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.

Wont read the disc. says to turn off and see manual. i did. i unpluged the back for 5 min like it said and it still wont work. also makes a loud noise when disc is inserted.

This is caused by a dirty laser or bad laser. try cleaning it with a q-tip and alcohol. If that doesn't work contact Nintendo and see if it is under warranty.

Unable to read disk error. Changed laser still unable to read any disk

The dvd drive has 2 motors in it one to spin the disc and the other to move the laser carriage. If any of them motors fail it will give a disc error reading. Also if you changed the laser make sure that laser carriage is locked on on the drive spline. If you can freely move the laser up and down with out any resistance then its not locked into place.

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

Does not read the disc and makes a funny noise

If there is a bad noise coming from inside of your Wii when you are trying to load a game, either there is something stuck inside of the DVD drive or a part has fallen out of place. If you feel comfortable with it -- open up the Wii and check things out. Make sure the kids didn't put anything in the drive. If you're not comfortable with it, the following website does Wii repairs and sells the whole DVD drive unit for the Wii:

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.

Wii reads disk, but won't play it

I've been suggesting this a lot today, but it works for me 9 out of 10 times. Hold the power button on the front of the console for at least ten seconds. The light should turn red. Give it a second, then hit it again and it will reboot. See if this makes a difference.

Won't accept a disc

It sounds like the laser may have gone out. Check to make sure the disc is clean and inserted with the label facing outwards. If this doesn't work and/or your Wii also makes strange noises while trying to read the disc that more than likely means a bad laser. You can purchase a laser and fix it yourself if your good at things like that. If not there are game repair companies that will do it for a fee.
