My Flatmod stopped reading discs
I have a Flatmod rev1.0-A that stopped reading back-ups. The Wii works
fine with original copies with or without the Flatmod installed. Wii was
updated to 4.2U last year with no other modifications and worked fine until now.
Wii is NTSC, all back-ups are NTSC and I have never tried to play any of the more problematic dual layer games. Now, when I insert a back-up, the Flatmod blue light comes on, there is a beep and the laser clicks back and forth loudly until the disc ejects with an error. When I insert an original, the disc plays fine. The laser lens
is clean and the back-ups are burned on Sony -R discs at 2x speed. With no
disc in the drive I can click the eject button and the blue light comes
on(auto config mode), but when I insert a disc, the result is the same. I've burned about 100 discs and they all played fine since I installed this in July 2009.
I'm not sure if this is a drive issue, a laser issue or a Flatmod issue.
I could just buy a new laser, but have read that they don't always work. The place I ordered it from says it's the laser or the Flatmod, which is not really any help.
I can use a multimeter, so if there is anything I can test, let me know.
