Wii not reading discs

I bought a wii online at ebay for christmas, it came with 26 pre burnt games, or at least i think they are burnt, they look real. The wii is now not reading any games, new or the ones that came with it, too make matters worse i have the japaneese version so all the writing on the wii is in japaneese, the up side of that being it is all regions, so therefor i think it meqans i can play any game. Dont know what to do in regard to getting it fixed

Try cleaning the disks and make sure your inserting the disks with the wii on. you can also try resetting it there is a soft and hard way to reset it.
to soft reset your wii with the power on press and hold the reset button for 2 seconds( the second button from the top of the console)


The way to hard reset your Nintendo Wii is to UNPLUG it for 5 minutes.

if that doesn't cure your problem then i suggest taking it to a store and getting it fixed or if its still under warranty to return it to the manufacturer

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.

Got my wii for christmas, just opened it up yesterday 12-26 and it will not read the disc. message come up error has occured eject and unplug. this is very upsetting. please help


Hi,

Your problem could be that the disks you are running may be unknown or fake or maybe it's because your wii's regional code is different from the games regional code i.e. Your wii is from Australia and your games are from America. So if you got your wii from your current country that you live in and say you had some friends in another country who bought these games for you then they will not work on your wii. It is rather upsetting I do agree. I hope this works and you feel better.

I think that your Optical drive in the Wii is faulty or broken. I would call Nintendo and see what they can do for you. I have had this issue once when I was 12 back in 2002 on Christmas, My Playstation 2 would not read the games. Sad day for me. I hope you can get it fixed.

I don't think it should cost anything assuming you just got it on Christmas, it should be under warranty.
Regardless, try using a CD based drive cleaner. If that doesn't help, it's highly likely the laser is going bad.

Wii unable to read disc


One of two things has probably happened and is the case 9 out of 10 times. Your drive may have gone bad either due to a chip failure or a laser failure. It's also possible if the unit has gotten hot that the connection to the drive isn't making good connection anymore. This happens a lot. To fix it you would have to open the unit up. I don't recommend this if you have never worked on consoles or other electronics before. If the unit is under warrenty send it in for repair. Otherwise you would have to pay for the repairs. You can also sell the unit as broken on ebay and generally recover quite a lot of your money.

If you are good with repairs of electronics you may choose to open it up and do some troubleshooting. There are several places on the internet that outline how to open the wii and how to troubleshoot it's problems. If you decide to go this route you will void any warrenty you might have. However sometimes this is about the only solution people have without spending money for Nintendo to fix it.

Disc read error


if you bought it from wal-mart, you might have to get it fixed because wal-mart usually throws their merchandise into their truck. I mean they THROW it and dont care.
