One of two things happend. The drive was damaged from the fall or one of the cables has come loose keeping you from ejecting the disk. the only way to see what is going on will be to open it up. You can also remove the disk once it's open with a little patience even if the drive is broken.

We got a game stuck in the wii consele....We tried ejecting the game as well as turning the game off...nothing is working.


You have to try out all these options first:

Turn the Wii off and on again after about 20 seconds. Press the eject button again.

Unplug the Wii's AC power supply if Step 1 doesn't work. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, and trying to eject the disc again after turning the Wii back on.

Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds.

Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles. If you hold the Wii upside down, it may help the disc fall out.

Call Nintendo and send the Wii back if non of these steps work. In most cases, a disc stuck in the Wii should be covered by warranty.

Nintendo says to see if power light was coming on, AC adapter reset. unplug from both ends for 90 seconds.Hold eject button for five or 10 seconds.

If none of this works, you might wanna try this, but it is not a preferred method, if you ask me, even though it can be done.

To remove a disc you'll need three sets of tweezers. And possibly a bobby-pin.
First you need to turn the Wii upside down (and preferably unplugged from a power source)
Second, using two sets of tweezers, press the small metal "guards" down. These are located just inside the mouth of the Wii. They're there to keep the disc from free falling, and inhibit their removal. They aren't locked and shouldn't be difficult to press down.
Third, you'll need to reach "up" through the middle of the mouth with the third set of tweezers to grab hold of the disc. I'd highly recommend using flat tweezers, not sharp ones as the disc may become scratched.
NOTE: The disc itself rests on the internal carriage (through the center hole of the disc) and if upside down, should fall into your tweezer's grasp easily. If it doesn't then you need a bobby pin to dislodge. Gently press the bobby pin on top of the disc and then grip the disc with the tweezers.
Finally, gently pull and the disc and push on the bobby pin and the disc will slide out easily .

This can be done with one person, but helps if you have an extra hand.
Good luck.

Hi, unfortunately my Wii fell onto the carpet last


i think that the laser inside the disk drive has skipped

lets say the laser moves from a to b (a is the start)(b is the end)

the laser might of jumped to b but the console still thinks it is at a and it keeps trying to move it towards b but it cant go any further because the laser tracks stop

you could open the console up and test the drive or replace the disk drive

Disc will not eject


There's probably only something jammed in the DVD drive... last one of these I fixed had a penny that my friend's daughter tried to stuff into the system. Once we opened up the Wii, the penny fell out and everything worked great. If there's nothing jammed in the drive, there may be gears or something in there broken. The following website has the full DVD drive... but I would try opening up the Wii first to see if something is jammed in there:

Wii console fell and now it wont eject the disc


sometime on consoles there is a small pin like hole next to the drive. a paper clip inserted into this and jiggled around might free the disc to open. works on computers might work for you. but if it fell looks like its f**ked

Wii wont accept disc


Go to the section on "screw types" to find the unique screw that was used to on the Wii. It's likely to be torx. T3, T4, T5, T6.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw

Then from there, you can go to an electronic store.

Cannot Load Disc


you might want to send it to nintendo even though this is probably the last thing you want to do but it will probably be the safest bet for something so small and delicate.

Two disc stuck in Wii


Thought we had 2 discs stuck in Wii, unable to take apart (no triwing screwdriver) my wife took a pair of tweezers and rotated the disc until it slipped out enough for her to grab it. After turning power back on, 2 more discs popped out on their own. Mission accomplished.

Wii eject button will not work


Well, Recently the same thing happened to me, My bro dropped my WII on the floor and the eject button on it got stuck i was soo mad!!!
I tried loads of ways nothing really hard, just follow this and hope fully the WII will eject:

1.Make sure the WII is stood up properly.
2.Then switch on the WII (As i said early the WII won't eject the CD.
3.Now look near the eject button if it is stuck follow (A) or if not coming out follow (B).
(A1).Right if it is stuck and not coming out then the top bendy bit of the eject button put your nail through it and press it down it should eject but after a while it did not work any more for me :(.
(A2).Now, Disconnect all the Cable's in the WII not TV leave it for a while (and don't smash it again!), After a while approx 5 Min's plug 'em back in, switch on the WII then press eject hopefully that will work :D.
(B1).Now if it does not come out either look inside the drive or WII (I don't suggest that) or just do what i did with A2 hopefully that will work.

Hope your WII works by now and enjoy ejecting cd's from your WII but 1 more thing before you go (DON'T BREAK YOUR WII AGAIN OR YOU WILL HAVE TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN :P AND IT MIGHT NOT EVEN WORK IF SMASH IT TO MANY TIMES!!! SO BE-CAREFUL!!!!
