Problem with wii disc drive! Is it common?
Question: Hi, earlier today i bought a nintendo wii. I get it home, plug it all in by following the instructions and then go to put a disc in. The problem is, i couldnt get the disc to go in. I read the manual and im sure that im doing it correctly (putting it facing right) but the machine doesn't take the disc in by itself, i have to push it in and then the eject button doesnt work! Apart from this the console works fine, ive set it up on-screen and also the blue light flashes when i try to insert a disc. I phoned the shop i bought it from and they said they haven't heard of this problem but take it back tomorrow and they'll take a look, but i was wondering if this is a common fault and is it an easy fix? P.S. i looked on youtube and found a video of a wii with the same problem so i know it's not just me.

No disk insertion problems here, but we had memory card slot problems. Had to return to Nintendo, they sent a refurbished one for replacement. Works fine now. If the store determines it is a problem, they may just replace. We couldn't replace because of Wii shortage. But, the turnaround for factory warranty from Nintendo was fast. They are great to deal with too. Good luck.
Your screen resolution is set to low. Right click the desktop and choose properties. Click on the "settings" tab and move the screen resolution slider to the highest your monitor will allow. Then change the "color quality" to highest (32bit). You may have to reboot for the settings to stick. Once this is done, go back to make sure the settings took hold and something isn't changing the settings back again. If this doesn't work, you can try to go to device manager and remove the display adapter, reboot and let windows detect it and install the drivers for it. It should find the best drivers available on your computer for the adapter. If you've played DVD's on your computer before and now it's not working, reinstalling the adapter can't hurt and my force the new settings stick.
It is not common. I think you should take it back because the things that pull and push it out are probably messed up. Thats why you are having such a hard time.
I agree. That's even before you look at the other mountains of technical and circumstantial evidence that blows massive holes right through the whole official account.
you'll be able to could desire to do a wii replace. in case you alfeady as much as date then i recommend consulting the nintendo help middle or in basic terms forget approximately it and revel interior the game as a exchange. additionally if have the time, please positioned me by way of fact the suited answer thank you
Launch MSConfig and disable anything on the start-up tab that you don't need to launch at start-up. Uninstall any programs you don't need anymore. Run CCleaner or the Windows all-in-one tool from tweaking.com. Also consider running an anti-spyware program such as Spybot Search & Destroy or Adaware. Malwarebytes Free is a great supplemental program for on demand scanning to back-up your your primary/resident AV program. If you don't have a resident program you are almost certainly infected. I urge you to do the following: The best way to remove viruses from your computer is to boot from something other that your harddisk. Fortunately, most AV producers provide what is called a Rescue Disk. This is a boot-able CD/DVD or flash drive. On a *clean* computer, download at least one of these programs, preferably two of them. (No AV program gets everything but not many can get past two reputable scanners.) Make the boot-able disk or flash drive, boot the computer with it. Now this image was made a while ago so you will want to update after you boot. Once it has updated set it to work scanning your computer. See the explanation of why this is the case below. Here are 4 of the many free Rescue Disks available: http://support.kaspersky.com/us/viruses/... http://www.bitdefender.com/support/how-t... https://www.zonealarm.com/forums/showthr... http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/supportcenter/how-to-create-a-rescue-cd One of the most difficult things about viruses is once you get one it is difficult to be sure you got rid of all of it/them. Resident programs are pretty effective at blocking initial infection if kept updated, but not so good at removing all of the viruses, especially the worst ones – root-kits. Think of the entire computer with all the software as a walled city with one outer wall – the rest of the world outside, the computer and the software inside – and then a series of inner walls with fewer and fewer people allowed within the next layer towards the castle in the middle. It is the center wall within which all the power of the kingdom resides. On a computer, in the middle, we have the kernel or heart of the operating system which talks directly with the hardware such as the CPU, motherboard, RAM, etc. Anything that wants to access any of the computer's hardware must go through the OS to get there. In the layers going out, each layer has increasingly less security to go through (and less authority) so that on the very outside where the applications are, there isn't a lot of security or authority to change things on the computer. Most viruses operate in the outer layers which makes it relatively simple to find, identify and remove. Malware performs various tricks in order to get access to the inner layers. There are, however, some viruses which manage to get access to the kernel level. These are called “Root Kit” viruses. Root is a reference to the center layer. In the Linux and Unix world, a root user has the keys to the kingdom and full control of everything on the machine. With Windows, of course, we don't have a root, we have administrators who actually have a little less authority than Root on Linux/Unix. The Root-Kits are able to get themselves launched at the same time as the kernel, sometimes as part of the kernel. This happens well before any secuirty software on the machine is launched. As a result, these root-kits have time to hide themselves and even hide other viruses from the security systems/software of the computer. The only reliable way to find them is to perform a virus search before the virus launches which means before the Kernel of the OS launches. By using something other than your hard drive to boot from you have full access to everything on the machine and nothing has time to hide because they never launch.
