Hi Re-Be,

 

My Best guess on a solution would be to disassemble the Dream cast and clean up any dust and lint that haas built up inside the unit.  This is about the main thing that knocks the power out in the fashion you describe.

If your not confortable with doing that, My shop called the Playstation Clinic works on Dream casts. Contact us through my website www.playstationclinic.com

Best of luck and I do think you will have the dreamcast back up with a good cleaning.

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.

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

The Power doesnt't go on


sounds like the power supply on the dreamcast is gone. or on its way out the door.

also could be the mainboard but further testing would be needed.

Sega Dreamcast console problem


First off, NEVER store a game console on top of a subwoofer. It is like a giant magnet, and electronic devices do not handle magnetics. I don't think i've ever heard of a VGA box, Sega brand or not, killing a console. Millions use aftermarket AV cables and adaptors on all consoles without problem. I think it likely died from being on top of the sub. Relocate it and you should be fine. Running it for a few hours isnt likely either unless you had the vents entirely blocked.
To the guest who's drive isnt spinning, I would say your drive motor has burnt out. This doesn't indicate a defect in Dreamcasts, per se, it just means bad luck or excessive dust which killed it. Either buy a different Dreamcast or see if you can find a drive replacement.
Hope this helps.
