    Angry wii key(s) 2 install problems

    I have just wired in a yellow sticker wiikey 2 on a D2E drive.... The red LED lights up solid and the drive will do absolutely nothing. Will not accept disks are spin up anything. As soon as I remove the chip all goes as normal.

    I have 2 of this chips currently and used the other one (white label) with a wii-clip v1 and the foundmy.com v4c-a adaptor. I have used a meter to read that the adaptor and clip are soldered correct. But I still get the exact same result. At first I was thinking the chips didnt have flash on them....but seems unlikely that two of them from different suppliers would be like that. Here are a couple of pics of current install.

    try making all the wires shorter. Also double up the wire for the 3.3v and GnD.

    Place the chip right inside that hole in the center of the board. that should allow for you to make the wires a lot shorter.

    well as much as I didnt think this would make a difference at all. Im pleased to say I was wrong. Damn thing is working like a champ. I wonder what really did it, is this chip just power hungry or what. Thanks for the input. I odviously needed it.

    no problem. a lot of the chips need short wires when installing them. I know the wasabi chip even give a length requirement on its ground and power wires.

    I have never been a fan of any type of clip. They always fall off after a while. If you want a solid install then solder it. i used the clips for the first version xbox's and had so many problems. I would say stick to soldering its the best way to go.

    You got that right
    I try telling people...
    Dont waste your money on the WiiClip..
    but no.. they think im just trying to make money...
    it's funny when they contact me though..
    asking me to install it due to the fact it fell off...
    or it's not working properly anymore...
