5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, not for the faint of heart January 29, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Worked, came fast and did what it said. This is great for your ego, I recommend it to everyone. Makes you a hero to kids and spouse who will be asking if you are sure you know what you are doing the whole time.

My son's Wii was throwing out "The disc could not be read" or "System error, please consult your manual" constantly. Most games were unplayable. We tried cleaning, to no avail. This happens more on "Super Smash Brothers" and some other games because they use the double layer discs and demand more of the laser. Eventually it will happen on every disc.

This happens because the lasers used for reading discs age. They get weaker and weaker the longer they are used. Eventually they are too dim to work.

This repair is not for everyone. It takes a Nintendo triwing screwdriver and a jewelers Philips head screwdriver set, small pliers, soldering iron and I use a magnifying lamp (but I'm old). If you are fairly mechanically inclined, careful keeping track of the screws, cables, etc. You can do it. It took me about two hours and I do this kind of stuff all the time. If this is your first it will probably take a lot longer. Otherwise go for buying a replacement drive, they cost 60 bucks and up, but you avoid the tricky parts of the repair, the soldering, and almost all the ribbon cables.

This Wii was one of the original Wii's, we bought it in November 2006 for Christmas, stood in line and everything. He plays it constantly, and leaves it on all the time. We had already sent it back to Nintendo once for this problem when it was under warranty and they repaired it. I recommend if your Wii is fairly new to go this route.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fix Wii Disk Read Errors Easily August 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My younger brother owns a Wii and plays it almost every day. As one would expect, it takes quite the toll on the electronics, especially since it is sitting in an entertainment unit that traps some heat. I eventually got a phone call that the Wii is reporting disk read errors, and since I am a computer engineer, my brother felt that I should take a look at it since he didn't want to pay 80 dollars for Nintendo to deal with it since he is out of warranty.

In any event, I ordered one of these replacement lens kits, along with a triwing screwdriver. The overall install took me about 20 minutes start to finish, but mind you that I have had plenty of electronics experiences. After the install, I put everything back together, fired up the Wii, and all was well.

I would say that the install difficulty is rather easy. You just really want to take your time, and be aware of the components. The ribbon on these replacement parts are actually quite sturdy, so dont be too afraid to actually work on the Wii.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not fit my Wii March 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was not able to use this part. Nintendo has 2 different Laser Lenses form the Wii. This is for the newer ones that do not play Game Cube games. If you have an older Wiii, you need the RAF 3355 not this part. I think it would be useful if this information were contained in the product description.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My Wii was giving me the cannot read disk error every time I tried to play a game on disk. I bought this Wii when they first came out before Christmas of 2006. It was functioning in other ways. I could still play games I downloaded to the console just not on disks. My first thought was that the lens was dirty. I went to Best Buy and bought a DVD lens cleaning kit for $20. The guy at Best Buy told me that if cleaning it doesn't work the laser lens might be broken and Nintendo will want over $80 to fix it. He said I should probably just buy a new Wii. Sure enough I took the cleaning kit home and it did NOTHING! I was very upset.
I could hear that the Wii was still able to spin the disk, so I figured the Best Buy guy was right and it was just the lens part that was broken. I grabbed a philips head screwdriver and started attempting to disassemble. I didn't get very far because a lot of the screws are the tri-wing screws. I got on amazon and ordered the screwdriver and the laser lens replacement part. My whole total for both items after shipping was about $13. They both arrived and I looked up "how to dissassemble Wii" on youtube. Then I looked up "replace laser lens wii" or something like that. I also ended up needing a soldering iron just for getting a dot of solder off the new part, but that was the only other tool I used.
I got the new part installed and in the process of putting it back together knocked off a small white piece of plastic from inside. I forgot to put it back in. Opps. I quickly realized after hooking the Wii back up that this part is critical and keeps the disk from BEING THROWN ACROSS THE ROOM!! Big opps! I took it apart again and again I turned to youtube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solved the Problem September 27, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We could not play our Wii for more than a few minutes without being told to eject the disc, power off, and start over. The Wii still overheats occasionally, but it is extremely rare. The new laser did the trick. Replacing it is not a trivial matter, but anyone with a modicum of mechanical skills can do it.
