Some games that the wii console won't play

There are some games that the wii console won't read. On the wii menu, it shows the game, but when I click on the game to start, it tries to read the disk but would go back to the main menu instead of starting the game. What will I do?

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........

My Wii will not Play GC games. It tells me "Unable to read disk, Check operations manual". Game has no scratches and my Wii is about 3years old. Plays Wii games just fine so I don't know...


Check your serial number on your Wii. If it starts with KU, it can't read them. If it starts with LU, and it's ONLY GC games it won't play, then your system needs to be repaired.

Out of warranty repair cost is $85 plus tax for America.

Wii disc read error


"Unable to Read the Disc" Error, or Disc Not Recognized (Will Not Play Game Discs) Situation:
  • The Wii console will not play game discs (disc is not recognized)
  • System displays either error message "Unable to read disc" or "Disc could not be read"

Important!
  • If this problem happens very infrequently, it is normal and does not indicate a problem. A Wii Lens Cleaning Kit can be purchased to help keep the lens clean and prevent the situation from worsening over time.

  • Wii Game Discs are region locked, and can only be played on hardware from the same country where the game was released. (A European game cannot be played on a North American system, for example.)


What To Do:
  • The Wii console is only compatible with Wii and GameCube discs. It is not compatible with DVDs or discs made for other home consoles. Verify that the disc you are inserting is compatible with the Wii system.

  • An error message may display if the disc is ejected during play. Return to the HOME Menu before changing discs.

  • Verify that the console is placed correctly.

    • If the Wii console is lying flat, the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

    • If the Wii console is standing vertically, the power button should be on the top and the console should be in the stand. Note: Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are intended to be placed vertically. (Learn more)

  • Verify that the disc is being inserted properly.

    • If the console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards.

    • If the console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.

  • Check the non-printed side of the game disc for dirt or severe damage (such as scratches or cracks).

    • If the disc is dirty, try cleaning the game disc. (How to)

    • If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced. Please click here for replacement options.

  • If the problem occurs with only one game disc, there may be a problem specific to that game. Click here to check our list of specific game issues.

  • Make sure only licensed accessories are being used. Unlicensed products do not undergo Nintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with our game systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games or accessories.

Wii system keeps showing erroe reading disc please turn off


This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.
If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.

Reads disc but won't play


this is an interesting problem, if its actually reading the games then the channel icon changes to the game's logo doesnt it, but you cant launch games, you tried restting the console obviously, thats about he only thing i could think to try personaly for this issue, i would advise calling nintendo's 1800 number, suprisingly they are actuallyvery helpfull and will normaly solve your issue, they replaced my power supply for free, and i wasnt on the phone very long either, try it and see what they say, it may be something they can walk you through fixxing on the phone, but i imagine it may mean replacing or repairing your console through nintendo. sorry I could provide any more info.
