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

NO READ CHECK DISK ON UNIT. RESET HAS NOT WORKED


try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if that won't work! clean lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol genly, and allow several minutes to dry, if no result it is cheaper to replace the player than replacing the laser pickup assembly.

My pioneer avic d3 will not read the map softwear disc or any cd /dvd any ideas


I am having the same problem. Mine has been working fine for several years and then all of a sudden this summer it just decided that it won't read the NAV disk any longer or any other disk. I have tried cleaning with compressed air as suggested by someone and still no luck.

The dvd player side doesn't want to read all discs. Some it just flashes the loading and makes a clicking sounds, sometimes it loads up and freezes on dvds, it does this when i try to put in a cleaning...


The clicking is made by the laser head as it moves across the surface of the disk repeteadly trying to pick up the data signal and failing.
If it has used to work then it's clearly a dirt problem. If a cleaning disk has failed to work then the dust has gone all the way to the reading sensor. To clean it you will need top completely dismantle the unit access the optical mechanism, take off the cover and access the reading head - there blow with the can between the lens and the sensor then with a q-tip wipe the surface of the lens.

Power works; fan spins;light is on; promo screen works; disc won't read; disk won't spin


The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere

Gateway m-1625 CD/DVD-rom won't read any disc. Its spinning but no read. any thoughts?


you might try taking a q tip and some alcohol and clean the eye ( a little glass looking circle ) that reads the disk. Do not touch it with your fingers. Sometimes dust or dirt can get on it and it will not read the disk. This also works on cd players as well as dvd players.

None of the games will load,it says ''disk cannot be read,go to wii manual for troubleshooting''. i dont have a manual.


I have had that same problem with a game of mine. I believe that something may have gotten on the disk. Try to clean the disk and then try again. If it still won't work, you probably need to replace it.

My DVD player won't read, keeps saying disk error


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

My RCA RTD317 has problems recognizing most DVD movie disks. It will play some disks most of the time and all audio disks, so I figure the lasers are working. What could be the problem?


If you've tried cleaning the Laser with a Lens Cleaner Disk or directly with Lens Cleaner Fluid and a QTip without any improvement then the Laser is Failing.

It takes less power to read some DVDs than others and a lot less power to read an Audio CD. The Laser will continue to deteriorate until it won't play anything.
