If your gamecube does not read games but the disk spins then it means that your laser assembly is shot if it does not spin then the chances are its your motor hub thats shot.

if it works with some games and not others then chances are the laser assembly needs to be adjusted.

hope this helps.

I plug it in and only the fan will turn on


Something might be wrong with your Nintendo Gamecube as a whole. I'm not totally sure. I've heard of Gamecubes working, but the fan is broken, but the other way around, that's a bit strange. If you can post some more information, can you tell me if the Gamecube actually turns on to the point where it says "No Disc", or it just doesn't even show a picture when you hit the power button.

I have a need for speed game for my gamecube and it keeps on saying that the disc could not be read and that i should read my gamecubes instruction booklet


Troubleshooting - Multiple Discs
  1. Some games may need to be cleaned. Clean each disc with a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean them from center towards the edges; do not use a circular motion. DO NOT use paper. Once they are cleaned, dry the disc using a dry portion of the cloth and wiping in the same style as you did to clean the discs. After all of the water is gone, let the discs sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting any of them into the Nintendo GameCube.
  2. Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
  3. Ensure the games are being loaded properly. With the power turned off on the system, replace a Game Disc (printed side up) in the system, press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen. Try this with a few of your games.
If Troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, and it is happening with all of your games then the system may need to be repaired then.

Wait it could or might just be karma then. Never put cheat devices in your video game consoles because it can corrupt the system and mess up the console too. Play the games fair and square like I do because they still work and the machine doesn't want people to cheat either thats why.

The game disk could not be read.


It sounds like the disc reader is dirty, it's the little clear circle right under where a disc would go, closest to the back of the unit.
To clean, open disc cover, locate the disc reader, use a dry soft towel or some toilet paper and gently wipe it off, sometimes even a little dust can cause a problem. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, then either the disc is scratched or the Game Cube has something wrong with it.
hope this helps!
