Taking apart wii console!

Hey! My two year old also stuck some coins in our wii and my husband started to take it apart and got to where he would need a "y" screwdriver to take off the face. He went to lowes to see if they had that kind of screw driver and they had never heard of it. Do you know where we can get that and is it possible for us to take it apart? I can hear the change in the console and it's working but it won't accept the disk all the way! please help!!

Two weeks ago I had a disc stuck in my console. I got it out and but it back in to see if everything was working fine and it was. I haven't used my Wii, since then and I didn't leave any disc in the console after getting the stuck one out. Today, I got a new game from GameFly, but when I went to put the disc in, it would only go half way in. I can't figure out what's going on with mine neither. You can copy and paste this link or maybe even click on it for some help from Nintendo.

I looked it up this morning after having problems with my system. You can put your system's serial number in and in 0-30 seconds, it will tell if your warranty is still good and what options are avaible to you to have it repaired or replaced. It says they'll do their best and what ever to fix your console but if it can't be repaired then they will replace the whole system. Only problem is you might lose some or all of your saved and downloaded data. It explains everything before you make a decision. My warranty was up and for a similar problem as yours (my kids might have stuck something in there I just don't know) it will only coast me $75.00, (USD) to have it repaired or replaced. You can setup everything on their website. Good luck!!!

Foreign object i wii

U need to have a Y-shaped screw-driver to open your wii..they are traditionally called tri-wing or Y0. Once you have those, I suggest you take photos as you dissemble the console so that you put it back in the correct (reverse) order that you opened it..
Good Luck

Something stuck inside wii where the games go

The only solution would be to try and shake them out gently, though this may harm the components inside. The best option would be to either take it to a repair shop to get them removed or open it yourself, though doing it yourself will void the warranty and therefore isn't advisable.

My child stuck hard plastic coins in my wii console and there was a game inside already and now the game or the coins wont come out please help. how can i do it my self

yikes. The wii won't have enough power to eject it on its own. find a guide and take your wii apart pull out the drive, and take the drive itself apart. then pull the stuff out. Or call nintendo and shell out however much they want you to pay, your choice. Sorry, but thats pretty much all you can do. I would just buy a new one. chances are that if it is jammed in there that good, something broke inside the drive.

Wii console unable to read Game cds

shake the unit with no cd in if it rattles then there is a cd stuck, you could try taking apart but its not easy you have to take off hidden screw caps & unclip panels using an old credit card so as not to dent the plastic, plus there is allways one or two screws hiding !
hope this helps !

Pennies stuck in WII

Hi khamillt It is possible to remove the pennies but keep in mind that you have to open the device. Your'e warrenty will be void !! If you technical knowledge is ok, then i recommend to view a youtube movie how to open the device. After that, you can look for the pennies (almost sure they will be in the DVD player).
