Wiikey Fusion - Red Light?

Post by Jexion » Wed Oct 17, 2012 12:42 pm

Ok guys, i finally got my wiikey fusion cable (thanks _nold_!)
I hooked everything up, checked the dip switches and i get a red light on wiikey fusion board as well as a warning on the screen telling me to power down and refer to my user manual.

Has anyone come across this problem before? and what should be my next course of action to fix it?

Red light usually means something is going wrong, i.e. not enough power or no power at certain pins, or the eject/switch. Double check all connections visually and with a multimeter I guess - also ask Nold if he'd tested it prior to sending (pretty sure he would have though).

Are you putting it the right way in the slot?
