Sound not Working Correctly

I haven't played my gamecube for quite sometime and haven't had it hooked up for almost a year. When I last put it away it was fine. I tried to hook it up today and found that my sound was coming out as a harsh buzzing noise. Yes, we did hook it up correctly as I have done so many times. Before I put it away I just bought new input jacks for it so they were working fine. Could that be the problem again? Any advise would be appreciated. I really would hate to give up on it.

Re: Sound not Working Correctly

It could be the TV inputs, or a loose connection in the wires leading to the TV.. in the worst case, the actual AV output device on the GameCube may be damaged somehow.. for this, you'll have to send the GameCube to Nintendo to fix up for you.....

Have Mario Kart Double Dash Gamecube disc. Trying to play on my Wii. It says, "the disc cannot be read, refer the instruction booklet". Don't have one. Any ideas?

There have been a couple of flaws in how the Wii reads Gamecube games, so this could be for a couple of reasons.
1. Some games simply just cant be read on the Wii, but it is completely determined by the game...not the Wii. This is a flaw found in mostly Gamecube games and sometimes Wii games. I have heard of Super Smash Brothers Brawl not working on certain Wii's. In your case, with Mario Kart Double Dash, it could just be that the game simply cannot be read. If this is true, then there is nothing that can be done. (You can test this by putting the game in somebody else's Wii)
2. A more common problem is scratches or fingerprints. If this is the case, then get scratch removal at the store. If you don't want to, then toothpaste will sometimes work.
3. If all else the instructions booklet.

Hi. my wii has been working fine for the last year or so. we havent changed the cords or fiddled in any way. the unit will turn on fine, and play the games fine, but is coming through in black and white,...

If you haven't fiddled with the cables at all and haven't removed them even if it is just to replace them, then unfortunately it sounds like it needs repairing.
You could try unplugging the cables again and seeing if that works, I find things like this can sometimes be resolved by a quick cable off and on.
The official Nintendo stand on this issue is here.
This is the number for the Nintendo customer services for America: 1-800-255-3700.

Hope this helps.

My gamecube does not spin the discs that i put into it and does not read them. Is there something i can do to fix this without having to buy a new one?

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.

Gamecube controller [suddenly] not working with Wii

logic 3 controllers are not good, return the logic 3 controller to the store and buy a NINTENDO wavebird instead, i bought mine used and it is perfectly fine. you might have the controller plugged into port (....[4]) instead of port ( . [1]) so try that or buy a wavebird instead ( if you ask me , buy the wavebird). I think my sister's friend's brother had the same problem. But he gave up on it. Probably faulty. Third party gamecube and wii accessories (excluding nyko) are bad or do not last very long.
