Question about Nintendo Wii Console

None of 4 controllers will work

I have had my wii just over a year and quite often get a comment upon starting that the disc isn't readable. I turn if off and start it again and it works. Yesterday all 4 of my regular controllers quit working. Yes I tried new batteries. They won't register when I point them to the screen.
Can you help?

i hope this resolves your Problem.
Remove the Controllers Batterys, and you,ll find a small Switch/Button.
This should enable you to Syncronize the Controllers.

No hand is showing upon the screen

Check to make sure the sensor bar is securely plugged in. My sensor bar quit working because the wire got damaged and I just went and bought a wireless one and rechargeable batteries. Mostly the sensor bar is only used for the menu and any games that have target shooting like billiards. You can bowl, play baseball, tennis, and golf without it on Wii Sports. I hardly ever use my sensor bar since discovering that it isn't used as much as I thought. We just turn it on load the game and shut it off and everything works perfectly on most games.

Okay so my super smash brother disc looks fine and isn't scratched or dirty but the consoles will say an error has occurd after 5 minutes then. The wii is 4 years old now.

Have you tried another disc? If it's giving you the same error across the board the laser eye might be dirty. You can try to blow in the game tray or get some kind of computer air duster.

Wii could not read disc

There could be several things wrong. Let's start with the most basic - is the disc inserted correctly? The holographic side needs to be on the left when inserting it. Then, make sure there are no scratches or smudges on the bottom of the disc. A common solution is to wipe it with a cloth or even your shirt if you don't have one handy. Look on the holographic side of the disc to make sure there isn't anything left on it. After cleaning thoroughly, try playing the disc again.
If you're still having a problem, try restarting the Wii console. However, there's always a possibility that you have a bad disc or, if you're unable to play any games, a bad console.

Why isn't my wii zumba loading? No problems with other games


If you are having problems with just one disc, it is most likely the disk at fault. It is either too scratched up or non readable.

Take a look at the link below. It goes over some common solutions to disk read errors.

Alternatively, you can try replacing the disk.

Our one is less than 1 year old. The screeen says 'An error has occured, eject the disc turn off the console and consult the trouble shooting section of the operations manual' What do we do? Model...

This is an extremely common problem with the Wii. The disc drives in them had quite a high failure rate and it sounds like yours has this. Because the Wii is under 1 year old it is still covered under Nintendo's guarantee and if you contact them they should replace it free of charge.

Sometimes this can also be caused by dirty discs, just make sure they are all really clean as the Wii disc drive laser is very sensitive to dirt.

Hope this helps

My wii does not read any game disc

One of the major problems with the Wii not reading discs is related to Dual Layer Discs. Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Brothers Brawl are both dual layer, and are often not readable because of a dirty lens inside of your wii's disc drive. If you have had your Wii for less than a year, it is definitely covered by your warranty, and you should call Nintendo and set up a cleaning.

If you are not within your warranty, I'd call Nintendo anyways to see what they have to say. If they won't do it for you without charging, you could also look into a wii lens cleaning kit online. Make sure you get a good quality one with good customer reviews.

Wii games won't play....

Call customer service. It seems that some Wii's are scratching dics. The warranty will cover it. Look on the readable side of the disc and see if it is leaving circular scatches. Mine is doing the same thing to certain games.
