    Both error messages come up and again the machine is making a weird noise, its over a year old so I imagine I'm out of warranty?

I've had the same problem. It was only happening once in a while, but now all of my games are doing it at some point. I get either "can not read disc" or "error, please eject disc turn off power and consult owner's manual". It is also making a buzzing or off balance sound like something may be loose inside. I bought special optical cloths to clean the discs before insertion and it did not help. I could not find a fix for it so, luckily, it is still under the extended warranty so, I sent it in. It has been about a week now and it says online that it is "completed". I assume that it will be shipping back to me soon. I'll repost if that did not fix it.

I have a Nintendo Wii and every time when i put in Wii sports resort it always says unable to read disk check Wii operation manual guide for help troubleshooting. but i lost my Wii operation manual guide...


Your disk may be scratched or dirty, make sure it is inserted the correct way. try inserting another wii game and see if it can read that.

You can try to clean your disk using this guide, but if its scratched then it wont help.

I stay in India and bought a wii console from Singapore . Recently bought Mariokart game ( with Wheel ) from Dubai duty free . The wii console cannot read the disc - what can i do to make it work ?


If the disk is dirty, you may try to clean it. Rub a small amount of toothpaste gel onto the disk with your fingers, rinse with luke warm water, and dry thoroughly before putting back into your Wii.
Verify the problem isn't with the Wii itself. Make sure that the Wii you purchased will play a different game. (Wii Sports would work fine.)
If the game disk is a pirated or burned copy your Wii has to be modified to read those disks.

My wii fit plus disc reads cant be read when inserted in to the wii help please can it be fixed


Hi lyned1,

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk.

If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. Use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.

A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

Some older Wii units also have trouble with dual layer discs, If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. And also you can try to use a different disk to check if your system will be able to read it. then try the Wii Fit Plus If after all that, your Wii still can't read the disc, it's probably just a bad disc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Disk won't work


Did you put it in correctly? If the Wii is facing vertically, the side with print on it goes AWAY from the buttons. Anytime you put in a Wii disk in, the print side must go away from the buttons. Hope this helps :)

My wii console wont take any disks.I try to put the disk in but it wont go in. The light lights up but nothing happens after that.Everything else works, like it will go to the menu screen but i cant play...


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.........

Noisy wii console


Hi Sky606, have you tried cleaning the game disk? Have you tried using other game disks in the wii to make sure it's not just one disk that is causing the problem. Do you have a Nintendo Wii CD / DVD Discs and Lens Auto Cleaning System ? If you don't you might want to purchase one and see if that helps, because your wii lens might need cleaning ! If all of that fails,your wii may need repairs, the lens that reads the CD/DVD could need adjustment or replacement ! One other small note,I always have a small external fan blowing on my wii when in use so that the wii wont over heat. Heat kills electronics ! I Hope this advice helps.
