Dreamcast cuts out after or during the startup screen, stops displaying audio and video. If a disk is inside, it doesn't shows no signs of even being on aside from the power LED and the fan. The system...


This is probably the most ridiculous thread I've ever read in regards to the most common fault of the Sega Dreamcast. The issue is not with the laser - if it was unable to read the disc, it wouldn't read the disc.
The issue is actually with the pins that connect to the motherboard. They corrode and burn out over time. This can be fixed by cleaning with a high percentage alcohol.
Make sure you have unplugged and turned off the console for a couple of hours beforehand.
And before you open it up, press the on button to check for any remaining power.

No picture&sound while Dreamcast is on


This may sound kind of crazy, but I was swapping my dreamcast from one shell to another (from the standard white/gray into a blue case) and I got the same behavior if the case wasn't put together properly. For me, just taking the top half of the case off by removing the four screws on the underside was enough to get it to boot properly... I'm guessing the cause of your problem is different, but I figure it couldn't hurt to pass along what I've learned...

My dreamcast power wont come on


Be sure to check that your power outlet is supplying enough power by plugging in another game console or even something like a DVD player into the same outlet.

Also try finding another power cable and try that.
Cables can be worn out through time and cable failure can be common.
Dreamcast power cables are a standard type and can be found on other machines like boom boxs, DVD players or simply sold as generic replcament power cables.

If your outlet works fine for other machines and the Dreamcast continues this problem with other power cables then it is safe to assume that the power unit in the dreamcast is damaged somehow.

In most cases this would warrent a replacment.
Used Dreamcasts are cheap and not hard to find.

I do not suggest salvaging another power unit from another machine as this can be harder than its worth overall.

Audio but no picture


Try using another RF cable. If that doesn't work then open up the system, and clean it out. Make sure there's no dust or anything that shouldn't be in there.
