    Ca Getting "Error has occured" while playing games.

    I am new to the mod wii thing. I had a shop mod the wii for me. It was working fine but now it keeps giving me "An error has occured. Eject the disk, shut off power and read wii manual" while playing any game. Different length of time every time it seems. It happens on original games and burned ones. I have no idea what mod chip is in the wii.
    So, first question, is there a way to tell what mod chip was installed?
    Second question, is there a fix for this such as a update to the wii that I need to do?
    Third question, how do I know what version of firmware I have on the wii right now?
    Last question, can I update the wii regardless of type of mod chip I have by using the web?
    I know is a lot of questions for my first post but I don't know what I can or can't do. Any help would be great. The kids hate me now because I screwed up the wii so someone help me get back in their good books, please!

    Thanks.

    Go back to the shop and ask them what chip they installed, they done it so they will be able to help you there.

    To find your System Menu, go to Wii Options, Wii setiings and in the top right of the screen is your System Menu.

    Thanks for the direction. I will go back to the store and ask which mod they used. The version my wii is running on is 3.4u. Can I update that to a higher version using the web and not screw up the mod chip?

    You can update but not through the Ninty though!!!!!

    Read this guide very carefully before you do anything.

    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    As you can see you can update your 3.4 system if you want to use preloader.

    Good luck with the shop!

    The disc read error sounds like it could be the laser's life is coming to an end. I have a Wii that would only read gamecube discs and errors with every Wii game. Swapped out the laser and it is in perfect working order now.

    Yes I cleaned the lens first.
    No life out of it. It was toast.
    It happened over time and I never use +R media for Wii.

    Thanks for the laser idea, never thought of that. I will give it a cleaning to see if that helps. Don't matter about the disk type as it happens with bought games so the drive maybe the problem. Was hoping to update the Wii to fix the problem but that looks like a dead end. I will try some stuff, write back with results later.
