Why does my wii keeps ejecting my discs? How do I fix it?
I put the disk in. The wii ejects it after a few seconds. It then attempts to suck it back in followed shortly by an eject again and it doesn't suck it in again.
Hey mate, have you tried inserting different discs? Sometimes this issue can be caused by one faulty disk. If not, you might have a disc drive read error.
This is almost always a hardware issue. If the Wii is now out of warranty, this is what you can do, and works most times. Open the Wii up and remove the disc drive. Now open the disc drive casing and check for any foreign objects in it (e.g. coins, bugs, plastic etc). Next, clean the disc drive with compressed air and also clean the laser lens. To do this, first spray it with compressed air to remove any large build ups of dust etc. Next you'll need to use a cotten bud and rubbing/isopropyl alcohol, and clean the lens that way.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
I just tried this procedure and it had no effect. I suspect that the drive is not spinning the discs at all which is causing the system to automatically eject. If the disc won't spin, does the entire drive need replacing or just one of its components?
I just used a mini vacuum on my wii and it must have eliminated some dust in the way. Thanks!!!!
(Looking at the front of the wii once the cover is off) There is a moving white bracket that should engage the gears the spinning white gear. For some reason the pulling power of these gears acting on the bracket is not enough to collapse the cd on the disk spinner. The motor will not start if the disk is not collapsed into place properly. The will eject disk and try a second time. Root problem is gears acting on white bracket to cause disk to sit properly.
Bracket and gears im referring to are on the forward right side of wii
So what is the fix of the white bracket not being able to drop the cd?
If you take the plastic cover off of the wii then take the meatball cover off of the disc drive, you should be able to see the gears at the bottom of the wii. When the disk is inserted a piece of plastic will move forward to try to push the disc down. Take something and push this piece of plastic forward until the disc drops down. The disc should be able to be read after that.
@Leo Pruhs Thanks for the tip, pushing the white plastic rectangle forwards worked. Do you know of a more permanent solution so I don’t need to dismantle the entire wii to insert a new disk?
It seems like the gears are just barely unable to provide enough force to push the plastic rectangle completely. It needs the help of my finger. Maybe it’s stuck on something? Unfortunately, the mechanism is so delicate that I can’t properly inspect it.
@wiiuser In this thread another @lebeauremi highlighted the gear that was causing the same issue in my Wii. The plastic gear slips on the metal shaft before it gets enough force to work the rest of the mechanism. I epoxied the problem gear to the shaft to fix it in my case.
I just got the same issue on my wii and i found that the plastic gear on the shaft who is driven by the mini-belt was spining free on the shaft and becaus of that the wii cannot releash the pression on the disk and it just go in and out non-stop i just put some hot glu and it fix my problem but i will News a new drive assembly soon becaus i dont know how mutch this gonna last!
Is it possible to clean it with a cleaning disc?
Just fixed this problem in my Wii. The highlighted gear was the issue. The gear slips on the metal shaft before it gets enough torque to work the rest of the mechanism. Applied some epoxy to the slipping gear to stick it to the shaft.
this is unfixable without money

I fixed it by swapping the whole drive for a new one. It's not that expensive and actually not too difficult either. Ifixit has a guide on how to do that and if you just follow every step by the book then it's quite doable.
