Hi I'm new in this forum. My wii simply doesn't turn on anymore. I have seen other threads however none of them applies to my case...
Since about a year ago, my wii wouldn't read many discs, so, since there is no FREE nintendo hardware support where I live in Mexico, I decided to open it up and clean up the reader. I had to do that several times until TODAY. I opened it up and since cleaning the reader no longer worked, I figured increasing the potentiometer would work.
It actually worked more or less fine, so I decided to open it up again to increase it just a bit further. BUT after increasing just tiny bit of the potentionmeter I decided to turn on the wii to check how good was it. However I accidentally presed the led instead of the power botton with my screwdriver and suddenly a little bit of smoke rose up and from there after it would no longer turn on. (Note that the wii front cover was off)
I don't know what to do, I'm panicked. I've had that wii since launch and it has ALL my save games. I wouldn't mind that much buying a new wii if i could only rescue my saves.
Does anybody hay any idea on what to do?
