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

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

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My nintendo Wii says: "Error occured.


One, is the disc scratched?
Two, What Game?
Three, Try unplugging the power cord from the wall and Wii, and wait 10 minutes, and plug it back in. Should Work Like new.

Error message comes up when put each game in console that says "an error has occured, please eject the game disk and turn the power off."


Might try unplugging it completely, that will force it to reset, leaving it unplugged for 5 minutes, then plug it back in.

If it still gives the error on every disc, I would suggest calling Nintendo. My friend had to have his replaced, and it was pretty painless.

Wii Won't read disk


easy fix
call nintendo. If its only one particular disc thats having the error, its the game. If it is more than one game, its the system. Call them and talk about troubleshooting and see if there is anything you have not tried.

We are getting an error message everytime we load a disc


Hi,

Try the following options.

1:) Soft Reset:- Press the reset button on the Wii console For 2 seconds.
2:) Hard Reset. :- Unplug The Wii Console For 5-10 Minutes. As once unplugged it resets itself.
3:) use a CD/DVD Based laser head cleaning disk, to remove any dirt/dust from the laser unit.

Thankyou For Using Fixyas Free Forums.

This might help - it might not.
Bit, I think it is worth a try.

Try the Wii "RESET".
Here's how:
1. Unplug the Wii for at least 5 minutes.
2. Plug it back in.

Wii not reading discs


try cleaning the disks and make sure your inserting the disks with the wii on. you can also try resetting it there is a soft and hard way to reset it.
to soft reset your wii with the power on press and hold the reset button for 2 seconds( the second button from the top of the console)


The way to hard reset your Nintendo Wii is to UNPLUG it for 5 minutes.

if that doesn't cure your problem then i suggest taking it to a store and getting it fixed or if its still under warranty to return it to the manufacturer
