Question about Nintendo Wii Console
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:

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.

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.
