Re: Wii will not CDs anymore

Continuous clicking could be a few gear-related issues: -if the pinion gear is slipping against the rack for the disc-load mechanism, you can try to re-align the rack (hopefully it was just forced out of place and can be clicked back). i would suspect this if the noise is relatively quiet and very fast. -if something is jamming the load mechanism, like the rack is stuck, the pinion gear may be clicking over the teeth of the rack. i would suspect this if the noise is loud and slower. Either way, you'd probably need to open the console. )=.

Re: Wii will not CDs anymore

Clicking sound is normal, but do they stop or continue? my Wii make some clicking sound when loading up but then its stops. What I suggest is to see if your son damaged the discs and not the console, try to clean them or try them in a different console to see if they work. If they work in a different console that's means your son broke something when entering the 2 discs... and it need to be repaired. Here are some instructions of how to clean your discs: 1. Use a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean the disc from center towards the edges. do not use a circular motion % DO NOT use paper. 2. Make sure the game is dry, then re-insert it and see if the error occurs again. 3. If you make the game working after cleaning it but still have some problems that might mean that the disc is damage and you should try to replace it. Like I wrote before if cleaning doesn't work or it works in another console, you should repair it. P.S please use you user name from the beginning Eddy1

Hi there gilmarei

What to do when your Wii Has problems with reading disks and you have tried cleaning the disk.

This does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it just needs the laser to be readjusted.

Option 1

You can send this off to Nintendo if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the Wii to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

now a new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and you may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.

Option 4

What I recommend is a Wii Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

Hi so first off all you need to figure out if it is your wii or the actual cd not working.1. Start by trying to use another disc, if that disc doesn't work too and no others one then it is your console.2. If that does work then its the cd.3. If it the cd then check for scratches or wear and tear on the cd. This could cause the cd to not work, if thats the case you can look to buy scratch treatment like this one:
4. Also make sure you are putting it in right, if you put it in wrong the cd will not be detected.5. Just overall check the cd for wear and tear if there is none and you put it in right then the cd should work fine if your console is, but I have gotten a defective cd, if thats the case take it up with the maker of the game.
p.s I noticed you said cd, is it a cd or game because only games work on wii's, not cds

Wii console unable to read Game cds

shake the unit with no cd in if it rattles then there is a cd stuck, you could try taking apart but its not easy you have to take off hidden screw caps & unclip panels using an old credit card so as not to dent the plastic, plus there is allways one or two screws hiding !
hope this helps !

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

Multiple cds inserted into Wii at same time

In CD's there is an emergency lock which you can open to come out the tray.

On the CD shutter you can see a very small hole in which you can only insert niddle or thin wire. Try to find out this.

  1. Make Power Off
  2. Take a hard thin wire or long niddle.
  3. Insert the niddle in the hole.
  4. Push it gently, press a lillbit harder when it stricks any thing inside.

If you notice that the door is opening then push more hard till you can pull the shutter out with your finger.

And dad don't be angry............:)) lol

If you don't find the emergency lock opener then you have only way to remove cover...

Wii-error message

Hi clean the wii laser with a cd cleaner and wash the disks with a spot of washing up liquid and luke warm water. Then dry completely before inserting disk into console. I had this problem on a couple of my sons games and this worked for us.
