Outdoor challenge mat won't connect

I have turned the wii off, connected the mat, turned the wii back on and inserted the disc. The disc reads, but as the kids go into the game it says it cannot detect the mat. Has anybody come across this ? and is there a fix for this ? Could the wii unit be broken or need resetting.

Thx.

SOURCE: kids stuck multiple discs in wii console. Anybody

Hi!

  1. Disconnect the drive.
  2. Open up the screws.
  3. You will now be able to see the white plastic mechanism on your right side and the wheel connected to the motor.
  4. Turn the wheel towards the back side of the drive while pushing the half inch square plastic piece towards the left.
  5. You will see the disc coming out while you are turning the wheel.
Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as FixYa if found useful.

Thanks

Its not working it says can not read disc


Try cleaning off the disc with a cotton swab and some alcohol. Let it dry before inserting the disc back into the Wii

You could also be getting that error because the disc is insert in the wrong direction. Try turning it around,

Wont read disc


Hello

Insert the disc into the console properly. If the Wii is positioned vertically you should face the label to the right. If you lay the Wii flat, make sure the label is facing up when you insert it.

Check the disc for residue. If you spot something on the disc that could interfere with its operation or potentially get inside the console, you need to clean it. Use a dry cloth and wipe the bottom of the disc from the inside out. Do not rub it in a circular motion. This could scratch the disc.

Read the label. Wii consoles in North America will play game discs made for use in North America only. On the bottom of the label you should see a note that the disc is manufactured for Wii consoles in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Latin America.

Turn the power of the Wii off. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall outlet and wait a couple of minutes. Plug the adapter back in and turn the console back on. Insert the disc again and see if it works.

The following website sells the drives and does installs:
store.richspsxparts.com


This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!
Hope this will help...

How do we connect the dance mat to the Wii console for DDR 3?


How do I connect the mat to the Wii™?





If your Wii™ is standing upright with the power button facing you at the top left, the top skinny side of the Wii™ that points up towards the ceiling contains the flaps. Lift the flap up, like how you would open a book, on the top of the console. You will find the ports under this flap. Plug your mat into the port that is the closest to where you would stick in the disc.
If your Wii™is laying flat horizontal, with the disc slot going left and right, and the power button facing you at the bottom left corner, the left skinny side of the Wii™that faces towards the left contains the flaps. Flip the flap down towards the left and you should see the 4 ports. Plug your dance mat into the port that is closest to the front of your Wii™ where you would stick in the disc.
Other steps to make sure you have tried:
Make sure that your Wii™ is turned off before plugging in your mat.
Also, make sure the connection is secure to your console.
Then with the game in the Wii™, turn on your console.
The mat should be recognized at that point.

Guitar Hero World Tour for Wii won't load


Solution: Wii Console needed to download a software upgrade from the web to run Guitar Hero World Tour. Internet connection in our home is via a Linksys ADSL wireless router. Entered Wii Setup menu (select Wii button on bottom left of screen). Changed Connection 1 from None to Wireless. Wii picked up the SSID broadcast from the router. Did a Test Connection which worked. Wii Console prompted me to 'download Wii System Upgrade from Web?'. Clicked OK. Download took approx 10 mins. On completion of download Guitar Hero World Tour loaded automatically. Note: I have read that the Wii uses wireless protocol 802.11b. Make sure your router has both 802.11g and 802.11b enabled or 802.11b only for the duration of the download. Best of luck.
