    Unhappy Wii key works once then stops

    Ok I installed my new solderless wiikey 2(DMS) from modsupplier and I tested it with a backup of mario party 8 and it played fine. After I turned it off and on however, I noticed that the disk drive didnt spin on bootup and now wont spin at all. I removed the modchip and the drive works and plays original games fine. Then I put the modchip back in and it works good then it doesnt after I restart. Can someone help me please?

    Ok another thing I noticed that it works fine when playing with the Wii sideways(with the modchip in) but when I put it flat on the ground the drive just doesnt spin.

    Obviously its something with the clip there, I don't know why people just dont get them soldered in, More effective then these clip problems all the time........

    And most of all.... using the WiiClip will not void your warranty.

    =P yes it does, u opened your wii, desoldering, is the same, its not like nintendo looks at everything the highest level, but trust me poor rescrewing, forgeting them etc is the same as a soldered chip =P

    Depends on how careful you are. Flowing solder to multiple solder points on the optical drive is a dead giveaway when Nintendo looks at your unit under warranty. However, with a clip there is no trace of a mod once you pull it out. As long as you are careful when reassembling the unit - they would never know. I doubt Nintendo tests the torque on all of your screws. Just put everything back the way it was making sure each screw goes where it is supposed to go and you are golden.

    i think people OVER ESTAMATE people whom get paid minimal to fix them

    for starters, nintendo send them to another company to get them fixed, so people whom arnt even nintedo fix all wii's
    they can only reject you if they can 100%, prove you opened your wii, soldering errors isnt really enough, could have had a messed up drive etc
