How do I find out what is causing my wii troubles? Answered
My wii has worked ine for the four years I've owned it. Gradually, it stopped reading discs one by one. Some would work while others wouldn't. The number of working ones decreased until it is now zero. When inserting a disc, the wii shows an animation of two spinning discs. They stop spinning and the screen displays "Unable to read the disc". I vacuumed at every opening I found in the wii case. This made the discs spin for MUCH longer than before, but they still fail. As far as Google can help me, the problem could be
1. Dirty laser
2. Broken laser
3. Broken disc drive
How do I narrow down the problem to know exactly what the problem is?
(I realize Instructables isn't the best place to ask this. But I know you people are smart, so I thought I might get some help. Thanks!)
EDIT: I've now learned, with the help of Steve, that my problem is probably a dirty laser. My only problem is the tri-wing screwdriver. Where can I get it offline?
