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.

I accidentally inserted a disc the wrong way in our Wii console and cannot get the disc out now - the eject button won't work, what should I do?


Check if you can see a small hole on the media drive or optical drive. Use a paper clip to manually eject the disc.

Hope this can resolve your concern.

Wii remote buttons are sticky or stuck down

Try cleaning the buttons of the nintendo Wii Remote using the cleaning instructions below, being sure to follow the directions carefully.
    What you will need:
  • 1 clean toothbrush (no toothpaste on it)
  • 1 cup of warm tap water
  • 1 paper towel
  1. Remove the batteries from the Wii Remote.
  2. Get a clean toothbrush (no toothpaste) and a cup of warm tap water (not too hot). Do NOT pour or submerge the Wii Remote in any type of liquid.
  3. Slightly dip the toothbrush in the water (the toothbrush should not be dripping wet) and scrub the area of the Wii Remote around the buttons.
  4. Work the bristles down around the sides of the buttons.
  5. After cleaning the Wii Remote, dry it off with a paper towel.
  6. Let the Wii Remote air dry with the buttons facing down for at least a couple of hours.
  7. Test the Wii Remote for proper response.
  8. Repeat the steps if necessary.

If the buttons are still sticky after cleaning, the Wii Remote will need to be replaced. Our experience shows that this type of problem is usually caused by physical damage and not covered under Nintendo's warranty. You can purchase a replacement at retail stores that sell Nintendo products.

Repair game systems that have problems reading disks

The Trick is to disassemble the console and open the disk drive. DO NOT use alcohol to clean the lense as this will ruin it. to clean your laser lense use eyeglass gleaner and a eyeglass cloth. I do this whn I repaire xbox 360's and it works Great.

The fuses are VERY difficult to replace even if you have the part. you will need to be very comfortable working with electronics and very good at soldering to replace the tiny surface mount fuses. If you have someone with the skill here is a guide:

Wii disk will not stay in the console


Has anything been jammed inside the Nintendo Wii to cause this?

Has the Nintendo Wii been dropped?

There are usually 2 causes for this.

The Nintendo Wii disc drive could be damaged and/or something is jammed inside the drive causing the discs to automatically eject.

Also, your firmware could have malfunctioned, causing the drive not to work.

If you have experiencing opening the Nintendo Wii up, I would recommend you do so and look to see if anything is stuck inside.

if you're not comfortable doing so, I would recommend for you to send this system in for repair.

Grandson put a ds game into the Wi where the disc

Does this unit have a tiny hole, similar to those found on CD or DVD drives, which allows the insertion of a large paper clip?

By pushing a straightened out paper clip into this hole, you can push with a certain amount of force, which will then allow the drive to open, and from there, you might be able to remove the disk from the ds game.

Good Luck,

Hi my wii will not turn on but I have a game disc inside. How do I remove the disc without power? Is there a manual eject?

since the Wii has an optical drive, what you need to do is to insert a straightened paper clip into a tiny hole that is located on the front of the drive, typically right next to the eject switch. Once you’ve inserted the clip, the stuck CD should be easily ejected.

Is it possiable for a little paper sticker to reck the wii drive for it to be repaired

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.

My wii spits my disc out after i put it in system

I've found that this is usually caused by a problem with the small plastic gears that operate the loading mechanism. Sometimes they break, need to be realigned, or get stuck.

If one or more of them have a problem then the loading mechanism never allows the disc to drop onto the motor to spin. Then the Wii realizes that the disc did not load properly and kicks it back out.

But the only way to see is to take the Wii's cover off.

Wii is showing Disc could not be read error

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.
