    I have the same problem. I got my dreamcast off of E-bay and it works just fine (only for 3 hours). It read all the games great, but in the middle of playing a game it dose this blip like thing on the tv screen then it comes back to the game, but after it did the blip thing the dreamcast wouldent read any of my 4 controllers. I am very angry at this problem. I took me dreamcast apart all the way down to the main chip board and I couldn't find any problems, no burns, no blown fuses or anything like that. please help me.

Clesn the contacts on the controllers with a pencil eraser that is rough, not the soft ones, erasers are good for cleaning contacts! or use contact cleaner spray, but be carefull not to get any on the laser... or sandpaper 2 clean the contacts, if not could be the cable inside has broken!

I dunno mine do the same thing.....its because the game is not clean.controlers are needed to clean......so ppl open the controler with a screw driver;blow it;then put ur controler in and it should work

Dreamcast rules all you need to do is open up the dreamcast and look near the controller ports there will be a big resistor got to radio shack get a new one(the colored stripes identify it) and solder it in or have someone else do it. very easy fix......................... this problem occurs from using 4 controllers with 4 vmu's and 4 rumbles packs all at once. it overloads it.

Hi, my sega dreamcast console won't spin disc, please help!


Hi,

try this youtube guide here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rizeLEQyzs&feature=related, during the video the person will talk about a black plastic leave that gets pushed back by the dreamcast lid. if that lever is not being pushed back the drive will not spin. you can try the suggestion in the guide also.

Hope this helps,

Omeil

My control wont work


did you tested another dreamcast control...you had the same problem...so you have to check the protection Fusistor inside your dreamcast conector controller board....it seems like a blue or green normal resistor...marked as F1 on the board..change it with a simple fuse or an smd fusistor...Good Luck!

Your Dreamcast sounds like it's overheating.

Dreamcast Loading problem


you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.
