Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Unfortunately the Wii suffers from a few disc problems. The lasers in the drive are very sensitive to dirt and grease on the surface of the disc as well as scratches. Although the scratches may look minor to our eyes the Wii can point blank refuse to play them. You can get discs cleaned with special machines which might be available at your local game store like Gamestation. Usually this will cure the problem but it is not guaranteed to solve it forever.
The other more severe problem is the laser becoming faulty within the drive itself. This has been something that has plagued the Wii since production and can occur at any time either within or out of warranty. Usually it means buying a new drive which retail for around £50. This is however the more extreme case and if I were you I would try getting your game discs professionally cleaned before rushing out and buying a new drive, you might be surprised by the results.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
