You can boil some water and submerge disc into water for about 5 to 10 sec.(please use tongs while doing this!!!!) Aslong as the scratches aren't to deep this will remove a coating that comes from factory but u can only do this one time only!! If it gets scratched agin then you are done!!!

hope this will help!!!

p.s. You can do this with any disk.

How to clean a wii disc


You can use rubbing alcohol. If the disk is scratched some video rental places will fix it for a fee. You can also get a disk cleaner/ scratch remover device. There are cheaper ones but it gives you an idea of what to look for.

Will not read disc


The disc may be too scratched up for the console. Try to clean the Disc with a microfiber cloth (or something that won't scratch it) and use a dvd lens cleaner on it to remove smudges.
If the disc is in good condition, then the laser on the Wii may be wearing out. That means that you will have to send the Wii to Nintendo to get it fixed or find someone who has Wii parts and knows how to take apart and repair a Wii.

Every time a game is put in the Wii says 'unable


You could try a 3rd party slot cleaner, or use the tried-and-true retro Nintendo console method of blowing into it.

How scratched is the disk? If it's really beat up, that might be the problem right there.

I had a similar problem before, and neither of my methods worked. I had to get it fixed by Nintendo themselves. Hopefully you don't have the worst-case scenario!

I have the same problem i try two diferent disc y nothing happen. same error . i dont think is my wii console.


Hi,

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk.

If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. I like to use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.

A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

Some older Wii units also have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. If all fails and still you Wii cant read any disk it only means that the Wii is malfunctioning.

And also you can try to use a different disk to check if your system will be able to read it. then try the Wii Fit Plus If after all that, your Wii still can't read the disc, it's probably just a bad disc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wii games won't play....


Call customer service. It seems that some Wii's are scratching dics. The warranty will cover it. Look on the readable side of the disc and see if it is leaving circular scatches. Mine is doing the same thing to certain games.

Removal of Scratches on TV Screen


you can try toothpaste. use on the scratched areas in a circular motion for around 5 minutes. This can reduce, and remove scratches from plastic, and even glass. Wipe of with a clean soft fabric or tissue paper lightly moistened.

Another solution is scratch-out. Which is used to repair spiderweb scratches in the clearcoat on automobiles. This is a polymer coating on cars. Your screen is also a polymer. follow the directions carefully, and don't get too aggressive with it. If it doesn't work, what you lost?

The poster above is obviously inexperienced with this type of thing.
