Since the Wii has an optical drive, what you need to do is to insert a straightened paper clip into a tiny hole that is located on the front of the drive, typically right next to the eject switch. Once you’ve inserted the clip, the stuck CD should be easily ejected.

My discs wont load


You could find the manual on the internet by google. Im afraid that it's possible that it possibly broke the disc drive or the part of the drive that automatically loads and ejects the disc.

We got a game stuck in the wii consele....We tried ejecting the game as well as turning the game off...nothing is working.


You have to try out all these options first:

Turn the Wii off and on again after about 20 seconds. Press the eject button again.

Unplug the Wii's AC power supply if Step 1 doesn't work. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, and trying to eject the disc again after turning the Wii back on.

Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds.

Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles. If you hold the Wii upside down, it may help the disc fall out.

Call Nintendo and send the Wii back if non of these steps work. In most cases, a disc stuck in the Wii should be covered by warranty.

Nintendo says to see if power light was coming on, AC adapter reset. unplug from both ends for 90 seconds.Hold eject button for five or 10 seconds.

If none of this works, you might wanna try this, but it is not a preferred method, if you ask me, even though it can be done.

To remove a disc you'll need three sets of tweezers. And possibly a bobby-pin.
First you need to turn the Wii upside down (and preferably unplugged from a power source)
Second, using two sets of tweezers, press the small metal "guards" down. These are located just inside the mouth of the Wii. They're there to keep the disc from free falling, and inhibit their removal. They aren't locked and shouldn't be difficult to press down.
Third, you'll need to reach "up" through the middle of the mouth with the third set of tweezers to grab hold of the disc. I'd highly recommend using flat tweezers, not sharp ones as the disc may become scratched.
NOTE: The disc itself rests on the internal carriage (through the center hole of the disc) and if upside down, should fall into your tweezer's grasp easily. If it doesn't then you need a bobby pin to dislodge. Gently press the bobby pin on top of the disc and then grip the disc with the tweezers.
Finally, gently pull and the disc and push on the bobby pin and the disc will slide out easily .

This can be done with one person, but helps if you have an extra hand.
Good luck.

My wii game says "


Your console isn't reading the game disc. You may need to clean the lens inside the disc player (you could try a can of air into the disc tray if you'r comfortable with that, i've done this before no big deal.)
OR it could be a mechanical issue. in which case you would likely want a professional to fix it

Game will not eject. I've tried disconnecting power & still nothing. The Wii still plays the game disc fine.


Hi,

Is your eject button broken? Does it click when you punch it, or goes in like the button on the board is broken?

It is either this or there is something jammed inside your system.

Check inside your drive and remove anything stuck in there causing the drive to not function correctly when ejecting.

Hope I helped!

hello micky1965

Try holding down the eject button for at least 10 seconds after turning on the console. If that doesn't work (or you've already tried that). Try the following steps.

1. Unplug Wii from power outlet.
2. Plug in Wii again.
3. Press power button.
4. Press Eject button for at least 10 seconds.
5. If the disc doesn't eject try holding down the power button for 10 seconds and then the eject button again.

If that fails then either return the console to exchange for a new one or contact Nintendo consumer support. Info follows:

I wouldn't attempt to manually remove the disc (by trying to disassemble your Wii) as it may void your warranty. It could simply be a faulty console in which case Nintendo should replace it within 2 weeks (according to posts I've read). It seems to be a somewhat common problem.

If holding down the eject button doesn't work, there's really not much else you can do. Sometimes unplugging and replugging does the trick.

I've had problems with discs not ejecting and some combination of the steps I wrote above solved the problem.

riz.

althought i have a guide for opening inside the wii.?
