Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I got my Wii on the release date. It worked for a long time. Eventually, it started messing up on reading the discs from the Wii menu. I would retry 2 or 3 more tries and it would still work. However, today, I found that I was completely unable to play game discs no matter how many times I tried. All other functions of the Wii work, I think.
If the standard things to try don't work cleaning the disk, resetting the wii. Call the tech support number, either they will offer to send you a prepaid return label for returning the console free. Or they will ask for a credit card number first and then send you out a new wii (in 3-4 days) and then you will have 21 days to send back your old one. They will charge you $5 for shipping and will need your credit card information to ensure that you do send the malfuctioning unit back.
Don't forget to backup your saved games on a SD card and your mii's (up to 10) on each remote.

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
