    Default Wii not reading discs (unmodded)> Where to repair

    In-laws Wii is not reading discs.
    Hardly been used, so I'm assuming dirty faulty lens.
    Is it worth fixing and any ideas in Sydney where?

    If the disc spins, it's probably a laser fault.

    Might not be worth the repair cost, depending on the model.

    This may be an option?
