Wii games won't play....

I bought my daughter her Wii for christmas and it worked fine up until now. I am getting an error message "unable to read disc read manual for troubleshooting". For some odd reason I didn't get a manual in english so I don't know how to troubleshoot. What could possibly be a problem? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Call customer service. It seems that some Wii's are scratching dics. The warranty will cover it. Look on the readable side of the disc and see if it is leaving circular scatches. Mine is doing the same thing to certain games.

Your control needs synchronising to your console.
To do this open hatch door on front of your console take the back of your control theres a red button in both press them wait a about 30 secs remote should work..

I don't think it should cost anything assuming you just got it on Christmas, it should be under warranty.
Regardless, try using a CD based drive cleaner. If that doesn't help, it's highly likely the laser is going bad.

Try to play music cd's and other games to see if the Wii will read anything. Make sure the discs are clean as well. If the Wii is still not playing anything then that means the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

I got wii fit the disk wont work !!!!!!

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

My wii wont load any games

We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.
