Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Probably a dirty laser. You'll have to use a laser cleaning disc made for Wii. If that doesn't do it then it's most likely a bad laser. Not an easy self fix for a newbie. ?warrenty? then send it in to Nintendo.(you can find out on their web site) If not, then replacing the laser yourself or finding someone who can is the best bet. Actualy kinda cheap to buy a new laser(ships from Hong Kong), There are other causes for read errors, but I've found the laser to be the culprit most of the time. Could be just dirty,.. dust & cigarrette smoke can be cleaned with the cleaning discs but , the best way is of course to open the Wii and wipe the laser with a Qtip soaked with alcohol. But a Wii is not all that easy to open up. ($7 for cleaning disc, $9 for new laser, $90 to get Nintendo to fix it.)
