The wii functions as normal when playing Virtual console games, Netflix, etc.
When I insert a disc or little after I've loaded the game I am presented with "an error has occured. Please eject the disc, turn the power off, and try again."
Are there any remedies that those who have gone through this before might have? I've tried a few differnt discs and I'm presented with the same message sooner or later. I've tried nothing like blowing in the disc slot, or anything else. My first thought was to ask the advice of those who have gone before me.
Thank you for your time.
Either a couple of things could be happening, 1. all your disc are destroyed and need to be clean and stuff, 2. your disc scanner thing is broken and your wii needs to be sent to nintendo, or three your putting in the disc backwards ( meaning the pictures showing the wrong way.
It sounds like your Wii's disc lens may just need a simple cleaning.
I'd recomend using a Wii Cleaning Kit. You can get one on Nintendo's online store. But if the cleaning kit doesn't work, then you may need to send your Wii to Nintendo for repairs.
This is what I was looking for. I sent my wii in once before because it would simply not turn on, and in return i got a refurbished Wii with all my data wiped.
Needless to say I wasn't too happy about this, so I'd like to try some home remedies(Like cleaning the laser.) Before sending it in.
I'll order this and give it a try, unless somebody else has some other advice or other cleaning solutions?
