I know you guys already have a post that mentions this oddity, but have you heard anything else about the wii console's sound just not working anymore for no reason? A week ago, my wii worked fine, sound and all. Today there's no sound from the console. I tested the wii remotes and they have sound. There's no sound on the wii menu and onward.
Any ideas on how much it costs to fix this? Any word on why this is happening? I see 10 people have posted about this.

If it doesn't read any cds, you could try asking Nintendo to repair it. I don't know how much that costs.
if you are smart, you read instructions thoroughly and you are willing to risk your wii to a small possibility of bricking you could try and softmodding your wii to play backup games through your external hard drive or sd card.
but i don't recommend it unless you are willing to put a lot of time and research into softmodding your wii.
Reboot your wireless internet and move your Wii closer to the source of the wireless internet. If this doesn't work, you can purchase a LAN extension for you wii and hook it up to the internet directly through a wired connection. Let me know if you need anything else.
This is a perfect example of needing to reset the power cable. I know you've already tried unplugging it, but here is how you reset it. Unplug your power cable from the wall and your Nintendo Wii for 10-15 minutes so that it isn't plugged into anything. Then plug it in. This sounds silly, but it really should solve the problem. Good luck and please rate.
I don't think changing the TV would make any difference because the console isn't even loading up the disc. To play an NTSC game you would have to use a console from an NTSC area like the US. I'm sure Japan is NTSC as well. I've heard about Freeloader. Ever since I bought an Action Replay cartridge for my N64 I've never trusted Datel (who manufacture Freeloader). It really mucked up my N64. On the other hand I know many people who use Datel products and the like with no probs. I suppose if you got nothing to lose then try Freeloader.

If you take apart the Wii very carefully, you might be able to get the game out (which you will most likely never be able to play again because the clicking noise is most likely the disc being rubbed against something) without causing damage to the Wii. Doing this is risking causing damage to your Wii (and yourself if you are too dumb to un-plug it.) so if you have bought your Wii less than a year ago,
Nintendo of America Inc. ("Nintendo") warrants to the original purchaser that the hardware product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty occurs during this warranty period, Nintendo or a NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER will repair the defective hardware product or component, free of charge. The original purchaser is entitled to this warranty only if the date of purchase is registered at point of sale or the consumer can demonstrate, to Nintendo's satisfaction, that the product was purchased within the last 12 months.
if you purchased your Wii more than a year ago,

sounds like slot disc loading mechanism gearing is misaligned.. Slot drives are difficult to fiddle with, I suggest you try to get this repaired under warranty, (don't mention that you dropped it though, just say it stopped working)
