Play them on your wii u. Just not on your gamepad. I still have my N64, but there were no moving parts. Nintendo still did a good job with the wii since it had moving parts.

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Itīs a way of your system telling you itīs time to pass the baton on to its successor.

I know but I wanted to play my wii games on it's original format, I'm wierd like that

Softmod your wii and you can play all your originals from hdd instead.

When my laser died  on my wii i softmodded mine and have played my games from hdd instead and you can still use wii´s online even when you are playing from hdd

Maybe I'm not allowed to say this, but softmod > install any USB or SD loader you like (I suggest, go for USB) > grab your Wii discs on external medium of your choice (some loaders could do it internally, like WiiFlow) > enjoy. Mine is 5 yo and just like new, but probably I've never used it that heavily.

Is it easy to buy a new laser amd replace it myself?

I did it myself, it's not a difficult process, just watch a youtube video while you're doing it.
