In the middle of a game or sometimes even at the start of a game, we get a black screen with an error message on it. We then remove the disc and turn everything off. That doesn't seem to help. It is doing this on all of our games. Then out of the blue, it will work for a time or two and then does this same thing again. We thought maybe the games were dirty or scratched but even cleaning them did not help the problem. Any suggestions?

It could be the game. Return it to the store and buy another copy and see if it gives you the same error message. Otherwise, your son probably tried installing apps on the Wii like Homebrew and "bricked" the Wii, which will make it never work again.
Maybe either the game is messed up or it is dirty. Try cleaning it and see what happens. If your game is messed up, then I dont know what to say, just try to bring it to a store and they could try to fix it. Hope that helps.
Nintendo is AWESOME about warranties. If you keep pushing the subject they will replace your unit free of charge. The drive mechanism is going out. It just so happens you haven't noticed it on any other game, it will happen with other games however.
I'm getting a similar error. I put in every wii game I own, and every single game had a black error message screen with white text informing me to remove the disk + turn off the power. However, for some odd reason my gamecube games work, as does Okami and Mario Kart Wii.
I will admit I've been incessantly resetting my wii since I'm recording a speedrun, and sometimes let the wii move + shake a lot, though this doesn't explain why 2/10 of my wii games are still working when all the discs are in similar condition.
I'm having the same issue. Doesn't matter what game disk is in, after a little while of playing, the screen goes black with the message that disk can not be read. Eject disk and power off, then power back on and re insert disk. No error code is given. I just bought this console yesterday and this error has happened probably 10 times already. Wanted to get online and see if this was a common wii problem or I just possible got a bad one.
Hi clean the wii laser with a cd cleaner and wash the disks with a spot of washing up liquid and luke warm water. Then dry completely before inserting disk into console. I had this problem on a couple of my sons games and this worked for us.
