My Wii Broke. :( Anyone else?

The disc reader went bad on my Wii, I had to send it in for repairs.

This is the second time I've had to send a Wii in for repairs since I got the thing for Christmas in 2006. Why is the Wii so easy to break?

Remember how strong the GameCube was? You could drag that thing behind a truck and it would still work, or so YouTube says. And yet the Wii breaks at the drop of a pin!

They just don't make em' like they used to! Example;

I recall when I had to send my launch PS3 in for repairs, cost close to $190 O_o

my guess is this

computer + easy to break = more profit

Darn, I've had no trouble with mine. I don't understand it when people say it keeps breaking. :lol:

But that's sad to hear, hope it doesn't cost too much and it works when you get it back. ;)

Actually, I got my GameCube in December 2008, then had to use my GameStop warranty in December 2009 because it quit reading discs. :P

But the GameCube's case is super strong, yeah.

Only problem with my Wii is that it beeps super loud.

With all the use my Wii gets, I'm surprised it still runs fine. Last I checked, I've used it for over 1000 hours.

Edit: The hell? I just checked the Nintendo Channel, I now have 9,327 hours logged into the Internet Channel alone... I need to get a life fast.

my wii's been like a tank ever since I got it 2 or 3 years ago.  my wii sports disc has gone bad, but that's the only problem I've had with anything wii related.

Dang, I wonder why my PS3 and/or Xbox 360 (which I gave away for $120 last week) hasn't had any problems since I got them.  The only problems I've had were some minor freezing during loading times or during intense gameplay.

I bought my Wii on the release date, it still hasn't broken yet.

Now that you mention it... No, out of all of these, Snes, sega master system, Nintendo 64, GameCube, Wii, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360<-(I got lucky on that one I guess), plus whatever hand helds I got, the GameCube is the only system I have had break...

I've personally never had a console fail me, until I got the YLOD on PS3 :oops:

My Wii hasn't broke yet.

The only time my Wii broke was when I picked up my reserved copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and played it, then my disc reader all of a sudden went beserk.

Wii is still alive, I never play it though considering I don;'t have many games for it and the only game worth playing that I have is SSBB and that's broken.

My first game cube had a lens meltdown after 2 years :P, that was just unlucky. My wii is a day one wii, and still works fine, sometimes it has a hard time reading double layer discs, but nothing that a couple boots would fix.

The main problem with the wii is the lens, mostly, I haven't heard a lot of issues from its other parts.

that does seem to be the truth nowadays, doesn't it? anyway, I've had my Wii for a while now. guess I'm just one of the few that have gotten lucky since I haven't had to send it in yet.

Well, good news. I GOT MY WII BACK! And it's good as new.

Just by listening to the thing, I can already tell that it's running better. From the sound of it they replaced the disc reader, and the ejector, so pretty much the entire disc drive. They even repaired the casing, as it had been a little wobbly for a while.

My Wii's disc reader went bad too. So I got an Xbox 360. Haven't sent my Wii in, as it's out of warranty, and I only played one game on it, which is also on the other consoles, may it rest in peace.
