    Wii Experts look inside! Laser gone? clicking like mad even on originals!

    hi guys

    modded a d2b wii with wiikey clone a while back for my cousin

    PAL wii, wiikey1, d2B

    was working fine untill yesterday

    the drive just clicks away now, i took the wiikey out and it still does it on originals

    put disk in, spins, clicks, then unable to read disk error

    i have got it so the game shows in the wii channel, but when i go to start the game, click, clickl, click like mad then an error has occured message appears.

    ive tried to clean the lens with a dry Q-tip to no avail.

    anyone know whats causing it? is the lens gone? can i just replace the lens unit or do i have to geta new drive aswell?

    any ideas? im not sure what else to try

    Thanks

    does sound like a dead drive, I would think you can just replace the laser itself and not the whole unit, sure ive seen them for sale on ebay or DX.

    hi mate, ive even opened the top case of the drive aswell to expose the laser, cant see any thing that shouldn't be there

    the laser tries to go, but does dies and until i hard reset the wii the disk doesn't even spin even when inserted

    sometimes those rubber grommits stop the disk from spinning if they get dislodged but that wouldnt cause the clicking. the clicking is always a sign of a knackered laser working too hard to read a disk.
