Question about Nintendo Wii Console

2 Answers

My Nintendo Wii isn't working properly, it always says "Unable to read game disc, refer to the Wii Operations Manual", so I've looked in the Wii Operations Manual and I've tried everything, and it still doesn't work. The blue light comes on and everything seems to be plugged in and working properly except when it comes to reading the game disc. Can you please help me?

If it's like that with all games it's almost certainly broken, call Nintendo if it's still under waranty.

Unable read disc


Your disc probably has a few scratches, which is making it hard for the Wii to read the disc. If that's not it, then it might be that the game is WAAAAY to out of date, but I don't think that's the case here.

Whenever I win something in Mario Kart Wii, It says " The game Disc could not be read. Refer to the Wii Operations Manual fo details." I've cleaned this disk thoroughly twice already and it...


Your Nintendo Wii can not properly read some portions of your Game Disk. The probable reasons are dirt on the lens or CD, or scratches on the CD. Try cleaning the CD using a soft cloth and clean the lens of your Wii console using a Lens Cleaner.

When inserting game disc it says "disc cannot be read. Refer to the wii operations manual."


  1. Refer to the Wii operations manual.
  2. Try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth. Wipe the disc in strait lines, not in a circle.
  3. Don't move the Wii around while there is a disc in it. Do this to prevent further damage.
  4. Try a different disc, preferably one that is much cleaner. If it doesn't work, there is an internal error with the Wii.

Every time a game is put in the Wii says 'unable


You could try a 3rd party slot cleaner, or use the tried-and-true retro Nintendo console method of blowing into it.

How scratched is the disk? If it's really beat up, that might be the problem right there.

I had a similar problem before, and neither of my methods worked. I had to get it fixed by Nintendo themselves. Hopefully you don't have the worst-case scenario!

Super smashbros disc does not work.


Ok,
as you may or may not be aware ssbb is a HUGE game.
So if your wii has ANY dust inside the disc reader at all then you cannot read the game.
Simply send off to nintendo for a free cleaning, and it should be fine.
Hope this helped!

My brand new console cannot read any disc.


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..

If you are not in the US, Canada, or Mexico, the game shouldn't work on your system.
