Accepted Answer

  1. Unless you know what you are doing, never open a system. And if you do, never clean a laser lens by blowing onit, moisture from your breath will only make matters worse.

    I suggest trying a cd-lens cleaner. I have a Recoton one I use whenever my Wii has trouble reading a disc.

  1. It will void the warranty. Also, send it to Nintendo. They aren't just cleaning it out, they're upgrading the disc read laser that they're not telling anybody about. Some of them have trouble reading dual-layered DVD's, which Brawl is. That's definitely something you can't do yourself, so if you are having Brawl trouble, you have to send it in to Nintendo.

  2. Nintendo will fix something like that with ease, and if your still under warranty, they'll do it for free. You could always do damage yourself, witch also voids the warranty so it can't be fixed for free.

  3. You definitely will want the warranty, so I'd recommend that you send it into Nintendo and see what they can do with it.

  4. Send it to Nintendo. If not you could damage the Wii and lose your SSBB save file at the same time.

  5. Never open the system as you run a very high chance of completely screwing up the best system.

  6. Send it to Nintendo, they'll fix it for you. Don't try it yourself.

  7. I wouldn't open it up if I were you (unless you're planning to do anything Nintendo won't do inside of it), but I've heard from some people that blowing some compressed air through the disc slot helped their systems; give it a shot if you have a can sitting around.

  8. I would get a lens cleaning kit as a last resort only, though. If you can easily afford to send it to Nintendo and have it done there then do that, but getting a lens cleaner at Best Buy for ten bucks would not be a bad idea.

  9. Just send it in to Nintendo like everyone else is saying. First you will void your warranty, then you might mess up for lens even more or damage something else in your Wii. A little patience might be good.
