Laser won't read disc

When I was removing the Wii from the box the way it was packaged it fall on the ground.  Not far but hit the floor.  The problem now is it makes a funny sound when I pt the disc in and won't read.  I'm from canada, in Manitoba.  The bigger problem is I can't retgurn it because I got it from my roommate for a really good deal, he gave me alot of stuff with it.  Anyways any ideas on what to do or where to take it?

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.

You will have to buy a new laser for it but if you take it apart it will void the warranty it maybe that something has come lose inside when you dropped it if you are ok taking it apart you migh find one of the runners damaged it shouldnt be to hard to replace the laser but you will have to shop around for one their easy enough to fit but if you dont want to risk damaging it any more then a computer shop will replace it for you but they will charge more if they have to get the part for you i suggest you check on ebay for one this is the only sollution but it might just be a bit of broken casing is rubbing on something check the disk is spinning if it is just check their is nothing broken or out of place their is not much else you can do sorry

Have a game the wii wont read


Hi, Check and clean the disc. If the disc has too many finger prints it will be harder for the Wii to read. If that doesn't work try a laser cleaner disc. Good luck

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 we try to load the game, a Error comes up saying that the disc cannot be read, or that an error has occured, and to remove the game disc and turn the wii off.

My nintendo wii won`t read the disc`s


lens cleanes are a pretty useless invention. they never work correctly.

How old is this Wii2_bing.gif? If it is out of warranty then you will need to get the triwing drivers2_bing.gif and follow this guide to calibrate the laser and manually clean it: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4192169-fix_calibration_cd_dvd_drive_no_disc

if this is in warranty, call nintendo and have it serviced so you dont' void the warranty opening the box yourself
