    After Install - Problems With Wiikey2

    Hey, I got the Wiikey2 chip installed (white sticker) in a G2C chipset Wii with 3.1U firmware.

    I actually left the disc in the drive when I did the installation, and when I put everything back together, the system powers on, but does not recognize the fact that there is a disc in the drive. (SSBB original copy).

    When I go to disk channel, it says, please insert a disk.

    When I try to eject when the system is on, there is no response.

    When I try to power the system on with the eject button, the blue LED flickers softly for a moment and then the system powers back off.

    Is this a known issue with the Wiikey2, or has anyone else experienced this?

    Have you hard wired your chip or are you using a clip?

    5 wire install. I didn't do points D, E, F, or G.

    So yeah, hard wired.

    The white stickered WiiKey 2 with G2C chipset is a nine wire install.
    The diagram PDF is here:

    It's G2C, not D2C; or are they the same thing?

    You need to solder all 9 points (including D,E,F,G).

    It turns out I had a cold solder somewhere because I redid B and C and everything works fine.

    Not to be ungrateful for you guys trying to help, but I'm not sure where you're coming from with the 9-wire install. It's a 5-wire install.

    Thumbs up

    The other thread I helped you in you said you had a d2e. Did you pick up a used wii or trade someone? Either way, I'm glad you got it working. It's always exciting when a project comes together, as small as it may be.

    You are reading the wrong part of the chip. I think you mean a G2C-D2B which would require a 5-wire. D2C and above requires 9 wire.
