    Yeah, I understand what you're saying. I have a great interest in computers (and technology as a whole, I guess) so I know a bit about how the inner mechanics work. Unfortunately, I'm not great so I'd rather not open it and void the warranty (the warranty of even being able to send it in for repair, not the warranty like free repair).

    I have a friend who is amazing with this kind of stuff. He could probably fix it, but I'd rather not take the risk and void the warranty because that would mean I would have to buy a new Wii.

    My Wii is standing up, though I have tried placing it horizontal, but there was no difference.

    I didn't know Gamestop fixed things like this...I'd take it to them if they did. Or some place like Best Buy and their Geek Squad . If you think they're unreliable though, then I'll just pay the money and send it in to Nintendo.

    Thanks for the help!

    best buy is probably a better choice in terms of who would know more about how to fix them. After all, Best Buy has a trained personnel who is meant to deal only with this stuff, so I would assume they would be your best et. Though I dont know the cost of it at Best Buy.

    If they are unable to fix it, you should send it into Nintendo. It may be costly, but you can be sure they will get the job done right. It follows the "quality over quantity" concept. You can either pay a cheaper cost for a halfassed job that will make your Wii work for awhile only to need to get repaired again in a couple of months, or, you can pay full price and ensure it gets fixed entirely.

    Like I said, your choice.

    Glad I could be of assisstance!

    Cool. I'm glad you got it fixed. I would've done the same thing (or gotten my friend to do it), but I didn't want to open it only to NOT be able to fix it and have a useless Wii. I sent mine into Nintendo a week and a half ago and received it a few days ago. Works fine now.

    Probably not, but you could try it if you don't mind potentially messing up your Wii more.

    My Wii just started getting disk errors this week. It is actually my second Wii as I sent the first one away to Nintendo last year for repair and although they gave me another years waranty I didn't want to have to send it again. I bought the lens cleaning kit instead and it works fine now.

    If the Wii is out of waranty and getting drive errors then it will cost about $75 to get fixed. I'd advise against taking it to a repair shop for a cheaper repair, as buying a new drive costs about $50 alone (making Nintendo's $75 reasonable). If a repair shop charges you less than $75 then chances are you are getting a substandard repair job or an old used replacement drive that could fail again after a few months. Sending it to Nintendo is the best bet.
