SOURCE: When we insert game discs in our wii, it will let

Check to see if there are any scratches on the disc. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. With some scratched discs, the data cannot be read and the game console may not even recognize the discs at all, giving you error messages etc. Best remedy for starters, is to try clean the discs and make sure there are no smudges or dirt marks left on the play-side of the discs. If there are any scratches on the discs, they will need repairing.

Most Game Discs, DVD's and CD's can be fixed quite easily back to "As Good As New Condition". Some home remedies or cheap repair kits may help with some light marks or very light scratches on some discs, but a professional disc repair service is usually required to repair any discs with anything more than very light scratches.

For further help on disc repairs, visit: Get Scratched Discs Repaired Back to "As Good As New Condition".

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on game disc repairs and related matters.

If you tried some home remedies and they have not worked, try sending the disc off for repair. Contact the site above for advice on repair and shipping.

Hope this Helps!!!

Nintendo WII will not play discc

The first thing to do is to get a lens cleaning kit from your local game store that is made to clean the wii's laser lens. Also, you should get something to clean your disks while you are there if they show any signs of being dirty. These two things are the first places to start.

Wii disk error

If the console try to read the disk, but you only get whirring and clicking noise, ending up with a no disk, and if this happens with all disks then it is a lens problem.

Try first cleaning the Wii lens with a cleaner disk, that is the easiest thing to do.

If that does not work, the Wii must be opened to access the lens pickup directly, and clean the lens with Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol, or replace the lens pickup.

If the cleaner disk does not fix it, better to contact Nintendo calling the number listed on the user manual to see if they can cover the repair, or replace the Wii, before disassembling the console.

Continuous error message

you can but the official wii lens cleaner kit although its not available in the usa sending your console to nintendo of america the will probably just clean the lens..this cleaning kit is made from nintendo and is only in japan but you can order it from there search wii lens cleaner kit. its about 20.00 us dollars with shipping.although the instructions are in japaneese you can go to youtube and search wii lens cleaner kit and look for one with a blond brittish guy and he show how to quite easy and all games will play after cleaning. that is if that is the problem...any rate if its not its a good idea to get it

Dirty lense

To clean the lens accessing directly to the lens pick up you will need to disassemble the Nintendo. This operation invole risk of further damage to your WII, particularly if you are not exeperienced in servicing electronics. My suggestion is the following.
First try cleaning it with a dvd cleaner and cleaning solution, this operation involves no risk.
Check also if you are covered by guaranty, and eventually contact Nintendo to have your WII serviced.
If you want to proceed in opening the Wii, here are videos showing disassemblage procedure.
My strong suggestion remains not opening the Nintendo by yourself, unless you have done this many times on different devices.

Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, send it in for repair. Two: Open up your Nintendo Wii Console and clean the lens of the disk drive with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Then put the console back together.
