Laser won't read disc

When I was removing the Wii from the box the way it was packaged it fall on the ground.  Not far but hit the floor.  The problem now is it makes a funny sound when I pt the disc in and won't read.  I'm from canada, in Manitoba.  The bigger problem is I can't retgurn it because I got it from my roommate for a really good deal, he gave me alot of stuff with it.  Anyways any ideas on what to do or where to take it?

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.

You will have to buy a new laser for it but if you take it apart it will void the warranty it maybe that something has come lose inside when you dropped it if you are ok taking it apart you migh find one of the runners damaged it shouldnt be to hard to replace the laser but you will have to shop around for one their easy enough to fit but if you dont want to risk damaging it any more then a computer shop will replace it for you but they will charge more if they have to get the part for you i suggest you check on ebay for one this is the only sollution but it might just be a bit of broken casing is rubbing on something check the disk is spinning if it is just check their is nothing broken or out of place their is not much else you can do sorry

It wouldnt turn on new batteries are in it. Screen funny

Is the screen funny like it's telling jokes? Or is it falling down funny? Im not sure, but if its dimly lit funny or too dark funny try this: hit the second key and then hold down up. This will darken the screen. If its too darkthen hit the second key and the press down.
Good Luck; Wish my calculator had a sense of humor.

Does not read the disc and makes a funny noise

If there is a bad noise coming from inside of your Wii when you are trying to load a game, either there is something stuck inside of the DVD drive or a part has fallen out of place. If you feel comfortable with it -- open up the Wii and check things out. Make sure the kids didn't put anything in the drive. If you're not comfortable with it, the following website does Wii repairs and sells the whole DVD drive unit for the Wii:

Jammed disc in wii

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.
