    my wii has stopped loading/ejecting dvd. have dismantled it and notice there is no loading mechanism spinning on power on/off. feeding a dvd into the mouth does nothing...it does not load dvd. Pressing the eject button does nothing either, no movement.
    I have checked the two fuses on the dvd pcb for continuity with a digital multimeter, both are fine.
    is it possible the eject/load motor is burnt ? was thinking to feed voltage directly to the motor to see if it spins.....
    what else could cause the dvd to not load/eject discs...that can be checked next....

    confirmed
    - both 0603 fuse on dvd pcb board are OK
    - eject/loading motor works by supplying voltage directly to it
    - loading mechanism teeth work by rotating motor spindle (or pulling the rubber belt)

    but there is no movement at all when press eject button/during press the power button/or pushing a dvd in

    what could be the issue ?

    Hello.:)

    Maybe the Eject Button itself has an issue.I never had such things, so unfortunately I have no experience in repairing this.

    But maybe this helps you a little:

    It says from an SMD tactile button which is broken.

    Good Luck.:)

    thanks, I did check this ...button is working - clicks fine with faceplate removed. but no movement.
    maybe the dvd drive is dead.
    anyone have other ideas ?
