Either a problem with your disk (Scratched up, damaged) or you Laser Lens is dirty or failing. You could check your disks and get them buffed if it is just one or 2. You could clean your laser lens with you alcohol. But if this does not work you may have to replace the laser unit in you Gamecube.
Your Gamecube reader lens may be dirty. Take some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and rub it lightly and carefully on your Gamecube lens. If this does not work, it could be your Gamecube discs. Sometimes Gamecube discs can get worn out, and no longer work. Another possibility is the reading lens is completely broken. You will have to buy a Nintendo Game Bit tool to open your Gamecube, and replace the lens with a new lens that you will have to buy. I hope this helped.
Ensure the games are being loaded properly. With the power turned off on the system, replace a Game Disc (printed side up) in the system, press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen. Try this with a few of your games.
If Troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, and it is happening with all your games, then your system will need repair. Check out our convenient repair options.
Grab a cotton swab (A Q-Tip), and some rubbing alcohol. Lightly wet one end of the cotton swab with the rubbing alcohol and open up your Gamecube's disk tray. LIGHTYLY rub the wet end of the cotton swab on the disks laser in a circular motion. The laser is the shiny part pointed to by red arrows in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/MAXRQ.png
Now leave it for a minute or two to dry and attempt to play a game again. If this doesn't work your problem may be an underlying hardware error that can't be solved without opening up and gutting your gamecube. Let's hope for the best though!
No Game Disc: This error can occur when the Game Disc has been removed while the system is on and then the Disc Cover is closed. Follow these troubleshooting steps:
Ensure the game is inserted correctly. With the power turned off on the system, replace the Game Disc in the system, printed side up. Press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen.
Determine if this happens with more than one game by inserting a different game into the system.
If the error occurs with all games, follow the Multiple Game Disc troubleshooting.
If the error occurs with only one game, follow the individual game disc troubleshooting.
If you are getting the specific message, "An error has occurred. Turn
the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further
instructions." This means there may be an internal problem with the system.
