    I bought my Wii slightly used, and while trying to load in Wii Sports, I found that the previous owner had left a game in it. After coaxing the Wii, I managed to get the disk to play after three attemps, and it played just fine for the rest of the night. This morning, the disk wont load, and neither will Wii Sports. I wonder what's wrong with it.

All it does is says "error please eject the disk and turn the wii console off" We just bought 4 NEW GAMES without knowing this! We are extreamly mad right now! Does anyone know how to fix the wii?

SOURCE: some wii game disks aren't being read. I know the

Take a can of air and gently blow some into the drive to make sure there is no dust or dirt interfering with the laser.

If after you do this and the drive is still having problems then the laser is starting to go bad and either the laser needs to be replaced or the whole drive.

Wii u games load but get stuck and wont play


HI Denise.

Sometimes a Wii or Wii U is unable to read a disk, or the game will freeze or crash. And sometimes the console won't play any disk at all. Before you throw the disk in the trash or the console out the window, here are a couple of things that might get you back to playing games.13 Jul 2017

My Wii will not Play GC games. It tells me "Unable to read disk, Check operations manual". Game has no scratches and my Wii is about 3years old. Plays Wii games just fine so I don't know...


Check your serial number on your Wii. If it starts with KU, it can't read them. If it starts with LU, and it's ONLY GC games it won't play, then your system needs to be repaired.

Out of warranty repair cost is $85 plus tax for America.

Console won't read disk. when disk in console, message comes up unable to read disk


If you are getting that message then there is likely 2 reasons.
1: is because your disk is scratched up or something.
2: your disk reader that is inside of your Wii Console is out of place.

The wii is giving the message "unable to read


  • This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.


  • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

Wii is scratching discs and unable to load


If there are kids around check if something is inside it. If there is and it is rubbing on the disk it will slow the disk so the console won't read it. It does kind of look like a coin slot.

    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.

    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards


  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures

Rock Band / All Games "Unable to Read Disk"


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

Unable to load games


I have a very similar problem that my wii console gives me black screen with disk read error every time I inserted a new disc that worked previously. The way I worked around this problem is by
1. ejecting the disc
2. powering off(hold the power button for about 10 seconds)
3. unplugging the power cord
4. waiting one minute or so
5. plugging in again and re-inserting disc
This worked every time when I switched disc.
