My friends pal wii(LEH109*) isnt turning on after he updated it with super mario galaxy(pal), but it was working flawlessly before that playing backups and originals.

When I insert the power supply, the red light comes on, then as soon as I press the "on" button or on "eject" the green light comes on and then it immediately turns off.

I thought there was a short between the GND and the VOLTAGE point on the wiikey, so I opened the wii and removed the wiikey, but that didn?t make I difference. I then removed the dvd drive, but the wii still didn?t turn on. I know it?s not the power supply?s fault as I checked it on my wii.
I stripped the wii right down to the motherboard, removed the other end of the dvd ribbon cable and power supply cable, made sure there was nothing loose, then tried to turn it on again but same thing happened.

I would be grateful if anyone could give me any advice on what I should do, also do you think its worth getting a different chip
