Why can't my Wii console read the disc?

Issue with a Wii RVL-001: The console and controllers can turn on and operate games in memory. I can place a disc into the console. The console attempts to read the disc, then a disc read error pops up. Rebooting does not help. It happens with multiple discs. Is this look like a full DVD drive replacement or something else? Thanks!

Before you replace the DVD drive. Try to blow the lens clean with a can of compressed air. If that doesn't work, you can order an official Nintendo Wii cleaning kit. There are also DIY cleaning methods available. Replacing your DVD should be your last resort.

If cleaning the lens doesn't work then you may have to replace the drive. But try either A. using compressed air as @jcarm75 said, or B. use a cotton swap and clean it. If all else fails then as a last resort just replace the drive. Hope this helps if not let us know and we can help!
