I have owned my wii for quite a while (two years I think?) and this is the first time I've had problems with it. I was playing Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer on the wii, when suddenly an error message inturrupted my five kill streak. Anyway, it said something like, "An error has occurred, please remove the game disc and remove the power supply to the wii, and restart." I did what it said, and everything seemed fine, but when I put the disc back in the wii did not respond, other than saying "Cannot read game disc" when I went to the disc channel. It didn't do any of the usual clicking that it does when there is a disc in there. I'm guessing the disc drive is fried? Anyone have any ideas on what to do?
Try using a Lens cleaner. You can buy one from this site or at a local store such as : Walmart, Target, Game Stop or bestbuy. And use a soft cloth ( such as what you get with glasses ) and LIGHTLY wipe the disk.
No none of the discs I put in read. Like I said, it doesn't even attempt to read them. Just... nothing. I was just hoping there was some solution to this problem that wouldn't require me to give nintendo 75 dollars to fix what should not have broken in the first place. I mean... this IS nintendo... Not microsoft.
Hey.......stuff happens. My Wii stopped working without warning too, but I got it fixed. If the warranty of the Wii (which is like a year and a half's worth) hasn't expired yet, the repair will be free.
