Question about Nintendo Wii Console
Hi All - My son put 2 cd inside the console and I got them out, but now it won't load any CDs. It just makes a load clicking noise, but won't take the CD. Any ideas? Thanks, Eddy
Continuous clicking could be a few gear-related issues: -if the pinion gear is slipping against the rack for the disc-load mechanism, you can try to re-align the rack (hopefully it was just forced out of place and can be clicked back). i would suspect this if the noise is relatively quiet and very fast. -if something is jamming the load mechanism, like the rack is stuck, the pinion gear may be clicking over the teeth of the rack. i would suspect this if the noise is loud and slower. Either way, you'd probably need to open the console. )=.

Clicking sound is normal, but do they stop or continue? my Wii make some clicking sound when loading up but then its stops. What I suggest is to see if your son damaged the discs and not the console, try to clean them or try them in a different console to see if they work. If they work in a different console that's means your son broke something when entering the 2 discs... and it need to be repaired. Here are some instructions of how to clean your discs: 1. Use a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean the disc from center towards the edges. do not use a circular motion % DO NOT use paper. 2. Make sure the game is dry, then re-insert it and see if the error occurs again. 3. If you make the game working after cleaning it but still have some problems that might mean that the disc is damage and you should try to replace it. Like I wrote before if cleaning doesn't work or it works in another console, you should repair it. P.S please use you user name from the beginning Eddy1

Tips for a great answer:
hey there carlton
This problem is very
common with the WII but don't worry there are many websites out there
that can help with this problem.
I personally reccommend
this one as it has been very successful for me and many others.
I know this can help
to do when your Wii Has problems with reading disks and you have
tried cleaning the disk.
does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it
just needs the laser to be readjusted.
can send this off to Nintendo if your still in warranty because it is
included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you,
fix it and return the Wii to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6
you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in
a new Disk drive would cost around $75 for a compatible one and you
may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.
I recommend is a Wii
Repair Guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you
will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far
less than option 2 & 3
