Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii makes a horrible noise while loading or ejecting the disc

Well, lets be honest, we all know that the older Wii's eventually start making a buzzing noise... this buzzing noise isn't my worry. I've fixed that. (Let me tell you, bending those little triangles or stuffing something in between them over the disc? stupid friggin idea!! for the most part)

While finding a permanent fix for the buzzing, I created another problem.

My Wii runs as silent as it did new out of the box, if not even more silent than it was before, as the disc spinning at speed makes no noise.

Loading or Ejecting the disc, or turning the Wii off, however, is a WHOLE other story.

I must have bumped something or tweaked something wrongly, but while the disc is spinning up to speed (powering on, using the wii channel, etc), or coming down from speed (eject or off, or going into a non-disc using channel) it makes what I can only explain as an off pitch grinding. I'm thinking perhaps the braking or stabilizing mechanism is a bit "off" ... because I can also not play my Wii vertically at the time being, it seems the disc isn't firmly seated in vertical mode (also because when I turn it vertically, it decides to stop spinning, with said funny noise)

any ideas?

    how do you go about fixing that?

    I will certainly leave feedback if you can give a general idea how to unstick the magnet

My Wii Console just started making a noise when it is trying to read the disk. You can hear it spinning up very loud. I then tried to eject the disk and it made a very loud noise and wouldn't eject the...


Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.

Wii makes grinding noise, when disc is inserted, it immediately ejects it, accepts it back in, then ejects it onto the floor while making horrible grinding noises


There is either something inside of your Wii's DVD Drive blocking the insertion of the disc, or some of the gears inside of the DVD drive are damaged. Lots of times, one of the kids will stuff a penny, credit card, or some other foreign object inside of the Wii's disc slot. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Hi, unfortunately my Wii fell onto the carpet last


i think that the laser inside the disk drive has skipped

lets say the laser moves from a to b (a is the start)(b is the end)

the laser might of jumped to b but the console still thinks it is at a and it keeps trying to move it towards b but it cant go any further because the laser tracks stop

you could open the console up and test the drive or replace the disk drive

I think my son has put something in the wii as it was working fine but now when i insert a disc it makes a buzzing noise and ejects the disc???


you may need to get a trigram screwdriver to undo the funny screws in the wii and take a look, mine had a piece of paper in it and it sometimes stopped discs coming out.

Wii makes a buzzing sound when discs are running


The noise is the wii working extra hard to read the disk the lens might be dirty. Your wii might also have a bomb in it.............Just kidding. I would try cleaning the inside and if all is bad send it in to get fixed

Wii making strange noises and wont start game


Unplug anything you have connected via USB. Try that as it has been a constant issue for many first gen Wii's

Disc will not eject


your problem seems to be a failure in the Slot load Tray. it seems that the mechanism which assists in ejecting the Disc could require repairing/replacing.

i would suggest getting in touch with Nintendo customer services about this issue due to it being an internal hardware fault !

hope this helps ?!

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound


I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.

Wii will play gamecube games but not wii games


I heard something on youtube about that. It seems that the disc is hitting on the case so you would have to take it apart and fix it.
