Every time i start up my gamecube, i get an error on the startup screen saying that the calander needs to be set. (this is an error message in red) I will change it to the correct date and time and it works. however when i stop playing a game and turn it off, the second i try to play another game i get the error message again. I wouldnt mind but i started playing animal crossing again to get me in the mood of the upcoming tittle on the NEW WII but i have to keep resetting the time. UGGH this is really irritating. HELP

There are a few possibilities but I would start by checking the av cables (the one that plugs into your tv). If you wiggle the cable while the console on does the picture change (the black and white and dimming etc)? If so you need a new one.
You can get one on ebay for like $4 or even cheaper if you want to wait for it to ship from hong kong.
OR if you have a Nintendo 64 or an SNES the av cables for those are the same so you can use them instead.
hope it helps
An Error has occurred: If you are getting the specific message, "An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions." This means there may be an internal problem with the system.
One time I ccidently touched the lens in my 10 year old gamecube so now the lens and the laser dont read the discs anymore because it is knocked out of anglement so you could buy a new gamecube now or buy a wii because wii's can still play gamecube disc's too.

It probably is the games, buddy. I mean, if the disc wouldn't read on THREE different systems...it's blatantly obvious that the disc is corrupted. Try it a few times more, and if that doesn't work, then you should probably buy a new game. Depending on the game, it should only cost $9.99 to $49.99. I'm a self-proclaimed Nintendo expert, so that sounds like the right price range. If that is unaffordable, then why did you buy the GameCube in the first place! But, seriously. Also, is it just one game? Or do you have more than one game and all of them won't work? Either way, it's probably the games that are not working.
did you check the back of all your discs for scratches thats the problem or gamcubes broken down if you try a new game and it does the exact same thing send your gamecube to nintendo for repair hope this helps.
It sounds like the error you would get if you put in a Mini-DVD of something that isn't a GameCube disc... it sounds like you may need to send the machine to Nintendo to check for you... alternatively, you could buy a GameCube ScrewDriver + ScrewBit (http://www.mod-chip.com) and open the machine up... have a look at this google video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=287148722109597025 on how to dismantle a GameCube... you should just try take the top half off, and then put it back on.. it SHOULD fix it, if nothing has burned or anything.. I just have no idea how it could have happened...
