Microsoft Xbox have some common problem like red lights, E74 and Disc Read Error. Microsoft is providing extended warranty for red lights problem, Means you will have to spend some money in order to get this problem repaired from Microsoft also you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get your Xbox back. There are many reasons disc read error can occur in your Xbox like your disc might not be clean, laser might also be dirty and many more common problem. I would suggest you to first clean out the disc, you are using. If that don't solve the problem you can also take the help of DIY guide available at Internet. I think you have got good no. of options to get your Xbox repaired, Choice is yours.

Several discs purchased in the last year wont work now, its coming up on screen unable to read disc check wii operations manual for troubleshooting


Hi the first thing you need to do is go to a computer hardware store and buy a decent leanse cleaning cd then run this in your wii, doing this will remove any build up of dust and may solve your problem.
how ever if after doing the above you still have problems then this points to the fact that the laser is on its way out and either needs adjusting and or replacing if this is the case check if you have any warranty left as this fault is covered but check how much warranty you got some people get 12months others get longer so double check this before you have any work done as opening it up will void any warranty.

if you have no warranty then the best option would be to find a decent repair service as the wii is not easy to work with, some lasers can be adjusted and some cant so it all depends what drive you have in your wii, worse case you will need to get a whole new dvd drive fitted, how ever its not as easy as just fitting the new one as you need to get the software off the old drive and put this software on the new drive because if this is not done the wii wont work when the new drive is fitted.

shop around see what prices you can get as the work is not easy to do

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Wii unable to recognize the disc in Disc channel


This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!

The Wii will not read the disc


"Unable to read disc" error happened today for the first time on my Wii. I positioned it horizontally and tapped on the top while it was reading a disc and it started the game. This temporary solution might bring you immediate, but probably not long lasting satisfaction.

Unable to read wii discs


I had the same problem, I take it you have a modded wii(chipped), if you use a backup disc it is of a lower quality then original discs, the wii gets read errors without you noticing and tries to read those disc areas again sometimes suceeding and the gaming goes on, sometimes it fails, and a disc read error occurs. Over time the dvd assembly will take some damage it will loose it rigidity it once had and the wii stops reading discs. The problem gets worse if you have standing up, so first thing si to flip it down and try. Otherwise you (or someone you trust) will have to open the wii and adjust the lens sled so it wont flap as much up and down. Hope this helps..

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "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."
