If you get anything foreign in the drive, you stand a chance of it getting caught-up in the mechanism and damaging the drive. If it's a sticker, that can be even worse. If you think you have something in your Wii, I would contact Nintendo to get it repaired.

Unable to read disc check wii operations manual


You can try cleaning your wii console. Take it apart (this will void your warranty howerver) and take some q-tips, rubbing alcahol, and an air compressor or can of compressed air. Dampen the q-tips with alcahol and GENTLY wipe off the laser lens. Next take your compressed air and blow the dust off EVERYTHING. If you don't want to void your warranty you can take a can of compressed (with the small plastic tube connected) and gently insert the stem into the CD drive, don't insert it too far, just a little bit and blow it out and hope you knocked the dust off the lens. If you can play other games you can take some toothpaste (yes, toothpaste) and rub some over the clear side of your disc (the part the laser reads) and then with a soft, lent free cloth or soft toilet paper, rub the toothpaste off in circular motion. Then lighty dampen you cloth or toilet paper and rub the rest of the toothpaste off starting from the center of the disc and wiping straight out to the edge.

I have personally done this on several CD games and Audio CD's and it's always worked for me. Hope this helps!

Tv screen says an error has occurred. Press the eject button and remove the wii console off and refer to the wii operations manual for help troubleshooting


This could be caused by several things usually the game disc is dirty or damaged. You can use a microfiber cloth(DO NOT USE A PAPER TOWEL!!!) with a little bit of alcohol to clean the disc. Even a fingerprint can cause this. I have dealt with it on my sons Wii more than once. If all the games are doing it that means something has gotting the laser lens inside the Wii dirty or damaged in that case I would contact Nintendo. If the game is damaged you can actually buy repair kits like Disc Dr or Scratch Dr.Right now I am using the Madcatz disc repair. Its avaiable at Gamestop. You might have to run it 10 times but they do work.

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:

My Wii gave me this message -- "an error has occurred. Press the eject button and remove the disc. Then turn the wii off and refer to the wii operations manual for troubleshooting." Any chance for a home...


it sounds like the disc it scratched to where it cant play if you have big scratches i've found that rubbing white toothpaste on the scratch and leaving it on there for 5 minutes then wipe it off this will fill the scratch if there is just little scratches these are most likely going to come off just take windex on a paper towel and rub it on the disc.

Wii will not even turn on. I have checked unhooked it and hooked it back up to a different tv and still have no power.


You need to ohmmeter the power supply. Find a friend or buy a multimeter to test the output power of the power supply. If is does not match what the sticker on the power supply says then it is faulty. If the power supply test good then you have a shorted Wii. The circuit board is fried and the whole system is a paper weight

I just bought a Wii last night and it is not reading "Wii Sports" it keeps saying an error has occured


It's one of two problems:

1. The Wii Sports disc is damaged. Did you try any other games? How does the back of the disc look? Do you know someone else with a Wii? Try another game [or try the Wii Sports disc on another Wii] to determine if it's the game, or the Wii. If it's the game disc -- simple, replace it. If it's the Wii:

2. The Wii laser/DVD drive could be messed up. This is usually a problem with either the laser inside of the Wii's drive, or some other issue going on inside of the DVD drive. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

2 discs stuck in console


WOW!!! I am so sorry that this happened. Nintendo products are really hard to open. If you cant wedge the game out with a small screwdriver, dont worry about the game, here are the directions on opening it. Just copy and paste to word so you can see the whole thing easily.

How to open your Wii Console Step by Step Instructions

To disassemble:
  1. Flip the device upside down and remove the small silver Phillips screw. Once out, remove the battery tray from the console.
  2. Next remove the rubber foot directly above this battery tray. Also remove the three square white stickers from the bottom of the Wii. The rubber foot and the sticker are covering hidden screws. Figure 3 provides a shot of where these screws are located. NOTE
    Hiding screws under stickers and rubber pads is a common method used by electronics manufactures to help increase the aesthetics of their devices, as well as prevent people from easily locating screws and taking apart their products.
  3. Unscrew the two Triwing screws and three Phillips screws from the bottom of the Wii.

Figure 3 - Bottom Screws


  1. Flip the Wii over onto its right side. Locate and remove the two rear rubber feet and the two rectangle stickers near the faceplate.
  2. Remove the two silver Triwing screws in the holes and remove the two black Triwing screws on the faceplate (Figure 4).
wiifig04.jpg
Figure 4 - Left side screw locations


  1. Flip the Wii upright and carefully remove the two socket covers. They come right out with a little wiggling.
  2. Remove the three black Phillips screws from the black plate (Figure 5). Note the one closest to the faceplate is the longest and will need to go back into that hole when putting the Wii back together.


wiifig05.jpg
Figure 5 - Top black plate screw locations


  1. With the screws removed, carefully pull off the faceplate of the front of the Wii. You will need to disconnect the red/black wire plug from the Wii to remove the faceplate completely. Figure 6 shows what is hiding under the faceplate.

  1. Remove black plate from memory/controller socket area.
Remove two silver Phillips and two silver Triwing screws from memory/controller socket area (Figure 7). wiifig07.jpg Figure 7 - Topside screw locations
Lay the Wii on left side (with the ATI and Nintendo logo facing you) and slowly work the right side cover of the console off the device.
This will take a little bit of force. If something appears to be stuck, double check to ensure you removed all the screws.
Locate and remove four screws holding DVD reader in place. Two are located in plain site in the middle of the unit. Two are located near the front of the Wii inside the DVD unit (Figure 8). wiifig08.jpg Figure 8 - The insides of the Wii
Slowly tilt the DVD player upward toward top of Wii. There are two wires that need to be disconnected before you can safely remove the DVD unit. One is a plug type of connector that only requires a little tug. The other is a circuit strip connector that requires you to lift the brown catch, which will release the pressure holding the strip in place (Figure 9). Do not break this!

anything that gets jammed in the drive can cause damage, if the wii has to be disassembled to repair it then this is probably correct.

Wii--Sticker stuck in cd slot


If you are technically inclined you can take apart the entire unit and remove the cd player portion. Once you remove the drive itself you need can carefully take it apart and remove the sticker. But keep in mind you'll void the entire warranty if you do this and you'll pretty much be flying solo because there isn't a lot of documentation on the internet yet about working on the WII. My recommendation would be to take the system into hollywood video and demand to speak with a manager, explain to them the issue and if they don't assist you call their corporate office. The damage is their fault, they need to take care of it.
