    If you have the right tools, just pop open your wii and use a lint free cloth or a Qtip and windex.

    I had the same issue with mine. Cracked it open cleaned the lens with the windex'd Qtip. Did it a couple of times. Done.
    Works great now.

    Depending on the solvent you use to clean the lens with and the amount you use, the lens can become saturated and you will have to wait for it to dry. That is why I use Windex for those in North America as it has amonia which dries quickly and prevents streaking. But any glass cleaner should do the trick, just wait for it to dry.
