Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

New disks won't work, wii doesn't read

We have the system up and running and the wii sports that comes with system is working fine. We then try to insert the 'big league' sports disk or the 'mario kart' disc and neither works (each bought in different stores so I'm thinking it's a setup issue). The mario kart disc allows kids to set up game, but then when hit the start button screen goes black and stays that way. The big league sports shows initial screen, but again, once the start button is hit, the screen goes black. We've tried to power off and start over as well as to clean discs. Very odd, what's going on here?

If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is totry 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

Your disk may be scratched or dirty, make sure it is inserted the correct way. try inserting another wii game and see if it can read that.

You can try to clean your disk using this guide, but if its scratched then it wont help.

This Rockster guitar from Psyclone Essentials, PSE6300B, is bad.


For use with RB (The Beatles version of RB, anyway), the instructions that come with the Rockster guitar are completely wrong. Unplug the wireless USB remote from the Wii. Insert a Wii remote into the guitar and use it as you would expect. Works just like it is supposed to.

Make sure the discs are clean, make sure you are putting them in the right way, other than that you might try some sort of lens cleaning disc.  Also, make sure your Wii has the latest firmware update.

It's possible that you are inserting the disk upside-down (Happens a lot when the Wii is in it's stand). You can find more information and an illustration here:

Game not recognized


Hi guest n mikec1993 i had this problem with a new console i brought for my son for xmas. Try cleaning the laser with a cd cleaning disk also wash the disks with luke warm water and a spot of washing up liquid then dry thouroughly before inserting disk into console for some unknown reason the laser dosen't read the disk even when it looks clean. Remember to wipe disk from the inside out lightly i found a old cotton tea cloth works best.
