    Hi,
    My Wii had some problems reading games, so I disassembled it to clean up the laser. A small piece fall off my Wii and I don’t know where it belongs.

    Here are the pictures of the piece.

    The piece measure 3.5 cm by 1 cm (1.37 by 0.39 inches )
    I tried to start my Wii without the small piece of plastic. I can insert and eject disc but when I insert a disc the Wii mechanism “shallow” the disc and put it in the middle of the Wii but the disc don’t start spinning !!
    I can still play WiiWare.
    I need help so I can fix my Wii; I’m a student so I don’t have a lot of money.

    Thank You
