Problems with Call for Duty 2 - GC grey screens after 25 minutes

Recently purchased a brand new Call for Duty 2 for GC. Regardless of what level my kids are at, after about 25 mins or so, the unit grey screens requiring a reset. This does not happen with any other game incl Zelda, Need for Speed, FIFA editions, NFL, NHL and others. The fact that it happens consistently on this particular game, and regardless of what level they're at, leads me to think it could either be an overheating issue (but why only on this game) or something else. Any suggestions for debug? Suggestions for getting around this so we can play the game?

Re: Problems with Call for Duty 2 - GC grey screens after...

It could be an issue of what Model machine you are using.. The way games are programmed, its not common, but sometimes operates differently depending on what model you are using.. If the game freezes on a friend's machine, then its a defective disc.. but if it only freezes on yours, it could be the model of your machine.. or specific machine having a hard time to read the machine... I'd suggest trying to clean the lens, maybe with a Mini Disc Lens Cleaner, and if that doesn't help... It could... MAYBE... be an issue with the memory card.. games have been known to be twitch depending on the memory card... especially third-party memory cards... the official Nintendo cards are very reliable, and have no issues... but if its a third-party company made memory card, they have been known to have many random issues, and are basically unreliable.. If you have a third party memory card, try getting an official Nintendo memory card and see if it does the same thing...

I've played that game before and there is a cheat to make it grey if you beat easy mode. I don't really get the point of the cheat but that's what it does. Maybe it's just a glitch. Sorry if that was irrevelant. I'm pretty sure that would just be the game itself.

Brand new wii sensor bar not working . sensor lites up , game comes on , but "pointers" wont appear on screen ? any solutions ?i

There are a few possibilities:
  • Light/Heat sources interfering with the sensor.
  • Ensure the bar is oriented correctly
  • Ensure the Wiimote is properly synced
  • Ensure the sensor bar sensitivity is set correctly.
  • Not all games use pointers, but work regardless

If all else fails, turn off the console for five minutes.
This will reset the console and possibly fix your problem.

Every time i put my brand new (purchased two hours ago) call of duty black ops game, the screen goes to the XBOX 360 screen, and freezes there. the hard drive i have for my console is also brand new, well...

firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...

The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

Brand New 3 day old PS3 80gb - Now will not load any such data -> games/ dvds. . .Help

same old story, that everybody knows, now knows..
i'm on my second ps3 because of the disc reading problem.
Luckly, i was able to exchange it through circuit city because it was within 30 days of purchase. Now, my second ps3 did the same thing, and yes, it's under the 30 period from the time i exchanged the first one. so, i guess i'll be returning this one too. I tried a full system restore, which took wayyy tooo looong, but to no avail. It's kinda funny, but the first time i had this problem i was able to talk to a playstation customer service person regarding this problem, but the second time this happened i wasn't able to speak with a customer service person. There was a recording instead," Because of the HIGH customer service volume, please call back at a later time" LMAO.. that's a bunch of BS!! Sony is starting to piss me off. Will get refund for this peice of *&^%%$, and buy an XBOX360.. Failure to resolve this problem before production is unexcusable, and failure to address or have a fix for this problem is just as bad. I'm starting to think that Sony already knew of this problem, but released the defects anyway.. Dam sony bean counters thought it more 'cost effective' to handle problems after consumer purchase.. FK THAT
