Weirdest Problems I've Seen...any Help?
Hey guys, I've been a lurker on the forum for quite some time now,but my cousins Wiis have both gone AWOL,and can't seem to find the solution in the guides or google (I know the power of google :-P ). Anyways here goes:
The 1st one:
its modded with wiikey v1,and all the channels work fine but now when we put in a game it says,in the disc menu, "unable to read disc yadda yadda" (it doesnt turn off or tell me to turn it off). I assume its either a laser issue or something I can use some CO2 on and it.
The 2nd one...and this is the weird one:
the Wii is unmodded,its was won at a raffle,and when we opened it to play it turned on and the when we went to the mii channel there was a bunch of miis in it that had weird letters and symbols over them...and then the screen went black and said "an error has occurred,eject the disc,turn off the power etc.." except we didnt have a disc in it...so to combat the weird miis I formatted the wii..that got rid of them except its still the same issue,every channel we try to go into loads up for a few seconds then the black screen comes up. If I stay on the wii menu its fine, I can also browse through system settings. Now heres the second weird part...it wont take discs, I dont mean like it say "unable to read the disc" it physically wont take it, its like the loading mechanism doesnt work.(I mean the thing that pulls the disc in).
Any ideas? its not a different region model (I thought that when i saw the weird symbols) its US(CAN). Cant bring it back to the people that did the raffle. So just wondering if theres anyways to fix this if its a software issue...feel kind of dumb winning something only to send it to Nintendo to pay to have it fixed.
