As you may know, Nintendo is currently selling a Wii Lens Cleaner for all thoses Wii who get the terrible “Press the EJECT Button” error after placing a game inside. Most people used this to save themselfs from having to send their Wiis to Nintendo in order to play Smash Bros. Brawl. However, this thing costs around 5€ (10 US Dollars on Amazon.com), and you might wanna keep that money to like… get a chocolate bar.
So, ladies and gentlemen, I present…
Let me warn you, this might not be as safe as the official wii lens cleaner (in fact, it might make your wii lens work less!), but I tried this myself (SSBB was not working, but every other game does) just three days ago. Afterwards, Brawl worked flawlessly (in Gecko and on the Wii Menu). If your feel couragous enough to give it a go, I can’t stop you. How to make? Here’s what you’ll need:
- Carton. Must be thick enough for it not to bend easily and must be able to enter the wii disc drive.
- Super Glue.
- Alcohol at 90°C.
- A pen.
- A DVD.
So first get yourself your piece of carton. Place the DVD on it and retrace it on the carton so that you obtain the DVD’s outlines. Then trace a rectangle that “glued” to DVD’s outline. It must be long enough so it can stick out of the Wii Driver.
Try to redo that rectangle in the image above. Inside that rectangle, you’ll place a thin piece of coton, but a tiny bit thick, by glueing it with the super glue. To be extra sure that the coton won’t fall in the driver, add scotch all around the piece of coton, but leave some space in the center of the coton without any scotch on it. Once that’s done, add in a very little amount of alcohol in the center of the coton. Get ready, we’re gonna place this in the wii.
Once you’ve inserted it into the Wii, move the rectangle that’s sticking out up and down 3/4 of an inch only, for about 10-20 times. Once that’s done, press the EJECT Button and then take back your piece of carton.
Tadaa! You’re done! If you’ve followed everything in this tutorial, try inserting a game (inserting ssbb is the true judgement factor, however.). If it reads, then good for you! Ever since I did this trick, I celebrated online by playing (for the first time in months), SSBB online.
