backup inserted), it would go to a black screen and you would have to force power off the Wii. I've followed instructions to uninstall Darkcorp, delete my custom channels and wad games through anytitle deleter, then use NUS Auto Downloader's wizard to reinstall 4.1u system menu and ALL IOSes for 4.1u. I've done so, then used Anytitle deleter to remove the cIOSes as well. 202, 222, 223, 249, 250, etc. I've removed Priiloader, but left Bootmii as boot2. At this point, it would appear to me I have a (pretty much) virgin 4.1u wii. My wiikey is still not working, although it no longer goes to a black screen, it just says it can't recognize the disc.
I'm not sure what could possibly be making the wiikey/disc channel not load discs anymore. Any recommendations? Has the wiikey physically broken at some point or have I just messed up the software on the wii? It boots originals fine, but not backups, nor the config or update discs. I am trying old backups that I know work OK with the wiikey.
