I disassembled my sega dreamcast, and now when I tighten the screw on the metal disk-reading part (the whole thing) it starts to lift up. What's the problem. It's the disk reading part with two screws that screws it into the console. How can I tighten the last screw without the whole thing lifting up. I can only screw in the screw part of the way before it starts to lift up. Is this normal. How can I screw back in the last screw without the whole thing lifting up. I know it's supposed to lie down when all of the screws are screwed in, but this last screw by the power supply is keep making it lift up. The model number for my sega dreamcast is HKT-3020 please help!

If I recall the Sega Dreamcast wheel is a clasp type wheel. You need to push the disk down onto the wheel and you will hear it secure itself onto the wheel. Then close the wheel and you should be good to go. Don't just place it on the wheel... push it down until you here that little clicking sound and it should stay on the wheel.
yea it's either the disc is not a disc of the country u are in or the disc may be damaged... also.. u can't install disc onto a sega dreamcast... if' it's backup games that u are playing u will need a boot disc... u can google it.. it's commonly called dreamcast boot disc and the image file is free on the net...
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.
you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.
cripes I think you may have mixed your screws up?
1 it sounds like you are using a self tapping screw (it has a greater distance between each layer) rather than the tight screws which are for fitting the circuits together.
2 I believe there are three screw holes for the disc reading part of the dreamcast and you really only need two to keep the disc player in place, so also try another hole.
3 and one last thing to check you haven't put a screw underneath the board already?
