Wii USB port 0 not working, flip connections with port 1?
It seems my WII USB port 0 (the lower one) stopped working. Unfortunately i can't understand if it's a mechanical problem (burnt connector cable) or a USB controller chip problem.
Anyway, since Wii's USB ports are used for different purposes, and i don't need the port 1 while i really need port 0, I thought to somehow flip the USB connections.
In this way the Wii will recognize as port 0 the upper port and not the lower.
Do you think is possible to make such a fix?
In no step-by-step/teardown guide here i found about the opening of the USB connectors box. Has anybody of you tried that? What problems could i incurr in?
Any idea/hint is welcome
opening and soldering anything in the usb connectors box??
don't get me wrong!!
but since you're asking this question - i would highly recommend that you don't touch the usb connectors box and/or the mainboard.
i've seen many bad soldering jobs and most of them where the results of questions like this one. if you knew how to work on those parts properly - you would'nt ask that question!
the safest way is to give it a professional wii service/modding company, but since the part looks like a standard computer part, maybe there are others too that would do the job.
but to answer the question - sure - someone who knows how to do those things could do the port switch.
