What's your problem?the wiw has trouble reading the disk


Your WII is having trouble reading disks? Try using a dvd/cd ROM cleaner disk. Run the cleaning disk in the WII a couple of times and try inserting your game again. If it still does not read the disk, try cleaning the game disk itself with a lint free cloth and alcohol. make sure to dry the disk completely and never wipe in a circle. If this does not solve the issue, try playing the disk in another WII to figure out if the problem is isolated to the disk itself. If the disk plays in another WII, then contact the manufacturer and send the console in for repair.

How do i fix a crack in the moddle of my disk


Well-- You don't.

Even though the disk may still function, as it spins in the console, you run the risk of having the disk fragment. This could damage your console's internal components.

If the game is already burned to your hard drive, the disk won't spin, but using a damaged disk is still risky.

I'd recommend buying a new disk.

Hope this helped,

My playstation powers up normally. It runs normally but will not read any games. When I insert the disk I hear no noise like the disk isn't even spinning. Is this the laser or something else?


the playstation 3 tends to have quieter disc spins have you tried taking all the cords out of the back and putting them back in (sometimes it seems even with power cord out will draw some power from TV so ALL cords) and check using multiple games

My wii tries to read a disk and it ends up turning the screen black and says to take out the disk and shut down the power and read the manual.


Hi there moecis

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

Cannot detect inserted disks


I would try the simple things first. Ejecting the disk and putting it back in, Turning off the power for at least 1 minute then turn it back on, Check all Power cables. If this does not work i hope someone else can help with it internally.

Wii disk won't spin


Hi, this will have to be repaired by Nintendo unfortunately. there is a relay switch that initiates the spinning of the disc when it is inserted all the way. this switch also has a sensor telling it to initiate the play/run option. all of this is automated and if either one of these important devices are malfunctioning, it will cause the Action's you are witnessing.
