I would say that that it is probably not reversable, it just happens with age, BUT, you can slow the process. Just keep it in a closet behind everything so that way no humid air gets to.

It will freeze in the middle of game play a some games not play

I believe your device is overheating, you need to make sure that the Dreamcast is well ventilated, don't set it on a carpet or enclosure. BLow any dust from the unit, pull the Dreamcast out of whatever nook it is sitting in, and set it on a flat surface like a hard cover book, etc. See if your issues resolve themselves.

Game doesnt continue after pressing start to play

Try opening the system (look on youtube for how), and use either a tank vacuum, can of compressed air, or air compressor to get the dust out. It worked for me.

Freezing problem with Games

The Dreamcast is no longer supported because it was to easy to copy the games, but there are still a loyal few who keep the scene alive. I have no idea how much you want to put into fixing the problem, but the only way to fix your problem is flashing the Dreamcast BIOS.

Modification 101:

The Dreamcast is basically a computer; with the right programming you can do anything; and having a Dreamcast Keyboard is nice.

DC stops and starts games periodically

~Open up the dreamcast
~remove the Powerboard (located to the left houses power supply)
~get baby wipes or facial wipes and clean the pins
~dry with toilet paper
~put it all back together

That will fix it ^_^. i had this problem as well and didn't play my DC for years then i stumbled on a youtube video and now it works great never restarts. have fun playing old games again.
