Continuous clicking could be a few gear-related issues:

-if the pinion gear is slipping against the rack for the disc-load mechanism, you can try to re-align the rack (hopefully it was just forced out of place and can be clicked back). i would suspect this if the noise is relatively quiet and very fast.

-if something is jamming the load mechanism, like the rack is stuck, the pinion gear may be clicking over the teeth of the rack. i would suspect this if the noise is loud and slower.

If the wii is under warrenty i suggest you take it in!!! if not have a repair centre fix it. it will need a new drive.

I upgraded my wii to 4.0 and installed the homebrew channel.Everything seemed to work great,so I tried to play guitar hero 3 the game shows up in disc channel but when you click start the screen goes black...


You might want to try a Loader instead of the Wii's disc channel. Are you playing original games or backups? You might have broke the Homebrew channel with the 4.0 upgrade. Check out this Wii homebrew set of tutorials to see if it'll help

The screen goes blank, wii emits buzzing noise.


refrain from playing for a few days.

its what you call a black screen of death. it will keep happening until your wii stops if you dont refrain from playing for a while and obey the health/safety rules (sometimes the wiis pass becuase the health/safety rules hide the bsod) [health/safety rules: take a ten - minute break every hour.] BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR WII IT IS VERY FRAGILE IF IT GETS A BSOD!!!!!!! {fragile=easily damaged INTERNALLY}

Well,

If you take apart the Wii very carefully, you might be able to get the game out (which you will most likely never be able to play again because the clicking noise is most likely the disc being rubbed against something) without causing damage to the Wii. Doing this is risking causing damage to your Wii (and yourself if you are too dumb to un-plug it.) so if you have bought your Wii less than a year ago,

Nintendo of America Inc. ("Nintendo") warrants to the original purchaser that the hardware product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty occurs during this warranty period, Nintendo or a NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER will repair the defective hardware product or component, free of charge. The original purchaser is entitled to this warranty only if the date of purchase is registered at point of sale or the consumer can demonstrate, to Nintendo's satisfaction, that the product was purchased within the last 12 months.

if you purchased your Wii more than a year ago,


SERVICE AFTER EXPIRATION OF WARRANTY
Please try our web site at www.nintendo.com or call the Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 for troubleshooting information and/or referral to the nearest NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER. In some instances, it may be necessary for you to ship the complete product, FREIGHT PREPAID AND INSURED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE, to the nearest service location. Please do not send any products to Nintendo without contacting us first.

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound


I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.
