Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wont read while in Horizontal position

My son was having difficulty with his Wii yesterday loading games. It was making an aweful sound when we inserted the games and it said that it was unable to read the discs. I turned the console to the vertical position and it could then run the games again and seemed to be normal. Wondering if anyone else has experienced the problem?

Wont load discs


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....

New Wii Game Unable to read disc


You may have to replace the laser in the wii so that it can read the disc, if this isn't thecase, then I don't have any other solutions for you.

My nintendo wii wont load discs??


Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.
----

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards


  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

Wii wont take in CD!


sounds like slot disc loading mechanism gearing is misaligned.. Slot drives are difficult to fiddle with, I suggest you try to get this repaired under warranty, (don't mention that you dropped it though, just say it stopped working)
