Wii wont accept disc

So my nephew knocked the Wii off the table and it fell to the ground. The Wii and game worked fine, but I couldnt get the game to eject. After trying to get the screws undone so I could have a look inside "warranty expired" Ive found that getting some of those screws out is nearly impossible. I got some of them undone, but I dont have the proper screwdriver to get the job done.

Now I attempted to pull the disc out with a pair of tweezers and this proved succesful but now a new problem arises. If I try to insert the disc back in the system will not **** it in. Ive nearly put the entire disc inside the system but it wont take it. I did notice that right on the lip where you insert the disc there are these 2 small rectangle type objects that look like they come up when you insert the disc. When trying to pull the disc out with tweezers these things were blocking my way so I had to take a knife and push them down. Even after the disc was out these things were still popped up so I even had to force the disc in.


I would like to not have to send this thing in, but I may have to end up doing so. Any suggestions or help please. Or even if anyone knows where I can get a screwdriver that would fit those screws would be nice. Or is this something unfixable?

Thanks!

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.

Go to the section on "screw types" to find the unique screw that was used to on the Wii. It's likely to be torx. T3, T4, T5, T6.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw

Then from there, you can go to an electronic store.

My wii fell then the game got stuck then the game wont eject i then got it out and it still wont work


when you put a game in your wii, it will lock into your wii with some clips. When your wii fell, the dvd came loose. so the eject button wont work anymore. What you can try, is try to pick the dvd out with a pincet. if that won't work, you should open up your wii and then remove the dvd.

My nephew dropped the wii now it says cannot read disc every time you put a game in, worked fine before this


when he dropped it this will most likely crack the sensor once its cracked it will not play any disc. if your warranty is still in affect call nintendo customer service they will help you on sending it off to them so they can fix it you can get there contact info from nintendo.com if you dont have a warranty i would recommend just buying a new system and find someone who will buy your wii to sell for spare parts.

sometime on consoles there is a small pin like hole next to the drive. a paper clip inserted into this and jiggled around might free the disc to open. works on computers might work for you. but if it fell looks like its f**ked

Wii unable to accept/eject disc making buzzing sound


  • When the disks were put in/taken out the little plastic clips in side the wii may have broken off. Might be stuck near the motor. Gently shake while rotating the the wii with all the cords off with no game inside. listen for anything loose. If your lucky the piece will go to another part of the wii. Best thing is to find someone to take it apart to check.

My nephew got a game cube disc stuck into our wii console...any suggestions on how to get it out??


I might try holding the deck in the right position (as it would sit on table) and tap it till i thought the disk was at the bottom for sure...then take a a icecream stick and inserting it at the top all the way in (so you can still grip it well) swing it 45 degrees downward and just try to roll it out....good luck....also if you thing you need to dissemble it to retrieve the small disk....search WII MOD CHIPS on youtube ...there are many vids on how to take it apart.

Wii Game Disc Off Of Amazon


Have you checked the disc for smudges? It sounds like you have a dirty disc. If that's not it, have you tried other discs in your Wii?
If the disc worked before, it should still work, unless:

A. Disc is dirty
B. Disc is scratched
C. Wii isn't playing any discs

Wii wont take in CD!


sounds like slot disc loading mechanism gearing is misaligned.. Slot drives are difficult to fiddle with, I suggest you try to get this repaired under warranty, (don't mention that you dropped it though, just say it stopped working)
