The eject button on my wii won't hit the switch; I can press it, but it won't do anything and it doesn't feel like the button in pressing anything. Is there any way to fix this or do I have to send it to nintendo?

try this 1st
"Turn the Wii off with the Wiimote (so that it completely powers off and is not active). then hit the eject button"
and filing that that you need to remove the front panel and there is a manual paper clip button......it sounds like the button is broken how to here http://www.consolezombie.com/Wii/Wii-Case-Opening-Tutorial.html hope that helps
Unplug it, then press and hold the eject button. While holding the eject button down, re-apply power and turn on the unit. If the unit senses the eject button pressed, it should eject anything in the drive.
You will find a small whole in front of the disc. Quite small, say a niddle head size just take a pin approx 3 inches and poke it slowly inside. You shall feel the pushing of a soft touch feather button like on your keyboard and your CD will come out. Don't forget to push eject button before poking the pin.
and kindly do rate my solution.
When you hit eject do you hear it attempting to push out the disc? It may be blocked by something. If it is not attempting to push out the disc then something isn't registering with the eject button. In this case, power down the wii, unplug all plugs from the back, wait 90 seconds or so, plug in just the power plug and hit the eject button (before hitting power or anything else). If it still does not try to eject then either the button is broken or the disc drive in the wii has died.
It is still probably under warranty from Nintendo, they can fix it for free for you. If anything, give them a call at:
Maybe because the eject button is off the micro switch and you need to either press it hard or get a wii professional to take off the eject button and replace it to where it will touch the micro switch.
