My wii will not read any of the disc


You can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. Also, some older Wii units have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit for that too.

If after cleaning its lens your Wii still can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo.

Hi im trying to use my wii but it keeps saying unable to read disc , why do you think this is ?


Hi there!
When your Wii is having issues reading discs, there could be a number of problems:
  1. game disc is dirty or scratched
  2. disc drive is dirty
  3. the disc is entered into the drive incorrectly
  4. the disc is a game from another region (i.e. trying to play a European PAL gam on and American NTSC Wii
  5. the disc is not a supported Wii or Gamecube disk
  6. the disc drive is broken
  7. the game disc you are using is a counterfeit or burned game
Please try follow the following:
  1. if the game disc is dirty, clean the disc with a soft cotton cloth, scratches can usually be repaired at a local blockbuster or Gamestop if they are light
  2. if the disc drive is dirty you will need to use a cd drive cleaner,you can find them for under $10 at most stores
  3. make sure the disc is entered into the drive correctly, the blank/shiny side of the disk should be facing towards the power button
  4. if the game disc you are using is from a different region of your system (PAL and NTSC) you will NOT be able to play it on your system, please return it and purchase a copy of the game for your region
  5. Make sure you are using a supported Wii or Gamecube disc
  6. counterfeit or burned games will not work on your Wii
  7. if none of these are correcting your problem you most likely have a broken disc drive and will need to either return your Wii for a new one or have it repaired.
Hope this helps!

Wii wont read disc


Either dirty discs, dirty laser or defective laser/disc drive. Wii cleaning discs are available to help wipe the lens clean.(has to be made for the wii $10). Replacing the laser is not a job for the novice. There are U-Tube videos that go through the steps. A new drive is $26, new laser $8. Some places will charge up to $100 for repair. Nintendo is about $90 with shipping.

Wii Will not read games


Hopefully it is just a dirty laser. You can purchase a disc head cleaner (has to be made for wii) and run it in your wii to try cleaning or just blow some compressed air in it. It may also be a worn out laser. You can replace the laser, the whole drive, or send it to nintendo for $80 and shipping. There are many helpful guides on utube that can show you how to take a wii apart and replace the laser. Other than those options, make sure the discs you are trying to read are clean. You could sell it. Broken Wii's sell on ebay for about $45.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wii will not read discs


The first step is to check the disc. If you are sure this is not a problem with the game disc, then this is usually a problem with either the laser inside of the Wii's drive, or some other issue going on inside of the DVD drive. The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well. If you have tried cleaning the system already, there's probably a problem with the DVD reader:

Wii fit plus game disc will not load up - it is a replacement - it seems to run and then stop and the 'please insert disc' message comes up - any ideas please?


Your laser reader inside of the Wii is either dirty or needs to be replaced. Try cleaning it with the following wet lens cleaner (NEVER use dry cleaners on Video Game Systems - it can ruin the laser). If this doesn't help, your laser or DVD drive inside of the Wii may need to be replaced. The same website sells the parts if you need it -- but if the disc is reading them stopping, it may just be a dirty laser lens:

My wii will not read any discs


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide
