Wont read disc

My son dropped the wii and i took it apart and found a chip next to the power button was loose. fixed taht and everything worked until i put it all back together now it won't read the disc. I can see the laser move about 1/2 inch from the center out and it returns to the center. my guess it is out of calibration. Can it be re-calibrated

Sure, but wii dvd drive is very hard to adjust laser and calibration fixes...it´s very sensitive, you must search for youtube to see calibrating videos for Wii....take a look in the motherboard to see if there is any chip or components loose inside the wii...Good Luck!!!

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.

Wii wont read our discs


For console related problems its best to contact the manufacturers 1800 number

for Wii

1-800-255-3700


By calling them they will most likely instruct you on a few simple push button commands to change the settings back on your system (at no charge)

Will not read disc


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 read wii discs


I had the same problem, I take it you have a modded wii(chipped), if you use a backup disc it is of a lower quality then original discs, the wii gets read errors without you noticing and tries to read those disc areas again sometimes suceeding and the gaming goes on, sometimes it fails, and a disc read error occurs. Over time the dvd assembly will take some damage it will loose it rigidity it once had and the wii stops reading discs. The problem gets worse if you have standing up, so first thing si to flip it down and try. Otherwise you (or someone you trust) will have to open the wii and adjust the lens sled so it wont flap as much up and down. Hope this helps..
