My game cube is telling me to turn off power and refer to the nintendo gamecube instruction booklet


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.

Put disk in and the Gamecube keeps saying there is not disk..wtf?


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.

Game was working put in frogger started to load then said to see oweners manual. disk has no scraches. but now gamecube will not load other games. red light comes on disk spins but says unusable signiel


  1. 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.

Disk is clean and all, but when I turn it on, its starts fine until the little box finish making the Game Cube Icon and then start turning and goes straight to my memory card. I can hear the cd running but...


Your Gamecube's laser may be dirty. Try this:

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!

I turn it on with the disk in the gamecube and it goes to the cube screen. Then i look at the disk part of it and it says that there is no disk but there actually is a disk.


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.

Doesn't Read Disc


I had the same problem. Just wipe the laser lens with a smooth cloth.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

Gamecube error


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.
