I'm getting the infamous "Unable to read disc" error on my Wii. I got this error once a few months ago. I did everything I could to try and fix it. Frustrated, I unplugged the power cable from the Wii and went to sleep. The next day, my Wii started reading discs and everything was great. I've been unplugging the power cord after use ever since and have not experienced any problems.
Well, a few nights ago, I forgot to unplug it, so it was on standby all night. The next day I started getting the error once again. I didn't think it was "just a coincidence" so I decided I would leave my Wii unplugged overnight and see what happened the next day. Well...nothing happened. I did and still am getting the disc error.
I take extremely good care of my discs. None of them are scratched or smudged at all. I have tried many games and I get the same error for each one, so I'm thinking it's my Wii. The disc will spin inside of the Wii for about 4 seconds and then stop. My Wii has never frozen up, so I can do everything on my Wii except read discs. Anyone have any ideas? I don't really want to send it in to Nintendo yet.
