Question about Nintendo Wii Console
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)
Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, I repair 360's and have had this problem with them and there problem is that the magnet that holds the disk in place gets stuck and makes a grinding noise that sounds horrid. Please leave feedback as I am new and trying to build a great rep. Thank You.
