Wii makes grinding noise, when disc is inserted, it immediately ejects it, accepts it back in, then ejects it onto the floor while making horrible grinding noises


There is either something inside of your Wii's DVD Drive blocking the insertion of the disc, or some of the gears inside of the DVD drive are damaged. Lots of times, one of the kids will stuff a penny, credit card, or some other foreign object inside of the Wii's disc slot. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Coins placed in the disc slot of the Wii.


I would not advise using the drive if there are any loose objects inside. Doing so would void your warranty, cause damage to the wii, and possibly even bodily injury. If the disc should come into contact with the loose object while spinning at high speed, the disc could shatter and the shards may actually break through the drive casing.

A loose object, if it catches something traveling at high velocity, can easily damage the casing and the wii remember

The only practical solution is to remove the drive from the wii and obtain a replacement. It would be prohibitive to try to fish out the loose object, since you might damage the internal components in doing so. you will need to call Nintendo ( 1-800-255-3700) and see if they can fix it or guide you through taking the disk drive out

I don't think they will slide out if you turn the MBP on edge. I would take it to the Apple store and be prepared for a nice bill. I hear kids also do this in the disk player in the car to get it fixed It won't be cheap, I 'm afraid,

At the very least the drive will need to be removed, I fear. It may actually have to be replaced. A few hundred dollars, I would guess.

Good luck

Disk slot blinks blue light on and off, even when not in use


this means you have an email/ message waiting for you. turn on your wii... when it comes to the home page look at the bottom right there should be a picture of a envelope and a number. click on that and take care of the messages. most of the time this only happens when you are connected to wifi and have updates waiting.

From the official Nintendo website:

"Object inserted into the Disc Slot If an object is inserted into the Disc Slot, it will automatically be pulled in, and it won't be possible to eject it. Do not attempt to open the Wii console or otherwise try to remove the object, as it may result in further damage to the console.
The Wii console will need to be repaired. Because this type of damage is not covered under Nintendo's warranty, there will be a charge for the repair. Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."

There is a sd card stuck where the cd should go. There is also a disk there. Do you know how to fix it?


If you can see the SD card, Get a toothpick and wrap Tape onto it then reverse the tape so that you have sticky on outside. See it you gcan retract it that way. You risk damaging the Disc eject system if you try to force the disc to eject by pressing the eject button more than 10 seconds. Once you get the SD card out you can do the 10 second eject button thing.
