介绍

If you have a drive which fails to spin the disc up or properly eject or "eat" discs, you may have one or two blown fuses on the drive PCB. This guide will show you how to test and replace those fuses!

  1. Use a metal spudger to remove the white plastic screw covers stuck to the lower case near the front of the Wii. Use a metal spudger to remove the white plastic screw covers stuck to the lower case near the front of the Wii.

Soldering jumpers on those fuses is easier said than done. The left-hand fuse follows the same trace all the way to the larger solder pad above, so don't worry about bridging. But it looks like there's a cap or diode along the trace of the right-hand fuse, so solder carefully! This worked great, and got my Wii drive back to spinning without spending $80 on a new drive.

If anyone could give specifications for the fuses needed, it would be very much appreciated... 0603 Fuses come in different amp ratings. I saw one person suggest elsewhere that after research he found that the ones used in this repair are 2A 0603 fuses, can anyone confirm this please before I get the wrong ones?

Thanks in advance,

I found a datasheet for littelfuse which labels the fuse as 2A. The datasheet can be found here

Hope this helps.

Another tip for after you know the fuse is blown instead of removing the fuse and jumpering it add a little solder on both sides of the fuse then use a lead from a resister heating up the solder and push the lead from a resistor into it then do the same for the other side.
