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?

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.
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.
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.
