Check the power supply. Have it checked by a certified local technician in your area.

I was given a sega dreamcast everything works but when it says install disc i put the disc on the wheel close the door and the cd wont stay on the wheel


If I recall the Sega Dreamcast wheel is a clasp type wheel. You need to push the disk down onto the wheel and you will hear it secure itself onto the wheel. Then close the wheel and you should be good to go. Don't just place it on the wheel... push it down until you here that little clicking sound and it should stay on the wheel.

Most likely it is over heating due to a fan that stop spinning or dust in the vents. Make sure the fan is still working and clean it out with compressed air.

Hi,

Sounds like your dreamcast is getting cut of from its power, the dreamcast sometimes gets a build of of dirt around the power connector pins that supplies the entire unit with power, try this youtube guide here for cleaning http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rizeLEQyzs&feature=related you don't need to do the bending section of the pins. just clean them and the actually plastic socket section where the pins go in.

Dreamcast wont power on


sounds like a fuse gone

there's one on the plug? (In uk there is)
There is a glass fuse inside the machine
So take it apart and look at it (close to the where the power goes into the machine
If there is no wire in the glass take it out and get a replacement at an electric shop.
DO NOT JUST PUT ANY OLD BIT OF WIRE IN THERE!

Sega Dreamcast console problem


First off, NEVER store a game console on top of a subwoofer. It is like a giant magnet, and electronic devices do not handle magnetics. I don't think i've ever heard of a VGA box, Sega brand or not, killing a console. Millions use aftermarket AV cables and adaptors on all consoles without problem. I think it likely died from being on top of the sub. Relocate it and you should be fine. Running it for a few hours isnt likely either unless you had the vents entirely blocked.
To the guest who's drive isnt spinning, I would say your drive motor has burnt out. This doesn't indicate a defect in Dreamcasts, per se, it just means bad luck or excessive dust which killed it. Either buy a different Dreamcast or see if you can find a drive replacement.
Hope this helps.

Please post pictures, and where did it fall out from, and did you put a game in and the turn it on? Maybe it could be the main board being faulty, and might be fried. Please add more details.
