Wasabi with Wii-clip v5; drive won't spin
I soldered the wasabi to the wii-clip. when connected to the board and the extra wire soldered, the drive does not spin and the light on chip stays red(I have C chipset). Saw on the sight about connecting up a K-point to Reset. What are these points, they are not on the diagram. Also, if that does not work what are some other fixes? Soldering directly to the board.

Reason: grammer error
K point is the middle leg of the reset switch..
I have isntalled 3 wasabi's (I try to stay away from them, I dont buy them myself)..
but when people buy it & want me to install it.. then I'd do it.. but out of these 3..
Only 1 worked from 1st try.. the other 2.. I had to connect point K (it works well )
Try it out
do you stay away from wasabis or wasabi 2?

I havent yet tried Wasabi 2 ..maybe they are better than Wasabi 1.
But those 2 I installed they wouldnt work unless I had point K connected..
I dont know.. they are weird.. but it worked fine after point K was connected..
Only one Wasabi install worked fine without connecting point K..
All of those installs was on a D2C v1 drive..
Have you ever successfully installed the wasabi with the wiiclip?
I'm a little confused, could you post a photo of the wasabi with the k(reset) connected; don't know where the (middle leg of reset switch is located). I'm guessing its the k point on the wasabi chip connected to somewhere else.

you can see more details here
but here is the picture.. it's the middle leg of the reset switch
OK I'll give it a try. I'll report back if it works. Hope this wiiclip works; if not will try it without clip.
Awesome! yeah.. let us know how it went
Tried hooking up K to middle leg of reset switch. No Luck. Guess I should try it without the wiiclip
Is it possible to see an picture of your Wii-Clip soldered to the Wasabi ?
