The only solution would be to try and shake them out gently, though this may harm the components inside. The best option would be to either take it to a repair shop to get them removed or open it yourself, though doing it yourself will void the warranty and therefore isn't advisable.

SOURCE: something inside n64 game cartridge

There could be many things making that noise, my fellow N64 Gamer :)
It could be a few loose pieces of plastic that have broken off over the years, or it could be the chipset itself, which would be the reason why it's not working. By a special screwdriver off the internet (not more that 10 bucks) and open the cart to see what's making the noise.

As for the freezing up, if the chipset's moving around in there, it cold be freezing, if the chipset isn't moving, you could try cleaning the contacts on the bottom with a solution of alcohol and water.

SOURCE: ds game stuck inside wii

lol funny situation now maybe you should get either 2 very thin peices of wire or something sort of solid and fish it out or unscrew your console and if there are wires hanging from bits just dont touch them and keep unscrewing and remember were you took the things out from then when you get to the cd slot take the ds card out and that should work good luck

SOURCE: I think that my little brother put something inside wii console

The mechanism that accepts disk is faulty probably due to something being forced into slot. Have fixed many problems the same as this. If you need me to have a look let me know NO FIX, NO FEE returned free of charge

Foreign object i wii

U need to have a Y-shaped screw-driver to open your wii..they are traditionally called tri-wing or Y0. Once you have those, I suggest you take photos as you dissemble the console so that you put it back in the correct (reverse) order that you opened it..
Good Luck

My child stuck hard plastic coins in my wii console and there was a game inside already and now the game or the coins wont come out please help. how can i do it my self

yikes. The wii won't have enough power to eject it on its own. find a guide and take your wii apart pull out the drive, and take the drive itself apart. then pull the stuff out. Or call nintendo and shell out however much they want you to pay, your choice. Sorry, but thats pretty much all you can do. I would just buy a new one. chances are that if it is jammed in there that good, something broke inside the drive.

Coin stuck in wii, kids! please help.

How frustrating -- but very common unfortunately.

If you want to try and remove it yourself, you will need to open the Wii and open the drive. Most of the time, after you open the Wii, the coin will fall right out. Other times, you will also need to open the drive to fix it. There is a company here in the U.S. that will remove a coin pretty cheap, around $29.95 including shipping of the Wii back to you as long as nothing else is damaged:

Console comes on but games will not play

If it is somewhat new, you probably have something jamming the laser or drive tray. A lot of times of the flap doors have been broken off there hinges, plastic pieces will jam the laser. Does it take the games in at all? If so, you may just need to clean the lens even??? It is easy to do, the tools that you need to open the Wii is the "****" in this deal. "Pro's Kit SD-9313" has all you need and is pretty handy for any electronics. NOTE: If you have kids, they are usually the cause. Wii don't have many errors that aren't caused by user....or their children. You may have coins or something in ther as well.

My wii makes loud noises and when i turn the game on it says to eject disc turn off wii and look at the manuel. Sometimes the game will load but will shut off during and says disc can not be read. How can...

Sounds like something is stuck inside of your Wii's DVD Drive... someone may have stuck something in the slot? Coins? credit card? paper? Etc... sounds like this is preventing the disc from being read properly. Either this, or something inside of the drive has become broken.

The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Does not read the disc and makes a funny noise

If there is a bad noise coming from inside of your Wii when you are trying to load a game, either there is something stuck inside of the DVD drive or a part has fallen out of place. If you feel comfortable with it -- open up the Wii and check things out. Make sure the kids didn't put anything in the drive. If you're not comfortable with it, the following website does Wii repairs and sells the whole DVD drive unit for the Wii:

Wii is scratching discs and unable to load

If there are kids around check if something is inside it. If there is and it is rubbing on the disk it will slow the disk so the console won't read it. It does kind of look like a coin slot.
