Maybe the motor is burned out? If it is, you're probably gonna have to get a new console.

My wii keeps ejecting my game cube games, even tho they are scratch free. I put the game in and the disc icon doesn't even spin as if the game is not there then after 3 seconds of putting the game in...

I had this same problem, its just a issue with the disk driver hand (Its the hand that pulls GC disk and Wii disk into the disk holder) to fix pick up the wii, tilt it upright (to where the back of the wii (where the USB ports are)) is facing the ground and the disk slot is facing the ceiling. Simply put the disk in the console and gravity should do the rest. Also the disk will eject really easily so don't worry about the disk getting stuck inside of the console.

Turns on but wont spin disk

Well we think that the motor inside of the console that spins the disc's is shot now so you should buy a wii because wii's are better than gamecubes are and you can still play gamecube games on a wii too. Because i play gc games on a wii then.

We have a Magellan Explorist GC that we have had for only a couple of months. It freezes when turning on. The Magellan name comes up and the spinning compass thing, but then the spinning thing just...

I had the same problem. Was able to fix it as follows:
1. Turn unit off (pull battery if on/off won't respond) 2. Plug unit into PC with USB cable 3. Hold the menu key and the joystick in the "up" position and power unit on. Make sure you H O L D all three buttons as described until unit is fully powered on. 4. This should allow the unit to go into maintenance/disk access mode. Go to the Magellan website and download the newer version of the system (ver 1.4 as of this post). 5. Follow the install directions.
After doing this, my unit came back on just fine. From what I've read, ver 1.0 of the system has some issues.

This weekend we were watching a movie. It started to skip. I thought it was a dirty disk, took it out, cleaned it with a dry cloth and put it back. Now nothing will play.

When I insert a disk it starts to revolve the machine says reading, two zeros appear and the it stops. My wife noted a message H02 and the manual says to call for an explanation.

We tried turning the machine off and on and we tried pulling the plug -- no luck. What is the problem?? Jeff

You may have to adjust the POT of the GameCube lens... The POT is basically the power and spread the lens uses to read discs... the problem is, over a long period of time, the POT figure drops down, and if it drops too low, you will need to replace the lens.. The machine could still be salvageable, and play games and load them faster than before if you adjust the POT on the machine.. Here is a guide on what is required to open up the machine and do it, if you feel it necessary....

Won't play DVD's

Are there any stickers on the CD? these disks spin at high revolutions at first then they spin down and run at a constant speed. At first its trying to find the start and end of the disk and any information on it that it can give you about the disk. If the balance is not good it can warble the lens so it cant focus on the info. There are 2 sides of the CD and DVD one usualy has a lable with the title and a picture, the other side is the data side. The data side should always be down and you should look at it in good light to see if there is any finger prints on it or anything stuck to the bottom. I know it sounds dumb but its easy to sit it on somthing and it pick up tape, a sticker, a price tag anything and you are unaware of it.
