You may have tipped the reading mechanism from overheating. How long were you playing GH5?
Not long. In an act that almost bordered on superstitious, though, I tried running the Wii standing up (because I heard about a guy who got his PlayStation to start working again by turning it on its side) to see if that would help. Well, it didn't.

Old PlayStations had plastic laser assemblies that wore away with use but could still track correctly or at an angle. Needless to say, Wii drives are 437829x better quality in the first place. And I run my Wii vertically all the time.
That was a joke.

I am also having problems with my parents Wii.  It won't even turn on.  I'm wondering if it got fried during a thunderstorm.  They want me to fix it but I don't know what to do, I feel real bad.  Has anyone else had this problem?

Yeah, so I was playing GH5, the thing started taking forever to load, and then I just up and got a disc read error. Now, I can't get it to read any discs. The manual said something about just unplugging it for a while--disregarding the fact that I can't see how the AV cord would have anything to do with the disc being properly read, I always unplug my Wii in the interest of minute energy conservation, so I doubt that's part of the problem. Anyone else have something like this happen that can give me some help that doesn't involve online troubleshooting, robot hotlines, and jotting down error codes?
You know, I had this same problem with Mario Kart Wii, and got the same effect, stopped reading every disc (including the gamecube ones). I tried looking on Yahoo Answers and that was no help. So I guess I'll just suck it up and pay $75 to get it fixed by Nintendo.

I paid $60 for a local fix, but it took about a month.

Really? Because one person said there Wii was only gone for a week and when it came back it was working just fine.

Yeah, I kind of regret the decision. Works now, at least, but the guy(s) who fixed it...

1) Replaced one or two of the rubber nubs with ones of a grayer color.
2) Made the Reset button immobile (still works, though).
3) Did something to the GCN ports flap that made it incredibly loose.

Because of this thread's title, I've been reading every post as some kind of double entendre.

How long would it take to repair a Wii from the heartland?

Never mind. I'll just do it myself.

When it's from the heartland, anything's possible.

Sending it to a private repair man was probably a good idea. My Wii broke down last year. I sent it to Nintendo.

$90 and two weeks later, my Wii came back-without any memory. All 70 Miis, all twenty+ games, and my 16 channels were gone. 4+ years of memory, gone.

A stuck reset button is the least of what could've been your problems.

Minor correction: It's actually the Power button, and despite its seeming immobility, it works.
