Hi friend plz don't bother with the wii cleaner.

First of all plz make sure the game disc is looking in the right direction. If yes then

Try this:
Unplug your Wii from both the wall socket and the Wii and let it sit for at least five minutes. Do that, turn it back on, and it should be back to normal! If not then you can call Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.

I hope this will help you out. Please vote for em.

Most games will not load on our Wii. Only one will load -- Wii Music. We just bought a new disc (so no damage issues) and even it will not load. Is there a cleaner disk for the wii system? Would that help?...

I do NOT recommend using any cleaner other than the 1st party Wii Lens Cleaning Kit. The Wii Lens Cleaning Kit can either be purchased online, or at your local game store. Though a lens cleaning kit may help, chances are that your disc reader is damaged or broken. If a disc cleaning kit will not work and the problem persists, I recommend calling Nintendo Customer Service and setting up a repair. You can send in your Wii and have them repair it for a price (for free if you still have your warranty).
Thanks for using FixYa!

We have just bought a wii game thru and my son has put it in the wii console and it comes up with an error message saying it cannot read disk, have you any ideas what may be wrong?

try another game disk, if you get the same result, the laser inside may have burned out, if not, you should get a can of air duster and spray inside the disk slot, otherwise the game may be too scratched(if bought used) or unable to play with the firmware you are using

Is the disk dirty or scratched? This error commonly occurs when a damaged disk is unable to be read by the system. If your other games work, then the cause is likely the disk.

It doesn't recognize the wii fit plus disc it tells me to insert disc

Are you inserting the disc properly? And when is the last time you ran a laser lens cleaner through your Wii system. Dust and contaminants can cause disc read errors.

When I put my disc in the wii it says error refer to manual. Are there any disc cleaners for the Wii?

Yes, I just bought a GE laser lens cleaner from Target. It explicitly said it is ok for the PlayStation, Wii and XBox. And it worked. I have other issues with my PS3 but the system went from not recognizing any Blu-Ray disks to being able to read them. Just make sure whatever you buy explicity says it will work on the Wii.

It looks like the wii cant read the disc, check the condition of the disc for scratches or for grease marks, scraches and grease marks are a common problem with any kind of disc, my answer to this is to invest in a disc cleaning system, it will remove most scratches, even it it dont it will remove the sharp edge of the scratch whitch will allow it to play.

When a disk is inserted, an error message comes up saying that it is unable to read the disk. We tried a disk cleaner which didn't seem to help. Any suggestions?

I would recommend that you take the console to a game store and get them to have a look at it, it sounds like there might be a fault with the CD drive or the laser not reading the discs properly
