Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

My game cube unit freezes up after maybe an hour of use and tells me to refer to the owners manual - which is missing . . . I tried another disc and after 30 or 40 minutes of play the second disc froze up as well. Any suggestions?

One option is to rid the system of dust.
Take a vacuum to the holes on the sides.
Same can be done with a can of compressed air, getting better results.
You can also try taking some alcohol on a qtip and gently cleaning the laser lens with a slow clockwise motion. Not too firm.
Sadly, there's no way to open it unless you're a licensed Nintendo tech.

Every time i put my brand new (purchased two hours ago) call of duty black ops game, the screen goes to the XBOX 360 screen, and freezes there. the hard drive i have for my console is also brand new, well...

firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

The cube says "No Disc". I tried all the discs,

Missing licence

You will have to contact Logitech regarding this problem.

Ask them why they make a remote control that requires a license because it seems rather odd.

If you can connect it to the internet for an update try that. Refer to your owners manual.
