Wii unable to accept/eject disc making buzzing sound

My younger son inserted 2 discs at once in the wii...I was able to get them out and insert one after that and the wii worked fine. Two days later we tried to insert a disc and the wii just keeps making a buzzing sound and is unable to accept the disc.

  • When the disks were put in/taken out the little plastic clips in side the wii may have broken off. Might be stuck near the motor. Gently shake while rotating the the wii with all the cords off with no game inside. listen for anything loose. If your lucky the piece will go to another part of the wii. Best thing is to find someone to take it apart to check.

The Wii will not read my disc


Situation:

The Wii console will not accept game discs or the discs are ejecting immediately
 

What To Do:

Press the eject button on the front of the console. The console will not accept any discs if there is already a disc inserted, and it is common to forget that a disc was already inserted.
If the system still won't accept discs, or if the discs are immediately ejected, this indicates a problem with the mechanism that pulls the discs into the system and the Wii will need to be repaired. To begin the repair process, click here.

Wii makes grinding noise, when disc is inserted, it immediately ejects it, accepts it back in, then ejects it onto the floor while making horrible grinding noises


There is either something inside of your Wii's DVD Drive blocking the insertion of the disc, or some of the gears inside of the DVD drive are damaged. Lots of times, one of the kids will stuff a penny, credit card, or some other foreign object inside of the Wii's disc slot. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

Unable to read disc I have 20 something games it wont read any of them


Here are the steps that worked for some:
1. Completely power down the console.
2. Power up the console and get to the Wii Menu.
3. Eject any disc currently in the console.
4. Press the eject button again, without any discs in the drive.
5. Insert the disc that you would like to play.

If this doesn't work then contact Wii customer support.

Wii won't "take in" disks.


There is a trigger switch that the disc hits when it is inserted, this tells the consol to pull the disc in, when a disc is ejected the proper way the system retracts the trigger so the disc can be ejected, By pulling the disc out with force your son has either broken the trigger and the consol cannot tell that a disc is inserted, or he has pulled the trigger backwards and the disc is not making contact with the trigger...You will have to disassemble the consol to inspect the trigger (unless you can see it threw the slot) and either place it in its proper setting or super glue it back together.. Another option is to send it in for repair...Hope this helps

you may need to get a trigram screwdriver to undo the funny screws in the wii and take a look, mine had a piece of paper in it and it sometimes stopped discs coming out.
