The discs could not be read and they have no scratches and look fine then


The Wii console will not play game discs (disc is not recognized)
System displays either error message "Unable to read disc" or "Disc could not be read"
 

Note

Wii Game Discs are region locked, and can only be played on hardware from the same country where the game was released. (A European game cannot be played on a North American system, for example.)
 

What To Do:

The Wii console is only compatible with Wii and GameCube discs. It is not compatible with DVDs or discs made for other home consoles. Verify that the disc you are inserting is compatible with the Wii system.
An error message may display if the disc is ejected during play. Return to the HOME Menu before changing discs.
Verify that the console is placed correctly.
If the Wii console is lying flat, the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
If the Wii console is standing vertically, the power button should be on the top and the console should be in the stand. Note: Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are intended to be placed vertically. (Learn more)
Verify that the disc is being inserted properly.
If the console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards.
If the console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
Check the non-printed side of the game disc for dirt or severe damage (such as scratches or cracks).
If the disc is dirty, try cleaning the game disc. (How to)
If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced. Please click here for replacement options.
If the problem occurs with only one game disc, there may be a problem specific to that game. Click here to check our list of specific game issues.
Make sure only licensed accessories are being used. Unlicensed products do not undergo Nintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with our game systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games or accessories.

Error message . to turn off power. call service. will not run game


Well there is a hardware issue with the gamecube that needs to be fixed then. Or you could buy a wii and play gamecube games on a wii like i do instead. Wii's are better than gamecubes are because they both play wii and gamecube disc's too.

What if im playing a Wii and my Gamecube disc doesn't work? I've bought a faulty disc before, but I doubt that this is the case. What should I do?


You have a dirty laser or bad laser or bad disc. Suggest seeing if it played on a gamecube or someone elses wii. Will your system play all your other games? If so its the game disc. If your wii has troubles with other games its your wii console.
