Wii can't read Wii discs?

I went out and purcahsed Brawl today. It's a bit scratched up but nothing serious. Pretty average really. My Wii seems to be having some problems though. It READS the Brawl game disc, but when I actually try to play it brings up the "Cannot read Game Disc. Please look at Wii manual for more information" error thing.

 

I tried another Wii game too, which is not scratched at all, and it did the same exact thing. Could it be the heat? I live out in Colorado so it's dry and warm out. I noticed the Wii gets warm faster than it used to, but maybe that's just me. Could it be the lens? Maybe there is dust on it... I already tried cleaning the disc too: Cotton cloth, water, straight strokes. I haven't got a clue!

Try using the Wii Lens Cleaning Kit, available online at Nintendo's online store. If that fails, then the disk drive will have to be repaired.

Re: Wii can't read Wii discs?

I think starting with cleaning the lens is a good idea, actually, If your Wii is having problems reading multiple game discs it's entirely possible the lens is dirty and not able to read the games. The Wii Lens Cleaning Kit is Nintendo's own kit, so if you follow the directions it should do it's job to properly clean it.

 

If you clean that and clean the game discs (a soft cloth wiping from the inside of the disc straight out, NOT in circles) and still have issues with multiple games, then it may be a bigger problem. Should that be the case it would probably require a repair. However, for now I'd try to clean the lens and see if that helps anything.

Try sending your wii in to Nintendo, I had the same problem, and according to the FAQ's ive seen, the older wii's have trouble reading double sided discs like Brawl, and the only way to fix it is to send it in to Nintendo or hope the cleaning kit will fix the laser that reads the discs. Hope that helps.

Re: Wii can't read Wii discs?

It's probably the disk that's damaged, you should try using it on a friend's Wii (a friend that owns Brawl and plays on their Wii) and see if it works, if it does then your Wii needs a repair, if it doesn't the Brawl needs to be replaced.

Dear Waffles,

Re: Wii can't read Wii discs?

Same here with Just Dance 2 and Epic Mickey.  Nintendo has really screwed this up and has all the ear markings of a failed update.  Demand they fix it.  Tweet it, Facebook it and demand satisfaction.
