The problem is with the wires on the intake motor board. The wires connecting to the board are loose and need to be re-sodered, or are fried. But its inside the blu ray case. It's the gray battery looking thing with the corkscrew on it and the board that's attached to the triangle shape board.

My little baby cousin put abouttwo cd in now it dose not come out

If your Wii is still under warranty, take it back to the shop. If you want to fix it yourself... Are both CD`s completely in the drive? Or is at least one sticking about just a bit? If so, get a pair of tweezers and try to pull it out. You could push the eject button for the Wii to give you an additional push.

I'm looking at my Wii and I can't really see how can two DVD`s be pushed in at the same time. Unbelievable! If they are both completely inside the drive, I think service is your only option. Even if you disassemble your Wii, you would still have to disassemble its drive, too, and that could be very risky. If it's not broken already.

If you don't want to take it to the service, maybe the solution for you is softmodding it and loading games of an external HDD. I could help you with that if you wish so. The usual way is to rip your games throught the Wii's drive, but you could do it on your PC as well.

Put in a game and it says reading dvd and will not play but it will play a dvd if you put one in

Has this happened to all of your dvd games? Make sure your dvd game is genuine and not pirated copy as the Xbox is sensitive to those kind of cds.

Xbox will will not play any games or DVD's.

try putting the game disc into your game console and close the lid with your hand without pressing the close lid button. hold the disc tray with your hand and turn off the game console. Turn on the game console. If problem still persists try cleaning the xbox with a blower or a vaccum. Pm me if problem still continues. Thank you .

Dvd rom will not work

The cover is warped. There needs to be just the right tension on the arm that lifts the eye of the drive to read disks properly try pushing down on the cover when you have it apart. So that you bend it alittle.

Can't get the disk tray to open

Take your face plate off and see if there is a small pinhole around the dvd drive and put a paper clip in it and push. If not you could give it a little bit of a whack on top of the dvd drive, I know a few people that have done that and it worked.

Playstation2 not working properly

Hi there. Are the older games you're trying to play CD games ? They might be :) The laser lens in such consoles can be fried on the dvd part, but still read CD's. Have you tried, to read a DVD Movie in it ? I bet it doesn't work either. The slimlines are infamous for laser burnout, and god they're quick to burn. You can try to clean your laser lens with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol, but i'd say you're already out of luck. The optical lens is quite easy to replace in those units. They can be found on ebay and on various websites for 20$, and if you can play a bit with a phillips screwdriver, chances you'll be able to replace it yourself with a bit of patience are good enough. If you need additional help just ask, hope that helps ! cheebster.
