my sister knocked my wii over and now it won't eject the disc.

my family tried ot get it out with a butter knife and felt 3 bars in the way and they want to take it apart.

to make this simpler for people it was knocked over with the disc drive on the bottom so it was upside down after it fell.

i just want to know if anyone had this problem because if its something i can repair simply it saves me 80 bucks

You need a tri-wing screwdriver to dis-assemble a Wii. There aren't any warranty stickers, so I suppose you'd be ok with going that route. I think if you just take the faceplate off you can probably retrieve the disc that way.

Taking the faceplate of a CD drive does nothing. It just exposes an ugly, metal box. I learnt about this at a computer repairing place for work experience.

does anyone know of a site that has pictures of the wiis insides?

You can make a screwdriver by melting the end of a ballpoint pen with a lighter with the ink and nib removed then press it into the screw head until it sets hard it's how I made a cheap screwdriver to open my gamecube to adjust the pot of the laser.

You should probably take it somewhere where people really know what to do....

The pen/screwdriver thing is a good idea though.... will adopt.

I remember using the pen trick on the NGC's screws... then I bought the proper bit for it.
