Hi there jus4

What to do when your Wii Has problems with reading disks and you have tried cleaning the disk.

This does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it just needs the laser to be readjusted.

Option 1

You can send this off to Nintendo if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the Wii to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

now a new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and you may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.

Option 4

What I recommend is a Wii Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

Some games wont play ie wii play,wii sports,sonic & mario at olympics, yet three other games play no problem none of the disc are scratched or dammaged in any way they show up in the wii menu but when...


I had the same problem. I called wii support (1800-255-3700) and they gave me the solution. Some new games include a wii update that must be installed before the game will work. Insert the disk. When the wii menu comes up point the wii remote at the spinning disc and click A. Follow the instructions for installing the update. Your game will work once the update completes.

Wii disk won't spin


Hi, this will have to be repaired by Nintendo unfortunately. there is a relay switch that initiates the spinning of the disc when it is inserted all the way. this switch also has a sensor telling it to initiate the play/run option. all of this is automated and if either one of these important devices are malfunctioning, it will cause the Action's you are witnessing.

Wii wont play disk


When the Wii takes in a disk two metal fingers rise up to block the opening. These probably got bent when your two year old tried inserting the second disk. If they are bent they will rub the edge of the disk and prevent it from rotating. If a smaller game cube disk will work then bent fingers is the most likely problem. They can be bent back out.

Jammed disc in wii


One of two things happend. The drive was damaged from the fall or one of the cables has come loose keeping you from ejecting the disk. the only way to see what is going on will be to open it up. You can also remove the disk once it's open with a little patience even if the drive is broken.
