Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Unable to load game disc into console

The console will not accept any game. Every time I try to put a game in the console you can hear the unit sound like its spinning, but when you tip the unit the game simply falls out. Do you know what could cause this?

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the unit. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If cleaning the laser does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Sony to see if this unit is still under warranty with this site:

If the unit is not under warranty go to We are a console repair company based out of Dallas, Tx. We can get your console up and running. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty, on the whole console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties for up to 4 years at an additional cost.

My wii powers up then shows only black.

Sounds like a brick. Did you try to soft mod it? If so did you install bootmii?

Doesnt do anything

Try blowing on the little disk reader first, then try wiping the disk reader with a clean cotton shirt. Put the disk in, and listen if the disk spins, if it doesn't it can be one of 2 things.
-if disk doesn't spin
1) the sensor that sensors whether the latch is open(check youtube for bypass)
2)the spin motor is broke (throw out the ps2, and get a new 1)

My xbox 360 sounds ill

Strangely enough inside any of those game boxes is a simple DVD reader driver like for a PC.

It can be replaced.

First I would try cleaning it with a spray air electronic cleaner or any sort of DVD reader cleaner.

Dust will accumulate in them even with the little door that covers it when closed.

If that's not the case, the sensor can also be cleaned with alcohol and a q-tip if you take off the case or the motor may be going bad ont he DVD drive itself.

Start with the basics.

PS2 Slim Will Not Read Games

HI Pepper,

You need to try clenaing the Laser Lens. This is done by Using Q-tip and a window cleaner like Windex. Lightly Dampen one end of the Q-Tip and swab the lens with a slight bit of aggression. Use the Dry end of the swab to dry the lens. Try it out. Also you could have your laser gear popped out. look at the long worm gear to be sure it is stuck in the black holder. This should help you. In the unfortunate event it does not, you probably need a new laser. I do think you will get it working becasue you hear the Disc spinning. If the Laser was really dead, the disc would not spin as in it cannot tell the computer the laser sees a disc. Does the same thing as though no disc is in the drive bay. Contact me at if you need service.
