Is it all discs or just certain ones? I had a problem with Brawl not working because its one of the few discs burned into two layers. But a lens cleaning kit worked for me. I ordered a special kit online that you have to push in and then pull it out with a tab that sticks out.

SOURCE: Wii "unable to read disc"

If Wii gives Unreadable disc, 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

SOURCE: my game won't work when i go to the disc channel on wii!

I managed to get my new games to work by turning the wii over and blowing through the vents underneath and 'HEY PRESTO!' the games worked. it was still a bit clunky so it looked as if it was a dirty lens after all. I have now purchased a wii lens cleaner from ebay (£9 inc p&p) it is a nintendo product so it should do the trick. hope this works for you i'm just glad I didn't have to pay for it to be fixed.

Perform the Wii "RESET".

My wii will not read any of my games

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.

My wii isnt working. It won't read any of my wii games. I just got a new game and I tried it and it wont play. I tried your troubleshooting and it didnt work. I turned it off, left it off for a bit,...

Hello there,

It wont read your discs simple because the lens could hardly read them because it is dirty and probably needs cleaning. Try running a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. Then try playing those discs again. If this does not work, then you might need to clean the lens manually by disassembling the wii, taking out the casing and cleaning the lens with a swab damped in an alcohol. Just gently wipe the swab on the lens surface in a circular manner and let it dry. Then put everything back and try playing those discs again.

By the way, this video might give you an idea how to disassemble the wii.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa. Merry Christmas.

Nintendo WII will not play discc

The first thing to do is to get a lens cleaning kit from your local game store that is made to clean the wii's laser lens. Also, you should get something to clean your disks while you are there if they show any signs of being dirty. These two things are the first places to start.

Game disc cannot be read on the wii

Make sure you haven't scratched the disc. even 1 scratch might put it out of operation. if not, grab a drive cleaner, they have little brushes on them, and may clean your wii lens.
