Our Wii console keeps saying that it is unable to read the discs. We have tried cleaning the discs, reformatting the console etc but nothing seems to be working. Can you help?

Try the Nintendo web site trouble shooter for Wii. At the end of that trouble shooter you will have the option to send it to Nintendo for a fix.(about $80) You may have a warranty. It's most likely a bad Laser. Not an easy do-it-yourself job, but there are repair shops online and around town that will fix your wii for a bit less money than Nintendo.

I just plugged in my wii and got it connected it says unable to read the disc I have followed cleaning the disc and trying brand new games, nothing seems to be reading


The laser needs to be either cleaned or replaced. The cleaning kits you buy from the store usually doesn't work so I would recommend saving your money.

If you need the Wii laser and willing to repair the system yourself, we can provide the part to you to install.

If you are not one to do it yourself and take the system apart, we repair video game consoles and get systems from all over the nation. Just look up Wired Extreme on Google.

If you have tried another disc and still no luck then the laser "eye" is dirty. I would open the slot and try to gently spray canned air, or Air Duster to clean the eye. If still no effect call nintendo.

Unable to read disc


Hi,

I'm sorry you're experiencing this. This means your system's laser is weak and will need to be replaced. You can open your WII system and clean the laser with a cotton swab (only a drop of rubbing alcohol) and this may help it just a little, But a replacement would be best.
