How to troubleshoot the wii


  • 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.
  • 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.
To clean disc:
  1. Dampen a clean, soft, cotton cloth with water.
  2. Use straight strokes and wipe the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  3. Using a dry part of the cloth, repeat step 2 to dry the disc.
  4. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii console.
If the disc is damaged or scratched, it will need to be replaced or you can possibly taken it to a game store or movie store to get it resurfaced (buffed)

Not taking the disk in


Hi,
The most common reason for the Wii not taking discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!
Hope this will help...

I think my son has put something in the wii as it was working fine but now when i insert a disc it makes a buzzing noise and ejects the disc???


you may need to get a trigram screwdriver to undo the funny screws in the wii and take a look, mine had a piece of paper in it and it sometimes stopped discs coming out.

Wii wont accept disc


Go to the section on "screw types" to find the unique screw that was used to on the Wii. It's likely to be torx. T3, T4, T5, T6.....

Then from there, you can go to an electronic store.
