Hello everyone. I just wanted to ask for help and advice in our almost 8 months old. Wii. This is my first post so feel free to move this thread if its out of place. thank you very much. On to the problem. Our Wii which we just used for less than 2 months, and stayed in a Wii bag for almost 6 months, is having a problem reading game discs. After a long time on standby. I decided to play mario with my sister 2 days ago. It was showing, a black screen and a message, error game disc cannot be read. Please eject the disc and refer to the manual for troubleshooting. Something like that. Can't remember the exact phrase. It kept on doing that for almost a couple of tries. I looked on to the manual and said turn of the system for 10 minutes and maybe It might work. We've done that and It still wouldn't work. There was this spinning sound followed by a couple of clicking sounds.Then after a couple of hours. We decided to try it again, and it worked this time. We played about almost 2 hours. then decided if the bundled wii sports would work. We went back to the menu. Ejected the disc then put the Wii sport and surprise. It didn't work again. it took some time again for it to work like about 30 tries with plugging and unplugging the power cord and waiting for hours and still we the disc that ran was still mario. Can somebody please help us? I personally would just want to know so I know if I can personally fix it or send it off to a store that probably repairs Nintendo Wii. From where I live, I found out, Its way too far from Nintendo's reach so no Nintendo service center is around. Looked up a bit around google and some said it could be the lens (might be dirty) but then, Its practically almost brand new. Thank you very much again and God bless.
