Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii doesn't work

We set up our brand new Wii, following all directions in the owner's manual. It won't take the disk when it's time to put one into the console. Then an error message occurs to eject the disk and turn off the system. We're concerned the brand new system is defective.

    Same problem. We set up following the manual. When we tried to load the disc, it tried, sputtered a little and then spit it out, took it back in, spit it out again and that was it. We tried to power off/on and reset the system but still no luck. I imagine there's a problem with the drive and will need to return/send in for repair. This sucks, since it was a present for the kids and now we can't have fun with it.

    same thing happen. Present for the kids on X-mas, no go. Called 1-800 line and Nintendo is sending us a so called "Facorty Guaranteed" replacement.

Change old internet code and put in a new one.


You do it the same way as you would when you put the code in the first time.

From the wii home menu...
Go to Wii Options in the lower left.
Click on Wii Settings to the right.
From this first list, click the right arrow.
Now on page 2, click on Internet.
Then click Connection Settings.
From this list, click Connection 1.
Then, click Wireless Connection...
and then click Search for an Access Point.
It will briefly search for any access points and when this screen comes up, click OK.
The following will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to...
Enter in the router password
click OK...
and OK again.
It will test the connection...
And if successful, the following will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii.
Sometimes the above screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and the following will appear...
Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24.
From the following list click WiiConnect24.
Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time.

Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from the 2nd page of Wii System Settings.
Click Wii System Update...
click yes...
it will test your connection for a few seconds...
an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii actually needs one)
and the following screen will appear. Click Wii Menu to finish.

I just bought my son a new game for our wii which we havent hooked up in a long time. when we enter the disc it pops up with unable to read disc


Be sure you are putting the disk in in the correct direction. I do that all the time where I put it in the wrong way. The labeled part of the disk should be to the outside of the wii.

Disk won't work


Did you put it in correctly? If the Wii is facing vertically, the side with print on it goes AWAY from the buttons. Anytime you put in a Wii disk in, the print side must go away from the buttons. Hope this helps :)

Wii game disc error


Your problem is that your wii doesn't support dual layered disks (like Brawl) Call 1-800-255-3700 for their tech support and tell them about your situation. It should be completely free (shipping and everything) If you are told different, call repeatedly until you find someone who will set you right

Brand new Wii - Will not read any of the disks


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
