Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

I dropped my wii last week and tonight when my son and I tried to play with it, the system turns on, but is unable to read discs and it makes ticking noises. I used air to clean it, but no go. Any suggestions?

You could have jarred the CDROM that is inside of the WII. If you do not feel comfortable with taking the Wii apart yourself I would recommend that you send it to Nintendo to have them fix it. Other then that I would open the Wii check out the CDROM and make sure that it is not broken. The clicking that you are hearing, from my experience, the track that the laser uses to move on has either slid down to far or has come off track.

Unable to read disc


Hi,

I'm sorry you're experiencing this. This means your system's laser is weak and will need to be replaced. You can open your WII system and clean the laser with a cotton swab (only a drop of rubbing alcohol) and this may help it just a little, But a replacement would be best.

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.

My nintendo wii wont load discs??


Here's a page on the official Nintendo site that might help.
----

"Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards


  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures (click here).
  • 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.
