This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a quetip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem then the laser in the drive needs to be replaced on the unit. Contact sony to see if the unit is still under warranty. If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can clean/replace the laser for you. We give a free diagnosis of the unit(excluding shipping), and will call with an estimate before any work is done on the unit. All our work is covered by a 30 day warranty, and you can buy extended warranty up to 4 years.

When disk is installed the Wii Menu comes up but the disk is spinning and does not show the name of the disk in console.


What kind of disk is it? If it's a game then the disk might be damaged, meaning you'd have to get a new one.

It could also mean the disk drive in your Wii is broken. If other game disks work it should be fine, though.

If it's a DVD or a music CD, it's the same story - the disk must be damaged, or it's possible it's a format the Wii can't read, in which case there's nothing you can do.

If it's a disk you burned yourself, your Wii probably refuses to read it. Nintendo has restrictions on what kind of disks the Wii will read to prevent piracy.

Says play dvd when entering games


This usually is caused by haveing a very dirty disk. Regular dusting probably won't solve it, get your hands on a disk cleaner, (Walmart usually carries them) also run a DVD drive cleaning disk through your console. If that doean't work your drive will probably need to be torn apart and cleaned.

**Make sure your warranty is expired before you open your console.

Won't read any disks. DVD's, Games, or Music


If the system boots up and goes to the dash board but when you put a game or dvd in does nothing or says it can't read the cd. The problem is the CD Rom is dead. You can try cd rom cleaner cds found at Walmart. It could also be a dirty lens.

Hope this helps

Disk reading error


Hi,

this is a possible laser read problem.
Try an official DVD Movie. And also a music CD.
if it reads nothing at all, i,d suggest a laser head cleaner.
Or a replacement DVD Drive.

My xbox360 wont play any disk


I had a problem like this a few days ago, my 360 had problems reading my disks. I ended up opening it up and cleaning the laser in the dvd drive. After that it played fine, if that doesn't work you might need a new dvd drive.
