    Question Can't get Wii to boot after by relocation.

    If you disconnect the bluetooth module does it boot? Kinda hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like your putting 3.3v straight to pin 12 which is the sync pin. Normally you'd want a tactile button wired to 3.3v and the sync pin so the pins only connect when you push the button. I don't...

    Discussion What kind of electronics experience did you have before making a portable?

    A good way to learn more about portables in general is to just read the various worklogs / guides here. Another way that I learned more about electronics / portables was with Raspberry Pi handhelds. These are good because they are usually alot simpler then a Wii / PS2 portable to make, and on...

    Solved Joycon Analog Sticks Not Working on Gamecube Controller

    So I ended up getting it to work, I removed and re-soldered everything on the board, and soldered the resistors all facing the same direction. I guess some of my solder joints were bad, or something was shorting that wasn't supposed to be. Thanks for the help!

    Solved Joycon Analog Sticks Not Working on Gamecube Controller

    Not sure I should be creating a new thread if I have a new issue, but I'm hoping someone can help me troubleshoot my GC+. Here are some photos. I assembled it myself and as far as I can tell, everything looks fine. When I hook it up to the Wii, it acts as if the left trigger is being held and...

    Solved Joycon Analog Sticks Not Working on Gamecube Controller

    So flipping my wiring like you suggested seems to have fixed it, now the "sensitivity" if you want to call it that is slow, but I have the parts for a GC+ coming soon so that should fix that issue. Thanks!

    Solved Trimmed Wii Black Screen

    I might be completely wrong, but assuming that this is your 3.3v wire shouldn't it be soldered to either one of the 2 pins to the left of where you have it or to the bottom pad?

    Solved PICkit 3 Low Voltage Configuration Help

    Wasn't really sure where to post this, so hopefully this is fine. My current issue is that I am trying to program a GC+ and whenever I connect the PICkit 3 to the PCB, MPLAB X IPE gives me this message: I have the device selected as PIC18F25K22 and my tool selected. Under the power settings I...

    Question Installing BootMii without SD Card?

    Is it possible to install BootMii as an ios without an SD card? I can't get Wii games to load on my trimmed Wii and it seems that BootMii is not installed. I've tried launching the HackMii installer but it just freezes at the loading part. Im assuming it does this because the SD card slot is...

    5" screen power conversion

    What are the names on each of the chips? If you unplug the ribbon cable and remove the driver board under it it may say what the pads are for.

    Do you have the exact same driver board as the one in the picture? Or can you upload a picture of what yours looks like?

    Solved No video on Wii

    I would recommend trimming the Wii and then hook up your regs. Have you also tried hooking up a reset button?

    Solved No video on Wii

    Pictures would really help here. And by no video do you mean that you get no signal or does your screen turn black? I would wire up a reset button and see if you can boot into Priiloader.

    Solved Help wiring 940nm LEDs for sensor bar

    I tried a 170ohm resistor and it brought the voltage down the about 1.1v, but the led still didn't light up when I looked at it with my phone's camera. Is there anything else I can try?

    Question Wii won't turn off after being given too many volts

    If there is no continuity on the fuse then its likely blown. What I would suggest is removing the fuse then you can bridge the 2 solder pads. This will confirm if the fuse was the issue. I would also recommend checking to make sure your power supply is outputing 12v and its not spiking or...
