Question about Nintendo GameCube Console

Game Cube will not read disks. Please help!

Every time we put a game in it runs for 30 seconds or so then stops and says there is an error and to read the instruction booklet. Some are a little scratched, but I dont see how all the games can not be read at the same time due to scratches! Is there any good way to clean them, or is it a console problem maybe?

    The game cube will not read any of the disk. There is no error message. When I put the disk in the game cube it goes straight to the sytem menu. I think it may be something wrong with the "eye" that reads the games. what can I do?

You can clean the disks using tap water and then drying with soft cloth have you tried a lense cleaner to clean the laser on the cube get a good brand one not a cheap one also you can buy a disk cleaner that gently takes the scratches out of cds and gets them as new but you will have to shop around to get one but these work on anything cd dvd games the lot so deff worth having one as lots of people throw out dvds cd and games due to the scratches stopping them working but remember the data on a disk isnt on the plastic it is on the layey the other side of plastic the plastic is their to protect the data getting damaged so removing the scratches does not damage the disk if you have scratches this will affect the disk because the laser cant read through the scratch so polishing these scratches out will make the disk as new not many people know you can do this so consider yourself having privalaged info hope this is some help to you but you might have to ask arround for a disk repair so good luck you could even charge people to repair their disks and games this works for anything on a cd style disk.........................................................

OXO doesn't provide a link to download the instruction booklet for this model, but I own it too, and this is what I've learned:

To set clock:

  1. Press and hold clock/timer button for 3 seconds (clock icon will appear on left side of screen).
  2. Input time using keypad then quickly press clock/timer button to save.
To set timer:

  1. Press and release clock/timer button.

  4. Press stop/start to begin countdown.
  5. Pause countdown by pressing stop/start; resume by pressing button again.
  6. When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for 30 seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every 10 seconds for 10 minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
  7. Press clock/timer button to return to clock function.
To time activities:

I'm assuming that you're referring to OXO's Digital Timer Model #1061978. OXO doesn't provide a copy of the instruction booklet for download, but I also own this timer, and this is what I've learned:

Every time I put in my sonic adventure battle 2, it says "Error ocurred please go to the gamecube instruction booklet for details" but I can't find it!


Your instruction booklet will have no more details than there are on the internet, so this is the place to look. Also, "Sonic Adventure Battle 2" could be warn out. If you play this game disc a lot, it could be warn out. It could also be your Gamecube reader. It could be dirty, or broken. Try putting some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and rub the q-tip carefully and gently on the reader.

The game disk could not be read.


It sounds like the disc reader is dirty, it's the little clear circle right under where a disc would go, closest to the back of the unit.
To clean, open disc cover, locate the disc reader, use a dry soft towel or some toilet paper and gently wipe it off, sometimes even a little dust can cause a problem. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, then either the disc is scratched or the Game Cube has something wrong with it.
hope this helps!

Gamecube won't read disks.


run a cd cleaner in the console, see if that works , you can buy them at any music store or even most suermarkets, or the laser could need ajusting , which will mean you need to take it to a service place, laser adjusting is not exspensive ,
