Wii troubles? Answered

Ok, so my Nintendo Wii, which we have had for about 3 years decided to stop reading disks about 2 months ago. It played the downloaded games just fine but now we cant even get the Wii remotes to register on screen. I can get the hand to show up if i plug the Wii remote into our guitar hero 3 controller and use the analog stick on that but thats it. We keep it in our basement and we have 3 cats so its rather dusty. Im just wondering is it a software problem and would formatting it do anything or is it dust on the lens or some other hardware problem. I was going to format it to see if it would do anything but Im afraid that we might loose all of our save data, and I cant remember what my user name or password was for the Wii shop channel so i cant recover any of that save data either. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
