That usually comes up when the game isn't passing the security checks.
i have a wii that has not been modded in any way, and since last night i get a error saying
An error has occurred, press eject button, remove the game discs and turn off the power. Please read the wii operations manual for more info. Its a black screen with white writing. Can anyone give me a suggestion on what to do please ?
i do have a brand new laser but i dont want to fit it if its not going to help
its a orignal game of "wii play"
Does this happen right after putting the game in the drive? After you click on the disk channel? Does the banner for the game come up in the disk channel? Is it an out of region game? Any softmods or hardmods?
no mods what so ever when i put the disk in there is nothing on the disk channel then it trys to read the disk (laser making a clicking nose)then it comes up with the black screen with the white writeing saying the above message
You have a bad laser pickup or the top disk spindle came loose which causes a clicking noise and the disk can't spin up properly.
The solution is to disassemble the wii and either replace the entire drive or run the disk with it disassembled and try to find where the clicking noise is coming from. There is a small screw on the top disk spindle that you can loosen up and then reset the spindle until the clicking noise goes away. It could also be a number of other things with the drive (usually a basic mechanical problem) but you won't know until you disassemble it.
Like I said, replacing the drive would be the easiest fix.
ok thank you i will do it now and let you know
