    Try a Gamecube disc. If that doesn't load then youw Disc Drive is gone. Send it to Nintendo and they will fix it. If you can get rid of that softchip.

    I had the same problem a few months ago. They give me a new Disc Drive within a week. My Hombrew was not affected at all.

    Nintendo doesn't even turn the wii on.
    I know because if they did, they would test it, which they don't.

    True Story: I sent my broken wii to nintendo, they charged me $120, said they have fixed it and sent it back in the same condition.

    You don't have to worry bout it being brand new, but uninstall the channels to be safe.

    ^

    And you're okay with them ripping you off like that?

    Did you get a refund?

    Not true, after they replaced my disk drive there were two 1 minute logs of SSBB that they used to test if it was working properly.

    funny you should ask this...but i have bought numerous wii's off the internet with this exact problem it sounds like. There are two tabs at the front of the DVD drive that move up when the disc is inserted. If there are impatient people or kids that have a frequency to "jam" discs into the wii, then these tabs will bend up quite easily, and therefore the disc cant be seated, and cant spin up correctly causing a chainsaw sound (the edge of the disc hitting the metal tabs that are bent). All you need to do is bend the tabs back down and voila! The disc should spin and be happy again!

    Not saying this is it, but it is the case with the last couple wii's i bought
