Disc will not eject


Turn the Wii off and on again after about 20 seconds. Press the eject button again.

Unplug the Wii's AC power supply if Step 1 doesn't work. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, and trying to eject the disc again after turning the Wii back on.

Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds

Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles. If you hold the Wii upside down, it may help the disc fall out.

Call Nintendo and send the Wii back if non of these steps work. In most cases, a disc stuck in the Wii should be covered by warranty.

Nintendo says to see if power light was coming on, AC adapter reset. unplug from both ends for 90 seconds.Hold eject button for five or 10 seconds.

My game turns to a black screen and tells me to eject the disc and turn off the power and read manual


OK, first the bad news, usually 'black screen of death' occurs when carrying out an update, usually request by some games before the game will work, if this update hasn't been performed correctly, or a power outage whilst updating, this will 'brick' your wii, pretty much non recoverable, send it back to Nintendo for fix.

If the wii has been modded in anyway, to allow homebrew, there will be/was a homebrew channel, some applications can cause the black screen. Usually this can be rectified by looking through the forums where the homebrew os was downloaded from.

However, If, as you said, this has been a progressive error, the fact a disc was being read, but then black screened with the 'eject disc'/'disc read' error and now it isn't reading any disc would indicate that the dvd drive can not read the disc, the easiest solution for this would be to replace the dvd drive.

Although it may be possible to just replace the lens unit or motor, it would depend upon how adept you are at DIY. These tend to be a little expensive, £10 for the motor, £20 for the lens to £70 for a dvd drive. Although these can be sourced on ebay for cheaper - take the usual precautions though, as there are some pretty unscrupulous people selling failed drives. Refurbished drives from around £35 do exist too

You can compare your drive with a drive database using your wii mode/serial number http://www.wiidrives.com/list to make sure you're getting the correct drive model.

My Wii Console just started making a noise when it is trying to read the disk. You can hear it spinning up very loud. I then tried to eject the disk and it made a very loud noise and wouldn't eject the...


Maybe the disc reader in the Wii is having problems, this could be natural for the Wii, but if it isn't reading the disc, then try talking to the nintendo company and ask them that there is a loud noise in the Wii when its reading discs, they should know what to do. My Wii does that sometimes, especially Super Smash Brothers Brawl, but it still works though. hope that helps.

Disc won't eject from the console


Uhh...thats weird. My options are to turn off the wii and turning it back on to see what happens and if it doesnt read still, then try taking it out. Another way is to keep clicking the eject button till it comes out. Hope that helps.

Unable to read disc I have 20 something games it wont read any of them


Here are the steps that worked for some:
1. Completely power down the console.
2. Power up the console and get to the Wii Menu.
3. Eject any disc currently in the console.
4. Press the eject button again, without any discs in the drive.
5. Insert the disc that you would like to play.

If this doesn't work then contact Wii customer support.

Disc Error


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....
