    Buggered My Console

    Ok heres the story, first off, YES!!! I run a modchip!

    Now before i get a million posts telling me I should know better and serves me right and so on and so on, let me explain.

    I DO NOT RUN IT TO PLAY PIRATED GAMES

    I bought my Wii in the UK when they came out and last year, moved to China where my wife is from to live and work.
    When I went to thre store and bought a new game, I found I could not play it, after many visits back and fourth, changing discs and whatever, the store asked me to bring my console in. They looked at it and explained that because it was from the UK, the games sold here would not work - not happy.

    I then found out that if I installed a modchip that would allow me to run the games from other countries so bought a chip that clips on. Hey presto i was able to run the game I bought and have continued buying and running games from over here - problem solved.

    I have updated the system now I have an interent connection again, and everything has gone wrong.

    I can no longer run any games at all

    My data management is inaccessable, it crashes.

    I can go on the Internet channel and that works, but there must be another system update already as the forcast and shop say I need to update. However when I try it wont do it, it gives an error (32007), which after googling I have learned may me an issue with the router, I have done everything to the router I can think of, still doesnt work, but the internet channel works so it cant be a connection problem at my end anyway.

    My question is what the hell do I do now, I cannot seem to find any details on official repairers or Nintendo in China, and cannot send it to the UK, most of my post goes astray when I send overseas and the cost would mean it was cheaper ust to buy a new console here.

    Nintendo wont touch it if its chipped or modded best bet is to try and find a local repair shop or buy one locally

    Silence.... That's what I thought.
    Nintendo most certainly do not test and inspect every single console that comes in for repair around the globe, to do so would cost them too much money at the end of the day. Not only that but I have checked and a modded system will be repaired by Nintendo, but not under any warranty you may have had and they will not give you an additional warranty after the repair, as they often give you another year when it has been fixed.

    But Nintendo aside anyway, as I am not prepared to send it through the poor postal system in China. Does anyone know of any other means to restore the system.

    If you'd read my post fully you would then know why I am not prepared to send it anywhere.
