Navigate to the Wii Menu by pressing the HOME button on a Wii Remote and selecting "Wii Menu."
Look at the date and time displayed on the Wii Menu and ensure they are correct. If incorrect, they will need to be changed in order for you to complete the PIN reset process. You will not be able to reset the PIN until the date is correct.
Select the Wii Options icon in the lower-left corner of the Wii Channel Menu.
Select "Wii Settings."
Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
Select "Parental Controls," then "Yes."
Enter your PIN or select "I forgot."
Answer your secret question or tap "I forgot."
If you know the answer to your secret question, enter it to unlock parental controls. The system will go to the change parental controls screen and you will be able to change your PIN.
Be sure to enter the secret question exactly as you originally typed it, as the answer is case sensitive.
If you don't know the answer to your secret question, tap "I forgot."
A screen will appear showing you a request code.
With that request code, you will need to do a request that involves charging US$0.50 from a credit card, to confirm that you're an adult. Or should your kids try to circumvent your parental code, it will show up on your credit card bill.
Check all the leads from the Wii to the TV and make sure they are not loose or broken. Also check the regional settings in the settings menu and make sure its set to your area. If your TV has component inputs make sure you have a Wii component cable or you could
buy a Wii RGB Scart cable if you only have a spare scart input. If you
turn on the Wii press menu on your TV and alter the AV settings. For example, change the setting to composite opposed to RGB. Also check your Wii
settings and change them to be in parallel with the TV settings.
Go to the parental controls menu in the wii, and click yes to change the settings. Click "I forgot" twice, and you should get a confirmation code. Go to this website http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.wsgi?number=02221258&date=1008&submit=Get+Reset+Code and enter that number in the Confirmation number box, and click Get Reset Code. You will get a number. Enter that number on the wii, and it will reset your parental controls. Hope this helps!
To put a password on your Wii,
Go to wii Options>Wii Settings
push the + button, and click parental Controls
Click yes and make a 4 digit pin number that's easy for you to
remember, but nothing that someone could easily guess. (like the year
you 1st joined a team or something) push OK, enter it again and push ok.
Choose a secret question, like what they ask you to choose when you
start a new account somewhere (mother's maiden name, your place of
birth, etc.) push ok and type in the answer to that question and push
click "game settings and PIN" and (finally) to block one from playing
games, change the "highest game rating allowed" option to something low
(preferably early childhood so one wont be able to play ANY games
without your permission) by pushing the down icon. hit ok, confirm, and
when you go to play a game, it will ask for the PIN everytime, which
will eventually be a pain in the neck, but at least you'll know your
games are safe
There will be different models of optical drives, depending on what version Wii you have so make sure you check on the websites for instructions on how to check which laser you need.
I would suggest taking your Wii to a professional electrician to have the part installed (unless youre a little tech savvy). Working with lasers & electrical components can obviously be a risk to yourself & your equipment.
There's a couple of other things which may be causing the problem, such as the motor in your optical drive (see if you can hear the disk spinning & check that it's not making any strange noises when you put the disk in)
There could also be a power supply problem to your optical drive.
Otherwise if you want to try to do it yourself, you'll need a very good soldering iron/glue. If the PCB board broke it will be very difficult to place. If the controller simply came loose, open the unit and inspect the damage.
