Wii Console - Not reading CD

Hello,
My son's Wii is almost a year and a half years old. We normally play it on weekends and school breaks. Yesterday (Sunday) it was working fine- he played Guitar Hero yesterday for more than an hour without any problems. We went to the store and felt lucky to find Wii Fit since we had forgotten to reserve it. After breakfast today, I ask my son to setup for me, but in the process, he discovered that it was now giving a disc read error. We have tried several disc (game and music) but nothing is accepted. The internet and SD reader still work. I don't hear any abnormal sounds. The disc is read with no problem. It doesn't spit it out until you hit the eject button.
I always thought if you had a bad CD player, that you would gotten some warning or some symtoms prior to this.
If it is a bad player, what are my options? Can it be fixed?
Thanks,
Barbara

    I have been doing my Wii Fit everyday for 2 weeks. Yesterday, I turned it on to go again and got the disc error. No strange sounds, nothing. It also won't play any of our other games.

    Ive had my Wii Console for less than a year and use it around twice a week. All of a sudden the console has been making a very loud whirring sound and has now been accompanied by "Cannot read Disk" error message.

    I can usually start a game but only get 2/3 minutes before the noise stops and the Wii Console cuts out! Have tried all of my games and the same thing happens!

    Please help ;0(

Hello, My sons Wii all of a sudden has a


Since you've already tried new cables, you might want to try another TV, or even different input ports on the back/side of your current one.

You could also look in your Wii's system settings for an "Output" section and make sure it's set to the correct compatability for whatever cords you are using. ( Although it might not have setting for video output )

But you will most likely need to contact Nintendo and find out if the internal electronics are still under a factory warranty.

My 2 year old son put a 2nd game in the Wii I did not realize this until I hit eject. The system was only turned on long enough to hit eject. But now it won't play any games just says to refer to manual....


With two discs in the system, it is more than likely that the discs are stuck. This would prevent the discs from spinning and it is possible that the discs are wedged. If you are handy, you could try to take the case off and remove the discs manually, otherwise I would advise taking it to a repiar shop.

Our Wii keeps on freezing up during play. When we first start everything works great! But then after about 15 min or so it just freezes up and you can't do anything. We try to shut it off and let if rest...


Well, if you only play it on the weekends barely, make sure you dont leave your wii on all week for nothing. Leaving it on may cause that problem. Cleaning the disc or the wii console may help with that problem. Hope that helps.

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.
