How frustrating -- but very common unfortunately.

If you want to try and remove it yourself, you will need to open the Wii and open the drive. Most of the time, after you open the Wii, the coin will fall right out. Other times, you will also need to open the drive to fix it. There is a company here in the U.S. that will remove a coin pretty cheap, around $29.95 including shipping of the Wii back to you as long as nothing else is damaged:

SOURCE: My granddaughter used my Wii dvd slot as a coin

you want to take off the side of the wii with a screwdriver (or whatever you might need) and see if you can see any coins lodged in there. If all else fails call nintendo and see if they can help you.

SOURCE: my child stuck hard plastic

yikes. The wii won't have enough power to eject it on its own. find a guide and take your wii apart pull out the drive, and take the drive itself apart. then pull the stuff out. Or call nintendo and shell out however much they want you to pay, your choice. Sorry, but thats pretty much all you can do. I would just buy a new one. chances are that if it is jammed in there that good, something broke inside the drive.

Foreign object i wii


U need to have a Y-shaped screw-driver to open your wii..they are traditionally called tri-wing or Y0. Once you have those, I suggest you take photos as you dissemble the console so that you put it back in the correct (reverse) order that you opened it..
Good Luck

Something stuck inside wii where the games go


The only solution would be to try and shake them out gently, though this may harm the components inside. The best option would be to either take it to a repair shop to get them removed or open it yourself, though doing it yourself will void the warranty and therefore isn't advisable.

The game cube games keep getting stuck what do i do?


clear the front panel of any dust, etc.
lay the unit on its side instead of standing it up.

Another thing you may want to look at is coins. If you have children, check for coins in the machine. I have seen that happen before which makes discs lodge in the units.

Best thing to do when playing GC games int eh wii thoguh is to lay it flat.
