Can't read any disk for long ( all new wii games)

Cant read any disk for long or at all, i've tried unplugging it, reseting, and everything inbetween. i'm a IT for Dell, so i thought i could figure it out. Is there any trick or setting to fix this problem.
thanks for your time
sincerely,
scott

Unfortunately there is no solution as it is probably a bad disk drive. If it was your computer I'm sure you could replace it in under 5 minets, alas its a Wii and there is nothing to be done. I had the same problem with my first Wii and ended up just calling Nintendo. They replaced it under warranty. Try giving them a call, Nintendo Consumer Service: 1-800-255-3700 They are often helpful.

When I insert a disk into my wii console, it will accept the disk, make a clicking sound and then eject the disk. This happens with every wii game i've tried. Any suggestions?


my friend,Christina, had the same problem, but didn't handle it right. SHE threw it on the ground. Don't do that. Just take it into GameStop. Then you can either get it fixed, or you can trade it in for a new Wii.

What do i do if i cant get games to load


First off, make sure the disks are clean and scratch-free. Also, make sure you're inserting them with the label side up (or to the right if your wii is standing up). If all of this is fine, you may try unplugging your wii and let it sit there, unplugged, for about 5 minutes to let the console reset.

My wii isnt working. It won't read any of my wii games. I just got a new game and I tried it and it wont play. I tried your troubleshooting and it didnt work. I turned it off, left it off for a bit,...


Hello there,

It wont read your discs simple because the lens could hardly read them because it is dirty and probably needs cleaning. Try running a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. Then try playing those discs again. If this does not work, then you might need to clean the lens manually by disassembling the wii, taking out the casing and cleaning the lens with a swab damped in an alcohol. Just gently wipe the swab on the lens surface in a circular manner and let it dry. Then put everything back and try playing those discs again.

By the way, this video might give you an idea how to disassemble the wii.

Ive bought a game for my Wii before nd it worked fine and now it wont work it just keeps saying that it cant read the disk anymore


Hi there, you could try a few different things some harder and less practical to do than others so try in this order
  1. If it's just one game your having issues with the ensure game disk is clean and free from scratches (use the microfiber cloth to clean)
  2. Unplug Wii from the power for 2 minutes, plug back in and power up and test game.
  3. If all games are having this issue then laser in your Wii may be faulty so contact nintendo to get repaired here.

My wii console wont take any disks.I try to put the disk in but it wont go in. The light lights up but nothing happens after that.Everything else works, like it will go to the menu screen but i cant play...


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide.........

Wii not reading discs


try cleaning the disks and make sure your inserting the disks with the wii on. you can also try resetting it there is a soft and hard way to reset it.
to soft reset your wii with the power on press and hold the reset button for 2 seconds( the second button from the top of the console)


The way to hard reset your Nintendo Wii is to UNPLUG it for 5 minutes.

if that doesn't cure your problem then i suggest taking it to a store and getting it fixed or if its still under warranty to return it to the manufacturer

Wii will do everything but it won't play games.....


I had the same problem. No new games would play but the old games played fine. I clicked on the spinning disc icon (where the game should come up) and it prompted me to do an update. I accepted. Once the update was complete (took about a minute or 2) the new games worked fine.
