Havent used our wii in about 5 years, and hooked it up today and it is telling me that there is a error reading the disc and to read the manual for troubleshooting, but we no longer have the manual to refer to


May be dust on the laser lens due to not being used you need to open up the console then the drive and clean the laser with a cotton bud very lightly

Cannot read disc


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide...

Wii Cannot read discs


Made a video showing how I fixed this problem on my Wii. I show how to troubleshoot, take it apart, clean the laser and replace the DVD ROM if needed. Cleaning the laser didn't fix my problem but most of the time it will.
