Thanks guys!!! Very much appreciated. I will try this tomorrow and report back on my findings. Hopefully its just an eject problem...I'm also wondering if maybe there could be some of the packaging in the drive and its confusing it...I read that a guy found a cardboard coin in his. Well I'll be sure to update you so hopefully this will help someone in the future. Thanks again guys.
I've found real coins in drives too. Removed it and perfectly working Wii.
Took off the front cover...didnt work.
found out that whomever gave it to the raffle opened it for some unknown reason,and didnt plug back in the dvd ribbon and power...plus some screws were missing...so problem solved, he would've gotten away with it too if it wasnt for those meddling kids and that pesky dog.
