Your WII is having trouble reading disks? Try using a dvd/cd ROM cleaner disk. Run the cleaning disk in the WII a couple of times and try inserting your game again. If it still does not read the disk, try cleaning the game disk itself with a lint free cloth and alcohol. make sure to dry the disk completely and never wipe in a circle. If this does not solve the issue, try playing the disk in another WII to figure out if the problem is isolated to the disk itself. If the disk plays in another WII, then contact the manufacturer and send the console in for repair.
If the disk is dirty, you may try to clean it. Rub a small amount of toothpaste gel onto the disk with your fingers, rinse with luke warm water, and dry thoroughly before putting back into your Wii.
Verify the problem isn't with the Wii itself. Make sure that the Wii you purchased will play a different game. (Wii Sports would work fine.)
If the game disk is a pirated or burned copy your Wii has to be modified to read those disks.
Wii noises are usually due to either a faulty fan or disk drive. Either one can cause the Wii to freeze up as a faulty fan can cause overheating and a faulty disk drive can slow disk reading down to where it freezes waiting for the data from the drive. It should be serviced or replaced.
Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.
This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/repair_options.jsp If you want to repair it yourself you need a wii dvd drive. Any version works.
Hi Sky606, have you tried cleaning the game disk? Have you tried using other game disks in the wii to make sure it's not just one disk that is causing the problem. Do you have a Nintendo Wii CD / DVD Discs and Lens Auto Cleaning System ? If you don't you might want to purchase one and see if that helps, because your wii lens might need cleaning ! If all of that fails,your wii may need repairs, the lens that reads the CD/DVD could need adjustment or replacement ! One other small note,I always have a small external fan blowing on my wii when in use so that the wii wont over heat. Heat kills electronics ! I Hope this advice helps.
