Default URGH!!! Wii Disc Read Problems

We got a Wii Christmas 2008. (so about 4 years) It stopped working ~1 year ago (november 6th, 2011) and by stopped working I mean doesn't read discs.

Just today, I updated the system and now when I run a disc, it goes to the black screen with "eject disc, turn off system" and stuff.

According to Nintendo, I should send it to them and fix it. Only problem is that costs $75.

I have two choices:

- never use the wii again
- fix it at home or something cheap

Any ideas?

Well, there is a certain holiday usually associated with generous gift giving (especially from parental units) so I would suggest....
Getting a new Wii U system.

Then everybody wins.


In the mean time, you could try to Google around for a cheapy home-fix. If the alternative is simply never playing again, might as well go for it.

Psst, the Wii U is backwards compatible!

But yeah it's probably worth a look online for a cheap fix
