My dreamcast will power on for a moment that shuts off.


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.

Regards,

Omeil

Dreamcast shows logo then goes blank


Definately the DC. Try ensuring that the connections are properly made first, and if that fails, try wiping the laser lens (very carefully) and the disc with a smooth cloth.

My dreamcast power wont come on


Be sure to check that your power outlet is supplying enough power by plugging in another game console or even something like a DVD player into the same outlet.

Also try finding another power cable and try that.
Cables can be worn out through time and cable failure can be common.
Dreamcast power cables are a standard type and can be found on other machines like boom boxs, DVD players or simply sold as generic replcament power cables.

If your outlet works fine for other machines and the Dreamcast continues this problem with other power cables then it is safe to assume that the power unit in the dreamcast is damaged somehow.

In most cases this would warrent a replacment.
Used Dreamcasts are cheap and not hard to find.

I do not suggest salvaging another power unit from another machine as this can be harder than its worth overall.

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.

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.

Black Screen On Start Up!


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.
