Disk wont read


If this happens to all discs, then the xbox's lens could hardly read the discs because it need cleaning. You need to run a disc cleaner and let it spin on the xbox for like 30 seconds then try again. If it does not work, then you need to clean the lens manually inside the xbox which would require you to open the casing. Then get a swab, damp it to an alcohol and gently wipe in the lens surface in a circular manner. Let it dry and return everything back. The try playing those discs agian.

Hope this helps Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello there,

It wont read your discs simple because the lens could hardly read them because it is dirty and probably needs cleaning. Try running a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. Then try playing those discs again. If this does not work, then you might need to clean the lens manually by disassembling the wii, taking out the casing and cleaning the lens with a swab damped in an alcohol. Just gently wipe the swab on the lens surface in a circular manner and let it dry. Then put everything back and try playing those discs again.

By the way, this video might give you an idea how to disassemble the wii.

Wont play


If its not a power problem, notice that the servo motor is spinning or trying to spin with a disc in the tray.
-listen carefully for a high pitch or whinning sound of the motor.
-do you have a reading on the screen? No disc or reading disc?

One of the above can be:
1- a defective laser (it wont illuminate)
2- a broken flat cable to the laser (you wont hear clicking sound when reading)
3- a bad servo motor that can not reach its speed to read the disc (has to spin at a very high speed)

Hope you can solve the problem, succes

Disc read thing (PLZ HELP!)


If you find out that it is spinning then the laser was probably knock ajar and will need adjusted. There are good step by step instructions on several sites if you search for that. I had to do it to mine that would spin and then say disc read error. The whole thing does have to come apart but when you have it apart the adjustment is the easy part.

Disc won't spin


I hate to be the bearer or bad tidings, but it sounds like the previous owner tried to repair the DVD tray and failed. You might want to take the unit apart and see if there are any internal screws missing. If there are any missing, it can definitely cause issues with the spin up on the DVD tray. If everything is intact, you may have to replace the DVD tray. Hope this helps. Good luck.
