How to troubleshoot the wii


  • 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.
  • 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.
To clean disc:
  1. Dampen a clean, soft, cotton cloth with water.
  2. Use straight strokes and wipe the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  3. Using a dry part of the cloth, repeat step 2 to dry the disc.
  4. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii console.
If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced or you can possibly taken it to a game store or movie store to get it resurfaced (buffed)

My Wii will not not read Wii disc's...HELP


Hello :

1:This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.
2:If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.
3:Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
4: your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
5: If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards
6:If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc

good luck .

rate please !

Monopoly Dollar in the Disc Slot


You need a special screwdriver. You can get one from ebay it's called a tri-wing. Just search for "wii screwdriver" and then there are take apart guides all over the net and youtube videos.

It's not hard but it's a bit painstaking the first time.

Gamecube game stuck in wii


Well i have expirienced the same thing. what you have to do is put the console face down so that the game slot is facing the floor then press the eject button but if that doesnt work you have to heat up the system by leaving it on for about 3 hours then tilt it and press the button and that should get the disc out for you.
