So my mom called me earlier yesterday to let me know that the White Wii broke.
I went over there to see what`s wrong. Apparently, the wii is rejecting discs. When you try to put a disc in, you can`t! I looked further into this and it seems like there is a locking mechanism that prevents 2 CDs from going in at the same time. However, it`s malfunctioning and it`s locked despite the fact that there`s no CD inside.
I also noticed this weird whirring noise coming whenever I turn it on. So I investigated further and I find that there is an internal battery in the wii, however, I`m not quite sure what that is.
I can`t open it up any further because it uses a 3-pronged screw, and unfortunately 3-pronged screwdrivers are hard to come by. I have 5 sets of screwdrivers at home and none have a 3-prong one.
I know that if I take it to a shop to fix, it would cost me upwards from $50, whereas getting my mom a new wii would probably cost $145.
What to do?
