My Wii will not play any games except my new used game Metroid Prime 3. It used to play all my games, but it does not read them anymore. Are there ways to clean the console?

Hi there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the DISK READ ERROR

The main cause is Hardware failure due to overheating or just simple wear & tear.

You will need to perform simple maintenance to your console

You can send your Wii to Nintendo to fix this. If your in warranty its free. If not the repair cost would be $150 and a wait time of 4-6 weeks

The other solution is what I did and the way more and more gamers are turning nowadays is a Good Wii Repair Guide that shows you how to fix the problem yourself. I have never had a problem with this one so far for over a year, well worth it. Its my most recommended guide online.

Well this is all the help and advice I have on this so good luck.

You can get back to gaming

Please come back and rate my post if you find it useful

Many thanks

Chris Foley

My wii will not read any of the disc


You can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. Also, some older Wii units have trouble with dual layer discs, which pack more info onto a disk (Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime use dual layer discs). If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit for that too.

If after cleaning its lens your Wii still can't read any disks then you'll want to contact Nintendo.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Why wont metroid prime 3 work on my wii


it is most likely that you hav a corrupted disc. it is either scratched on the bottom of the disc (known as the data side) or the data on the disc itself is corrupted.

When i play metroid prime it says the data is cruppted


Sounds like you may have a Bad Memory Card. Is it doing it to all of your other games as well? If so, then try getting another memory card and doing it with that one. You may have a messed up disc as well, this could cause the save function to be screwed up. Try using the card is the Second Memory Card slot instead of the first one, you may have a bad Memory Card Slot as well. If none of this works, try taking your game to a friends house and using their Wii/Gamecube to see if the problem still exists. If so, your issue is either the game or the Memory Card.

Wii makes squeaking/chirping noise


This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo

If you want to repair it yourself you need a wii dvd drive. Any version works.
