I managed to get my new games to work by turning the wii over and blowing through the vents underneath and 'HEY PRESTO!' the games worked. it was still a bit clunky so it looked as if it was a dirty lens after all. I have now purchased a wii lens cleaner from ebay (£9 inc p&p) it is a nintendo product so it should do the trick. hope this works for you i'm just glad I didn't have to pay for it to be fixed.
thanks
Paul

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

HI Denise.

Sometimes a Wii or Wii U is unable to read a disk, or the game will freeze or crash. And sometimes the console won't play any disk at all. Before you throw the disk in the trash or the console out the window, here are a couple of things that might get you back to playing games.13 Jul 2017

You might want to try a Loader instead of the Wii's disc channel. Are you playing original games or backups? You might have broke the Homebrew channel with the 4.0 upgrade. Check out this Wii homebrew set of tutorials to see if it'll help

Wii console states that it cannot read Super Smash Bros. Brawl


Will your game disc play on your neighbor's console? If it does not, then you might have a bad disc. Take your receipt and the game back to the store, they will exchange a game for the same title, with receipt.

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."
