Can the Wii U MCM (CPU/GPU) of a Wii U be replaced?
I have a Wii U with the following problem:
I ordered a Wii U MCM chip (were still soldered on part of the motherboard) and did the following:
- removed heatspreader from MCM chip
- desoldered MCM chip
- reballed MCM chip
- desoldered current MCM chip from motherboard
- cleaned motherboard
- soldered back reballed MCM chip in right direction on motherboard
Here you can see a picture of the second hand Wii U MCM chip soldered on the motherboard :
Reassembled Wii U, but Wii U does not turn on.
The red led keeps red while everything is connected in the right way.
I now wonder if it is possible to replace the MCM chip, or that it is bound to the system ?
