As above really my Nintndo Wii has started making a "loading noise"
which was not there before.
If I move the Wii slightly it stops but then comes back again.
My games are working ok and you can only hear the noise when the
console is quiet ( ie when waiting for a race to start on Mario Kart!! )

Has anyone else got the same problem?
Does anyone know how to make it stop?

no, might just be normal sounds, maybe not noticed it before
#2
are you sitting closer to the console than normally..?
#3
is a flap vibrating when the disk is spinning at full speed
#4
Been drinking?

To be fair, that's one of the good things about the wii, it is normally very quiet.

Def. not normal sounds, I would have noticed it before.
Only started about two days ago.
When I move the wii a little it stops, maybe I need a new stand?

That seems to be what it sounds like.
How do I check? Where do I look?

That doesn't sound (mind the pun) too good, I remember when my PS2 started making noises and it gradually got worse until I couldn't play anything at all. So I traded it at GAME to get a new silver one for £22!

Unfortunately not
( Well it was 9:45am which, even for me, is a little too early for drinking!! )

does it sound like a kind of 'scratching' noise on the disk? like just ever so often as though its trying to read the next part of the game?

No it's a constant noise..........
#14
Is it like a bleeping noise or popping..?

it's coming from the disk I think.
It's like a loud loading noise from the disk.
When I have the wii horizontal it's not as bad...........

maybe the disc is warped or out of balance dont know if there is such a thing i am just guessing
#17
We're going through the same thing....... coincidentally, it started up when we inserted Mario Kart, which is a constant noise until we turn off the console.
#18
Mario Kart is the only game I seem to play atm
so it's the one I notice it on.
I am going to try different games this afternoon.
Taking the wii off the stand and having it horizontal does make it better
( but still not as silent as b4!! )

sounds like the game disc is at fault
#22
Sounds like I have the same thing. It seems to me as though it may have something to do with the internal fan, as though as the blades are turning, it is clipping a wire or something.

Also, it only happens when a disc is spinning i.e. I don't hear anything when on the channels page.
#23
it's more like the CD lazer head moving to a position it can't reach... I've had the same problem before. As soon as I put it horizontal, it stopped...
#24
Does anyone know the best way/address/phone number to get my Wii sent off to Nintendo for repair?
#25
how strange........,i was playing on mario kart lastweek and suddenly the picture froze and then a loud alarm started on the console i was really freaked out thought it was about to blow up :oops:,the only wasy i could turn the console off was to switch it off at the mains!!!!!i put it back on 5 mins later and it was fine,a friend later told me it was proberly dusty inside becouse her computer used to alarm when it was full of dust! so i hooverd it and nothing has happend since:?
