Question about Nintendo Wii Console
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?
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

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