Finally got a copy of Zelda but now my Wii U has stopped reading discs. When I was playing Zelda I noticed a loud craking sound coming from the Wii U like it was always loading something from the disc. Now it flat out won't play discs at all. Just says the disc can't be read doesn't matter what game I put in.

Stuff installed on the system already works. Looks like my laser burned out. Maybe due to the fact how hard Zelda was working the systems blu ray drive. I had my PS3 stop reading discs from FF13 years ago now this.

Wii Us are hard to find in stores now, its way past the warranty since I got it years ago what should I do?

Buy a refurb from Nintendo, they are fairly inexpensive. I plan on getting one down the line
