To clean the lens accessing directly to the lens pick up you will need to disassemble the Nintendo. This operation invole risk of further damage to your WII, particularly if you are not exeperienced in servicing electronics. My suggestion is the following.
First try cleaning it with a dvd cleaner and cleaning solution, this operation involves no risk.
Check also if you are covered by guaranty, and eventually contact Nintendo to have your WII serviced.
If you want to proceed in opening the Wii, here are videos showing disassemblage procedure.
My strong suggestion remains not opening the Nintendo by yourself, unless you have done this many times on different devices.

Regards

Wii not reading ant discs


ken3_2000

In regards to your Wii not reading disks most likely your laser is dirty or you are having trouble with your drive its self.

They make a laser cleaning kit for the Wii you may try using to clean the laser. Note DO NOT USE a DVD/CD cleaner disk on the Wii. Only use ones that are made for game systems. Alot of times the lense for the laser is made different for game systems and if you use a standard one it can scratch the lense.

If this does not work then I would see if you are still in warranty. If you do then contact Wii support about getting an RMA.

If not you will need to look into replacing the drive. (There are several walk throughs on the Internet.) If you do not think you can do it your self then you may be able to find a local repair shop that can do it for you.

Hope this helps
