Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

A Game I bought will not work.

I have ordered a pre-used game from a store, but every time I insert the disk, my consol will not read the disk. It always says either ''Close Tray'' when the disk is in, or ''Play DVD'', even though its not a DVD. All my other games work fine. I have cleaned the disk multiple times but nothing seems to work.

Check the inside ring of the disc for a v shape deformation or cracks. also look for dimples. That is usually the problem with some older 360 games.

I bought an original xbox game from the Philippines and they said it should work on a US console.. I'm from Australia and bought my console there hoping the disk would work. However, when I insert the disk...


This means that the console reads the disk as something foreign. Region codes are encoded onto disks so you can't get really cheap disks from china and use them in the USA. You will have to get a new disk from the US.

Console work but disk wont spin for slim ps2


The most common reason for the games not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!

Take care.

Assassin's Creed 2 won't load on Xbox 360


Sounds like your cd drive is not reading the discs properly. If that's not the problem, then you have a scratched disc on your hands.

Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your scratched/non-working game to them. They will give you good money for it.

My nintendo wii says an error ocurred when i put a disc in


first the obvious if ur new to wii.... make sure the picture side of the disc is the on the right side when you insert it (facing outwards)
    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message
    Playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Click here for specific help.
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:

  • 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.

  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.

  • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
  • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards
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 by following the disc cleaning procedures
Cleaning a Game Disc Fingerprints, smudges, and other foreign material can interfere with a game disc being properly read by the Wii console. Please use the information on this page to properly clean a dirty Game Disc.
Important Notes (please read first):

  • Use only: straight strokes when wiping the disc (do not use a circular motion).
  • Use only: a clean, soft, cotton cloth (do not use paper towels, facial tissue, etc.).
  • Use only: water (do not use soap or any other cleaning solution).

  • Do NOT use: solvents such as: benzine, window cleaner, paint thinner, anti-static aerosol spray or abrasive cleaners.
  • Do NOT use: machines designed to clean discs or remove scratches. These types of devices could damage the surface of the disc.
Properly cleaning a game disc:

  1. Dampen a portion of a clean, soft, cotton cloth, using only plain water.

  2. With the damp part of the cloth, use straight strokes and wipe the bottom of the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  1. Using a dry part of the cloth, use straight strokes and wipe from the inside rim to the outside rim.

  2. After all of the water has been removed, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii console.

  3. Try to play the game to see if the problem has been resolved.
    • If the problem has been resolved, be sure to properly take care of your game discs by storing them in their plastic cases in order to help prevent your discs from becoming dirty or scratched. Storing games in cases other than the ones they came in, or storing them outside their cases, may damage the disc.
    • If the same problem continues, the cause is likely damage to the disc. Use the disc replacement policy to determine how to get your game replaced.
    • If the game never worked or you are discovering errors in areas you have entered for the first time, it is possible that the problem could be with the system or the disc. (The system may still be the problem even if the disc shows some signs of damage.) Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss possible repair options.
If you are occasionally experiencing disc read errors, you may want to consider purchasing the Wii Lens Cleaner.

If the Wii is having trouble with a disk, it means there's either a problem with the disk or the Wii. If your Wii can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo. Otherwise you need to investigate your disk. If you hold the bottom side of the disk to the light you should be able to see if there's a smudge or scratch. If it's a smudge, cleaning the disk will often fix the problem. I like to use the microfiber cloths used to clean eyeglasses or, short of that, a tissue. Just rub the smudged spot. (When using a tissue I generally steam up the spot with my breath first.) Don't exert more force than necessary; it's a flimsy disk, not a kitchen sink. If the disk looks good, put it back into the Wii and see what happens.
A scratch is more problematic. If it's a game you just bought, try exchanging it where you bought it. Otherwise you can try polishing out the scratch.

good luck...

Try updating the firmware. If it doesn't work, then take it to a repair shop, there's nothing you can do.

Open tray and insert disk


Try cleaning the disc head, or the laser piece. A cleaner disc can be bought at most stores, or online.

My wii wont load any games


We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.

Won't read disk


Certain Sega Dreamcast Consoles have issues with the laser lens and the motor of the disk reading system. Some of them die after a certain period of use.

Error 80028f17


Error 80028f17 is a boot error and there is nothing you can really do about it, the disk is corrupted or burned (illegal copy) of the game. If it is legit, go back to the store and ask for another copy as it doesn't work.
