If you have game cube games you may want to try them as well. If it plays the game cube games but not the wii games it sounds like the sensor inside is bad and you will need to contact nintendo so they can fix the sensor.

Console makes clicking noise when disc is inserted and disc will not start? Screen says error has occurred and to consult manual. It happens with every disc I insert


I Had the same thing happen! It has to do with the retention clip. Here you go:

After you fix it, don't leave game disks overnight or in for extended periods of time as that pulls the clip down.

Wii Disk Error


Unable to Read the Disc" Error, or Disc Not Recognized (Will Not Play Game Discs) Situation:
  • The Wii console will not play game discs (disc is not recognized)
  • System displays either error message "Unable to read disc" or "Disc could not be read"

Important!
  • If this problem happens very infrequently, it is normal and does not indicate a problem. A Wii Lens Cleaning Kit can be purchased to help keep the lens clean and prevent the situation from worsening over time.

  • Wii Game Discs are region locked, and can only be played on hardware from the same country where the game was released. (A European game cannot be played on a North American system, for example.)


What To Do:
  • The Wii console is only compatible with Wii and GameCube discs. It is not compatible with DVDs or discs made for other home consoles. Verify that the disc you are inserting is compatible with the Wii system.

  • An error message may display if the disc is ejected during play. Return to the HOME Menu before changing discs.

  • Verify that the console is placed correctly.

    • If the Wii console is lying flat, the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

    • If the Wii console is standing vertically, the power button should be on the top and the console should be in the stand. Note: Only Wii consoles with model number RVL-001 are intended to be placed vertically. (Learn more)

  • Verify that the disc is being inserted properly.

    • If the console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards.

    • If the console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.

  • Check the non-printed side of the game disc for dirt or severe damage (such as scratches or cracks).

    • If the disc is dirty, try cleaning the game disc. (How to)

    • If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced. Please click here for replacement options.

  • If the problem occurs with only one game disc, there may be a problem specific to that game. Click here to check our list of specific game issues.

  • Make sure only licensed accessories are being used. Unlicensed products do not undergo Nintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with our game systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games or accessories.

Put mario cart in and go through until it says error occured eject and turn off etc but it will not turn off


This error occurs if you have a problem with the disc. This normally happens if the wii console cannot read or recognize the game disc and freezing usually occurs after the error. You need to restart the wii console if this happens. Also check the disc for any visible damage and try cleaning if dirt is present. If this happens on all or majority of your games, there could be a problem with your wii's disc drive, but if it only occurs on a specific game then the problem is with the disc itself. Good luck!

The Wii will not read the disc


"Unable to read disc" error happened today for the first time on my Wii. I positioned it horizontally and tapped on the top while it was reading a disc and it started the game. This temporary solution might bring you immediate, but probably not long lasting satisfaction.
