Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Disk Read Error

This has just recently started happening. You can play the game for about 10-15 minutes then it locks up and then a "disk read error" pops up and you have to reset the console. After this happens it won't read again until you turn the game off for at least an hour or so. When you turn it back on it will play for about 10-15 minutes and then the same thing. This is on any game you try and play. HELP!!!!!!

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.

Make sure the wii is not sitting on the carpet. Also make sure it's sitting up in it's silver stand on a flat surface. Make sure it is not close to any other electronic equipment that are generating heat. A wii can overheat and cause all kinds of funny things to happen.

    Like I said, sounds like an overheating problem. Take it out of the entertainment center. Also you might try blowing out the dust from the back and bottom vents. Not enough air is getting into the wii and being in an entertainment center will do it. 90% of all wii's that I see burn out are because they are in an entertainment center next to other equipment.

Ps3 disk read error


Hello,

This problem has something to do with your PS3's lens. It may have gone bad too. This happened to me too and I brought my PS3 to sony. The culprit was bad lens.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Console problem


I'm having the same issue. Doesn't matter what game disk is in, after a little while of playing, the screen goes black with the message that disk can not be read. Eject disk and power off, then power back on and re insert disk. No error code is given. I just bought this console yesterday and this error has happened probably 10 times already. Wanted to get online and see if this was a common wii problem or I just possible got a bad one.

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

Cannot read disk error


Heres what you need to do:
1.Call 1800-4myxbox see if your still under warranty.
2.If you like, I do not think its nessary, get them to replace your current 360.

What 95% of the time causes the 360 to damage teh disk is when your system is *VERTICAL* (up and down) or if you move the console while your playing it, or if the console got knocked over while a game is playing.

From now on put the console horizontal, this will prevent the scratching of games.

Games initial load before Play Starts receive error 'cannot read disk see instruction manual'


If this happens for only some games, you should try cleaning the discs with a disc cleaner. Otherwise, you could try asking around at stores like circuit city, radioshack, best buy, etc. for what you could use to clean the lens, the part that reads the disc in your gamecube. If that doesn't work, chances are that the lens is damaged and your only hope is to send it in for repairs or get a new gamecube (or Wii).

Error 80028f17


Error 80028f17 is a boot error and there is nothing you can really do about it, the disk is corrupted or burned (illegal copy) of the game. If it is legit, go back to the store and ask for another copy as it doesn't work.

PS2 Console disk read error


You are going to have to get the lens adjusted or get a new one. I would hope just to get it adjusted, because it will be cheaper. Send it to a repair shop and start having fun again. connie
