    My wii was working just fine, we were playing a game when it froze and started making a load noise. We recycled power and ejected disc but now it makes the sound everytime we turn it on and it wont even display anything on the screen.

    Our Wii console is also making noises. It sounds like a PC hard drive that needs a defrag. Does the console alway run so hot??

The DVD drives on all Wii consoles are beginning to wear out. They used a very cheap plastic spindle bearing that has worn and allows the drive to sound like it's grinding up.

The Wii console makes a loud noise as the disk spins

Hello There Jwillie,

I believe you are inserting the disks upside down. Also make sure your Wii console is in the upright position.

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.

I would suggest using a can of compressed air to clean the Wii out. The air should be able to clean out any dust bunnies and dirt that might be creating that noise.

If cleaning it doesn't help it might be out of your power and you'll have to send it into Nintendo. Nintendo's phone number is 1-800-255-3700.

If this helped, please help me and rate me.

Wii makes loud noise

You CAN fix the problem yourself with some patience and special screw driver called a tri-wing.

There are a ton of tutorials and youtube videos to help with the process. Should take you about a solid hour from start to finish.

OR you can probably find someone who fixes Wii's on Criagslist to fix it for 20. That's what I'd charge ;)

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?

I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.
