Question about Nintendo Wii Console
The wii is just like any DVD player and can suffer from the lens over the laser getting obstructions or dust covering it, making it hard for the wii to read a DVD. It's a good idea to go to even a simple dollar store and buy a DVD cleaning kit. Because the Wii isn't manufactured for you to get easy access to the lens cover, it is important to buy a cleaning kit that has a small DVD with a brush attached to it. There is a solution that usually comes with this kit. Use just a few drops of the solution and then put it in the player. Eject it and do it again like two more times to assure that you cet all of the dust removed. There are mulitple places you can get a cleaning kit.
I have placed a link below if you don't want to leave your house to have amazon send you one.
Though any radio shack or walmart for that matter will have this in the electronics section.
IF this doesn't solve the problem, some times getting a can of condensed air and spraying it in your player will help.
THere is a possibility that the laser has gone out on your player or the internal power supply for it has died, but it is unlikely. Most of these gaming systems are all on one central power supply and wouldn't even power on if that were the case.
If the cleaning part works, you might want to think about where you are storing your wii and find a more dust free environment for it. (DO you smoke near it? If so, don't. SMoking is bad for you anyway, ummmka )Keep in mind there is a vent on the bottom of the wii that needs to be able to **** air in it and that can not be covered. ALthough it would reduce the amount of dust in it, it would also burn up the unit in a short time.
