First turn the Wii console power OFF, and remove the AC adapter's AC plug from the power socket. Next, check whether the disc is dirty or scratched. If it is dirty, gently wipe with a soft, damp cloth from the center to the outside. Wait 5 - 10 minutes. Then plug the AC adapter's AC plug back into the power socket and turn the console power on. If the same message still appears, the Wii console may be damaged. turn the Wii console off immediately. Remove the AC adapter's AC plug from the plug and visit support.nintendo.com for additional troubleshooting or call 1-800-255-3700

Most common fix i've done for this issue is to take apart the wii and manually move the laser up and down the bars the laser slides on. If this doesn't work,a replacement drive is usually ~40-50$usd . If you find yourself not able to either of these, find a local electronic repair person or call nintendo and see if maybe they have a list of qualified repair companies local to you.

Wii unable to read gamecube 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

Wii disk error


If the console try to read the disk, but you only get whirring and clicking noise, ending up with a no disk, and if this happens with all disks then it is a lens problem.

Try first cleaning the Wii lens with a cleaner disk, that is the easiest thing to do.

If that does not work, the Wii must be opened to access the lens pickup directly, and clean the lens with Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol, or replace the lens pickup.

If the cleaner disk does not fix it, better to contact Nintendo calling the number listed on the user manual to see if they can cover the repair, or replace the Wii, before disassembling the console.

To install wii fit


    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • 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


  • 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

  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

You may have to replace the laser in the wii so that it can read the disc, if this isn't thecase, then I don't have any other solutions for you.
