D2Pro chip gone bad? Or is it the dvd drive?
My wii had a D2Pro chip (v1.7 firmware) and I have it softmodded as well. I have firmware version 4.1 installed. Worked great for at least 2 years now, until...
Yesterday I was playing grand slam tennis and while playing the game I got a 'can't read disc' error. I restarted the wii but after that it wouldn't read any game anymore, no originals and no backups.
I took the wii apart and cleaned the dvd lens. Made no difference.
Used some contact cleaner on some connectors and also on the wii chip. Made no difference.
I then took off the D2Pro chip (I have it connected with a Wii clip). Then I could start some games again but not all want to load. Perhaps it's not region free anymore now and it doesn't want to load NTSC games? Although I though with the softmod it is region free as well?
Is there any way to check if the D2Pro chip has gone bad? Or any way to check if the dvd drive has gone bad?
I'd like to keep using the modchip as games will load faster than with softmod.. so any way to check and know for sure where the fault is?
