This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Nintendo and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Clicking sound when laptop is turn on nothing happens

Allen: You say Clicking....and evidently no activity whatsoever?
Is the same thing happening with or without the power supply attached? Is the power Cell (internal battery) charged and previously working? If So...the hard Drive was damaged and failing. A clicking noise from the drive indicates a power surge or other damage to the drive prevents it from Booting. The drive will need to be replaced and you can do it yourself. It slides out from the drive port and simply replace it with a new drive. Once that is done, you will need to put an operating system (Win7 or 8.1) on the new drive and install all of the previous programs once again. Clicking drives will not be accessed and all of you data will be lost. No way to recover that! If you need me out and I will take you through the steps to get going again.

When a Wii breaks, it is almost always the disc drive. Both I and 4 other people I know had the disc drive in our Wii's die within 1 year of purchase. Based on your description, this is certainly what has happened to yours. Normally, I would advise you to send the console to Nintendo for repair. If the Wii is under warranty they will perform such repairs for free. However, since your friend opened the console, it will no longer be under warranty. You will have to pay for the repairs.

You can also attempt to repair it yourself by ordering a replacement drive from a parts seller online or from ebay. But if you are not electronically inclined, I would advise you to send ti to a professional. As a last alternative you can sell your broken device on ebay and put that money towards the purchase of a new Wii console, as they are relatively inexpensive.

I understand that it will work without the sensor bar. But, the reason why there is a sensor bar is that it needs to read the activity that is happening around it. It worked without the sensor bar while you did some exercises but it didn't when you bend over because the wii needs more sensory activity with that certain movement.

The functionality of the wii in detecting the movement is not full when the sensor bar is removed. I suggest you put in the sensor bar while doing all the exercises. If it doesn't work, just let me know by leaving a message in this thread.

There is a software bug in the programme. When you reach November and you are No 1 in the rally points, save the game BEFORE you click on the next month button (which will take you to the Credits and then the start of a new year. Once the game is saved, exit the game and then change the language on your WII console to Spanish. Load up the game in Spanish and click on the next month button. Once you are through the credits and into the start of the new year, save the game again and then exit and return your WII console settings to English. It's a bit of a performance, but it does work.

Once the disc is inseted into the game we clickon

This means that the disc is unreadable. I suggest cleaning it with a clean cloth. If that does not help, I suggest replacing the game by buying a new copy of it.

Cannot register character on Wii fit.

 Are you pointing at the calendar with the wii remote? Other than that... you might want to try re-syncing the remote with the wii, or change the batteries in it. If none of that works, try cleaning the disc, a tiny bit of dish soap and a dribble of water should do the trick.
If all fails, something in wrong with the disc or the remote.
