SOURCE: my wii wont read 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.

SOURCE: wii can't play disk. An error has occurred.

Check if the Cd you have played was the original or the pirated ones as they may not play and show up errrors.
On the other hand do accordingly and if the fault shows up as said clean the head and try.
If not the possibility of the head being faulty needs a check

Hi there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK READ ERROR

The main cause is Hardware failure due to overheating or just simple wear & tear.

You will need to perform simple maintenance to your console

You can send your Wii to Nintendo to fix this. If your in warranty its free. If not the repair cost would be $150 and a wait time of 4-6 weeks

The other solution is what I did and the way more and more gamers are turning nowadays is a Good Wii Repair Guide that shows you how to fix the problem yourself. I have never had a problem with this one so far for over a year, well worth it. Its my most recommended guide online.

Well this is all the help and advice I have on this so good luck.

You can get back to gaming

Please come back and rate my post if you find it useful

Many thanks

SOURCE: my wii game says "

Your console isn't reading the game disc. You may need to clean the lens inside the disc player (you could try a can of air into the disc tray if you'r comfortable with that, i've done this before no big deal.)
OR it could be a mechanical issue. in which case you would likely want a professional to fix it
~best of luck!

Console makes clicking noise when disc is inserted and disc will not start? Screen says error has occurred and to consult manual. It happens with every disc I insert


I Had the same thing happen! It has to do with the retention clip. Here you go:

After you fix it, don't leave game disks overnight or in for extended periods of time as that pulls the clip down.

My Wii will not Play GC games. It tells me "Unable to read disk, Check operations manual". Game has no scratches and my Wii is about 3years old. Plays Wii games just fine so I don't know...


Check your serial number on your Wii. If it starts with KU, it can't read them. If it starts with LU, and it's ONLY GC games it won't play, then your system needs to be repaired.

Out of warranty repair cost is $85 plus tax for America.

None of the games will load,it says ''disk cannot be read,go to wii manual for troubleshooting''. i dont have a manual.


I have had that same problem with a game of mine. I believe that something may have gotten on the disk. Try to clean the disk and then try again. If it still won't work, you probably need to replace it.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo
