The game cube games keep getting stuck what do i do?


clear the front panel of any dust, etc.
lay the unit on its side instead of standing it up.

Another thing you may want to look at is coins. If you have children, check for coins in the machine. I have seen that happen before which makes discs lodge in the units.

Best thing to do when playing GC games int eh wii thoguh is to lay it flat.

My granddaughter used my Wii dvd slot as a coin holder or a slot machine, and now my wii dvds will not come out. We took a dime out last week, and inserted a dvd without incident, but now that dvd is stuck...


you want to take off the side of the wii with a screwdriver (or whatever you might need) and see if you can see any coins lodged in there. If all else fails call nintendo and see if they can help you.

My wii makes loud noises and when i turn the game on it says to eject disc turn off wii and look at the manuel. Sometimes the game will load but will shut off during and says disc can not be read. How can...


Sounds like something is stuck inside of your Wii's DVD Drive... someone may have stuck something in the slot? Coins? credit card? paper? Etc... sounds like this is preventing the disc from being read properly. Either this, or something inside of the drive has become broken.

The following website sells the DVD drive mechanisms and does repairs on the Wii as well:

My son just put 2 dvds in ps3 and now they are stuck?


Try to press the Eject Button for 20 seconds and i think that will do a force eject
the other way is the paper-clip! Straightend a large paper clip, then with some needle-nose pliers created a tiny L-shaped hooked (about 3/16 or 1/8 of an inch). Inserted the hook side of the clip into the disc slot along the edge. Carefully moved the clip around until I located the hole in the disc, then gently pulled the disc out. Piece of cake, took about 2 minutes!

My daughter has put a coin into the wii thru the disc slot an now i cant get it out can u help


That will be very difficult, the Wii requires a special screw driver to get the face plate off. It is called a Tri-Wing screwdriver, you can google for it if you'd like to attempt to fix it yourself.

There are two other ways you could try to rectify this. Unplug all cables from the back of the wii, turn it upside down so that the cd-rom slot is facing the floor, and shimmy it around a bit to see if you can get to the point where you are sure the coin is agains the cd drive. Then you could carefully attempt to stick in some small tweezers and try to grab out the coin. Just don't stick the tweezers in more than an inch or so, that way you avoid doing any damage. If you still can't get the coin out you should probably call Nintendo, they can fix it for you, and probably for free. Their number is: 1-800-255-3700

Coins placed in the disc slot of the Wii.


I would not advise using the drive if there are any loose objects inside. Doing so would void your warranty, cause damage to the wii, and possibly even bodily injury. If the disc should come into contact with the loose object while spinning at high speed, the disc could shatter and the shards may actually break through the drive casing.

A loose object, if it catches something traveling at high velocity, can easily damage the casing and the wii remember

The only practical solution is to remove the drive from the wii and obtain a replacement. It would be prohibitive to try to fish out the loose object, since you might damage the internal components in doing so. you will need to call Nintendo ( 1-800-255-3700) and see if they can fix it or guide you through taking the disk drive out

I don't think they will slide out if you turn the MBP on edge. I would take it to the Apple store and be prepared for a nice bill. I hear kids also do this in the disk player in the car to get it fixed It won't be cheap, I 'm afraid,

At the very least the drive will need to be removed, I fear. It may actually have to be replaced. A few hundred dollars, I would guess.

Good luck

From the official Nintendo website:

"Object inserted into the Disc Slot If an object is inserted into the Disc Slot, it will automatically be pulled in, and it won't be possible to eject it. Do not attempt to open the Wii console or otherwise try to remove the object, as it may result in further damage to the console.
The Wii console will need to be repaired. Because this type of damage is not covered under Nintendo's warranty, there will be a charge for the repair. Please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."
