Basic but !
Are you inserting the disc righy way round?
Try putting in in opposite way and see if that works.

First try the wii laser cleaner, if that doesn't work and it is on all games the ribbon cable connecting the drive to the motherboard is not connecting correctly or is bad. Can also be the logic board in the drive. Both are available on Ebay. First check the Ribbon Cable to make sure it is connecting correctly on both ends. There are several Guides on taking the Wii apart.

If the wii game is console is flat the disc goes in with the words down. If the wii game console is standing up the words will read to the right.

Odds are, the laser has gone bad. Replacement ones can be found on Ebay for about $13. They require a special screw driver (tri-wing) and a soldering iron to change.

My disks are not playing. It states. An error has occurred. Press the eject button and remove the disc,then turn the wii off and refer to the operations manual. I have tried everything

i am having this same problem.... found this bit of info, hope it helps.

The most common reason for the Wii not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!

When i put in a game it says can not read disk look at operations manual

Use a cleaning disk to clean the laser and check the disk for scratches. Many game shops can re-surface disks and make them like new, just don't do it too often as re-surfacing removes a layer from the disk.

When I put a disc in my wii, it says cannot read disc see operations manual

Firstly, check wether all the disks are originals, not (illegal) copies. The Wii is protected and returns that error when a user tries to run a copied disk.
Secondly, try cleaning the disk and the tray it needs to go in.
If that doesn't help either, I think it's broken and you should get a new one. (Is your guarantee still active?)

Error occured on wii

First make sure the disc is clean. Then check for dirt or dust that could be stopping the lense from reading the disc.

Nintendo Wii Troubleshooting?

Wii can not tell you, but perhaps Nintendo can. I would call their customer service at 1-800-255-3700. Make sure you write down the ERROR code # (if the Wii gave one).
