Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

One Wii won't read discs the other won't turn on!

We have 2 Wii's at our house. The older one (2 years old) doesn't read any discs, but will turn onto the Wii menu. The other (1 year old), just today, will turn on so that the green light comes on, but nothing else happens. They are both hooked up properly, the younger had been used just yesterday.

My wii will not read any of the disc


You can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. Also, some older Wii units have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit for that too.

If after cleaning its lens your Wii still can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

My 2 yr old put 2 disc inside we took them out but now it is not reading any disc. says error check manual we unplug to possibly reset and nothing keeps saying same thing.


Depending on how your 2 year old put the discs into the Wii it is quite possible that either the loading mechanism or the laser itself has been damaged. As there are a large number of things that could be wrong the only way to ensure the correct diagnosing is to take the Wii to your local authorized repair center and have them do a complete check of the system.
