Wii making loud noise when playing a disc

I just noticed that my wii is starting to make a grinding sound when playing a game. I hate this because I just had my xbox blow up and had to go thru all the hassel to get it fixed and now my wii sounds like it is the next thing to go. Also, has anyone had any problems with a xbox wireless headset. Mine just died and I have no idea why and of course xbox customer care was no help at all. All they told me was that it has a 90 day warranty. I guess I am just out 50 bucks. Thanks for the help.

Dear Darrin9873 and Bugbite250, I'm sorry to hear about your game system problems. But I hope this little advice helps. Do you keep your game disk finger print and scratch free. Do you use a lens cleaner for your game systems ? Always have an external fan blowing on your game systems while they running, heat kills electronics fast !

Now for the bad news ! Almost all electronics are made cheaply nowadays, in other words they use cheap parts that wont last very long, so the more you use it, the faster it will wear out or burn out ! They build things so that it will hopefully last a little longer then the warranty, and then break down so that we will have to pay them money to repair it or replace it ! That is the truth and this is a fact !!! One thing we can do is buy an extended warranty when one is available.

If we know were going to be using a product alot, and we don't want to be spending money any time soon on repairs or replacement, it's only wise to get a "good" extended warranty !

God bless you and I hope this advice helps some !

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?

I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.

Wii makes a buzzing sound when discs are running

The noise is the wii working extra hard to read the disk the lens might be dirty. Your wii might also have a bomb in it.............Just kidding. I would try cleaning the inside and if all is bad send it in to get fixed

Wii "Error has occured, eject game disc." for one CLEAN game

Nintendo is AWESOME about warranties. If you keep pushing the subject they will replace your unit free of charge. The drive mechanism is going out. It just so happens you haven't noticed it on any other game, it will happen with other games however.

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound

I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.
