Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii makes squeaking/chirping noise

My Wii console started making a buzzing noise when I started playing the new animal crossing game.  Now if I play a game it makes the buzzing noise and goes into the squeaking/chirping noise, but will continue to play the game.  If it starts to squeak for a while, I'll get out of the game, put another game in and then it won't read the disk.  Also if I play the gamecube Metroid Prime game it will squak and then kick me out of it. (says the disk cannot be read).

This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo

If you want to repair it yourself you need a wii dvd drive. Any version works.

Hi, unfortunately my Wii fell onto the carpet last


i think that the laser inside the disk drive has skipped

lets say the laser moves from a to b (a is the start)(b is the end)

the laser might of jumped to b but the console still thinks it is at a and it keeps trying to move it towards b but it cant go any further because the laser tracks stop

you could open the console up and test the drive or replace the disk drive

Loaded game = loud buzzing


After removing the casing, all that need to be done was loosen (yes, loosen) a screw on the inner frame about a quarter turn. This allowed a little movement to the frame and stopped the buzzing.

Wii makes a buzzing sound when discs are running


The noise is the wii working extra hard to read the disk the lens might be dirty. Your wii might also have a bomb in it.............Just kidding. I would try cleaning the inside and if all is bad send it in to get fixed

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.


refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound


I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.

Wii will play gamecube games but not wii games


I heard something on youtube about that. It seems that the disc is hitting on the case so you would have to take it apart and fix it.
