Cant get my disk out of the wii

My wii fell down about a meter to the floor i guess.
After that, I can't get my disk out.
It sounds as if it attempts to eject the cd, but then it stops and starts reading the disk again.. :?

Sounds like the mechanism inside of the drive is bent out of shape or needs to be reseated properly so it can accept and eject disks out. This is going to require opening up the Nintendo Wii and getting the drive out of there.

Here is what the inside of the wii drive looks like:

It could be that the plasic piece that holds the discs in place just needs to be moved back into the center position.

Heres a guide to taking apart the Wii:

Hope this info helps.

Sounds like the drive or the laser has been dis lodged and needs to be repaired. Simple if you have basic electronics repair experience. Shouldn't cost too much to be repaired at a service centre, unless parts need replacing.

Hope this has been helpful.

Hi, unfortunately my Wii fell onto the carpet last


i think that the laser inside the disk drive has skipped

lets say the laser moves from a to b (a is the start)(b is the end)

the laser might of jumped to b but the console still thinks it is at a and it keeps trying to move it towards b but it cant go any further because the laser tracks stop

you could open the console up and test the drive or replace the disk drive

My daughter has put a coin into the wii thru the disc slot an now i cant get it out can u help


That will be very difficult, the Wii requires a special screw driver to get the face plate off. It is called a Tri-Wing screwdriver, you can google for it if you'd like to attempt to fix it yourself.

There are two other ways you could try to rectify this. Unplug all cables from the back of the wii, turn it upside down so that the cd-rom slot is facing the floor, and shimmy it around a bit to see if you can get to the point where you are sure the coin is agains the cd drive. Then you could carefully attempt to stick in some small tweezers and try to grab out the coin. Just don't stick the tweezers in more than an inch or so, that way you avoid doing any damage. If you still can't get the coin out you should probably call Nintendo, they can fix it for you, and probably for free. Their number is: 1-800-255-3700

Jammed disc in wii


One of two things happend. The drive was damaged from the fall or one of the cables has come loose keeping you from ejecting the disk. the only way to see what is going on will be to open it up. You can also remove the disk once it's open with a little patience even if the drive is broken.
