Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Not Loading Disc

I got a new WII System and all ready had to send it in for repairs. It came
back with the same problem. When I load the disk it shows the first screen
with the other channels, but when I click to load the game it goes to second
screen where I would click to start the game. It looks like its loading the
game but goes right back the main menu. I don't get any disk error it just
won't load. Nintendo said on the repair ticket that they couldn't duplicate
the same problem. Any advice? I really want to get this running since my husband bought it for me.

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

Most games will not load on our Wii. Only one will load -- Wii Music. We just bought a new disc (so no damage issues) and even it will not load. Is there a cleaner disk for the wii system? Would that help?...

I do NOT recommend using any cleaner other than the 1st party Wii Lens Cleaning Kit. The Wii Lens Cleaning Kit can either be purchased online, or at your local game store. Though a lens cleaning kit may help, chances are that your disc reader is damaged or broken. If a disc cleaning kit will not work and the problem persists, I recommend calling Nintendo Customer Service and setting up a repair. You can send in your Wii and have them repair it for a price (for free if you still have your warranty).
Thanks for using FixYa!

My son wii keeps ejecting the games every time he insert the game it spits it back out

Unfortunately this is a hardware problem, aka an issue with the Wii's inner components. In the disc loading tray there is a photo cell sensor that reads when a disc is present within the Wii. This sensor is most likely off center and giving false readings, therefore it is rejecting the discs you load into it. Another issue could be that the disc loader's ribbon cable is loose/not correctly attached to the rest of the Wii.

You will have to get the Wii fixed by Nintendo or you will need to buy a new Wii system. Hopefully you still have a Nintendo warranty for the system. Registering your Wii system on can add an additional 90 days to your Wii's warranty.

Ps3 not loading disk

Here is how you can fix the not loading/reading disk on PS3.The problem is with the sensors under the Blu-ray drive that are not making contact with the base of the system. So, the first thing to do is open the PS3. Then, you slightly put pressure over the area where the disc loads and after this your disc should begin recognizing all discs inserted and will load a disc without any problems. This should fix your problem. If this does not fix your problem, you will need to send your PS3 to Sony to have it repaired by specialists.

It sounds like you will need a new laser or a wii drive motor.

You will have to send this system in for repair.

My wii spits my disc out after i put it in system

I've found that this is usually caused by a problem with the small plastic gears that operate the loading mechanism. Sometimes they break, need to be realigned, or get stuck.

If one or more of them have a problem then the loading mechanism never allows the disc to drop onto the motor to spin. Then the Wii realizes that the disc did not load properly and kicks it back out.

But the only way to see is to take the Wii's cover off.

You probably have a dfective disk. I would try to replace it.
If you know anyone with at wii fit, ask them if you could borrow their disk just to try if it works on your system.\
If it does, then your disk is defective.

Good luck!
