SOURCE: cannot read game disc

do you put the disc in the wrong way? if you have your wii standing up, put the printed part facing the right. If you have your wii laying down with the power button going left, put the printing facing up.

SOURCE: Wii unable to read disc

One of two things has probably happened and is the case 9 out of 10 times. Your drive may have gone bad either due to a chip failure or a laser failure. It's also possible if the unit has gotten hot that the connection to the drive isn't making good connection anymore. This happens a lot. To fix it you would have to open the unit up. I don't recommend this if you have never worked on consoles or other electronics before. If the unit is under warrenty send it in for repair. Otherwise you would have to pay for the repairs. You can also sell the unit as broken on ebay and generally recover quite a lot of your money.

If you are good with repairs of electronics you may choose to open it up and do some troubleshooting. There are several places on the internet that outline how to open the wii and how to troubleshoot it's problems. If you decide to go this route you will void any warrenty you might have. However sometimes this is about the only solution people have without spending money for Nintendo to fix it.

Your Wii most likely has a problem with the system that reads the disks. If you system is under warranty, you should be able to get it replaced or fixed at no charge, since it is Nintendo's problem.

If Wii gives Unreadable disc, 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.

Wii console won't play discs. Error message occurs with all the discs. it tells me to take it out and consult my manual.


just on the off chance it may be
if the Wii is chipped hard modded not softmodded this can happen when attempting to read discs due to bad soldering.

other than that id say chances are the drive has had it
although it would be worth running a lens cleaner through it
