5.0 out of 5 stars Wii SAVER - Just remember it may not me the fix for all February 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As my 11 year old son came in the living room a week ago, face falling to the floor, he declares that the Wii is "broken". He just received a new game for Christmas and has been playing it happily since. I am usually pretty good at troubleshooting things so after a few mintues I see that it's a disc read error. The Wii is not reading any of our discs. Fortunately, with some patience I can get the Wii to recognize the disc after inserting and ejecting it multiple times, but obviously, this will not do. ( Eleven year olds do not have the patience to perform this action as needed, and I don't have the time to do this on a regular basis)

On Nintendo's site they offer up the advice of cleaning the lens on the Wii before offering to generously set up a pick up to fix your Wii for a small fortune (that as a single mom I can't fork out). In Nintendo's style they say that the only lens cleaning kit you can use is the one they make because, like all other products that are not Nintendo, they will ruin the Wii, destroy your lawn, and end the world (I have an Energizer Wii remote charger that works....please don't tell them). However, in this case....They are correct. And don't let anyone tell you different.

I thought that like any other lens on any other machine you should be able to just clean it. So did the folks at 3 of the stores I went to that did not carry the Nintendo Lens Cleaning Kit. Use anything they said. You can't. Leave it to Nintendo to come up with something so bizarre looking that no one on the planet would even bother duplicating it for bootleg purposes. Fortunately, it's cheap.

AND IT WORKS!!! It's weird to use. And I really thought it was going to be some gimmick before I shipped off the hard drive, but behold.......

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After a year and a half w/o any problems with my Wii console, I started getting "An error has occurred. Press the Eject button and remove the disc..." errors. These got more and more frequent until I was getting them a couple times an hour. (This usually happened while I was playing Mario Kart Wii online, so I was losing hundreds of VR points each time I got the error!) There was no visible damage to the game disc and cleaning the disc did not help. I was pretty much ready to either send in the Wii console for repairs or else buy a new Wii console when I came across this Wii Lens Cleaning Kit while searching online.

After using the cleaning kit, I have not gotten a single "Press the Eject button and remove the disc..." error. It's been about a month and half so far with no errors.

The cleaning kit is pretty simple. It consists of a plastic paddle with an attached cleaning pad. You put 2-3 drops of the supplied cleaning fluid on the pad, then insert the paddle into the Wii's disc slot. You wiggle the handle 10-20 times to clean the lens. Press the Eject button to remove the paddle, and you're done. The kit comes with an 8ml bottle of cleaning fluid and 5 adhesive replacement pads for when the current pad gets too dirty to use again.

Spending $10 on a cleaning kit was definitely better than sending in the Wii for repairs or buying a new Wii.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not fix read disc error June 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
After reading some of the reviews for the lens cleaning kit I was hopeful that using it would fix our Wii which is not reading discs. After following the instructions, we tried a few games to see if the Wii would work but instead of telling us it could not read the disc it now says system error. So I guess we will have to get our Wii repaired or get a new one. So, if you order this in hopes of fixing the read disc error, be prepared that it might not!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
NOTE: SAVE MONEY! Don't buy this product for $30+. Since Amazon stopped carrying it, the third party sellers are charging way too much. *I bought this from the manufacturer's website for around $16 after shipping.* Charging $40 for a $10 product is borderline unethical.

While my Wii rarely returns disc read errors -- unless of course, the disc was scratched -- I decided to order this product in order to keep my Wii in optimal condition. Over time, the laser on the Wii can collect dust and grime, the buildup of which will interfere with the laser's job of reading discs. After running the cleaning kit, I can clearly see the buildup it has removed. This is a great maintenance practice to keep my Wii in top shape; I imagine that, if left alone for too long, a dirty laser can result in permanent damage.

This product WILL NOT fix broken or faulty hardware anymore than wiping a scratched disc will fix the disc. It's a maintenance product designed to simply clean the laser. If this product doesn't improve your Wii's performance (and you aren't using bad discs), then your Wii likely has a hardware issue that will require repair or replacement. (Good news: while I can't vouch for the price or quality of Nintendo's repairs, they will renew your warranty for a whole year after they fix your Wii, and they will also deduct the price of the MSRP of this product from your repair costs.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ok, This is no game. September 8, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm amused by the fact that the ratings questions for this product are as follows:

How much fun is this game?
How do you rate this game overall?

So to refocus this review (pun intended)....

This Wii Lense Cleaning Kit restored my Wii console to top notch condition.
Whereas disc reading errors had become a matter of course, the console now reads right away, and again operates in accordance
with it's manufacturer's specifications Shipping was timely and the purchasing process was excellent through Amazon as always.
