Re: Red button on gamecube controller

This is simple. Just open up the GC controller by unscrewing the screws on the back. When you get to the front, take the buttons out and clean them. If it still doesn't work, that means your button pad is torn and you will have to buy a new controller.

How do I fix a gamecube controller's control stick when it is loose or broken?

You can either replace the joystick controller module if you are handy with soldering, or you can send/take it to a repair shop and they will do it. Those are the only two ways to fixing a loose gamecube controller.

How do you use a Gamecube controller on the Wii ?

Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.

Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.

My gamecube will turn on to set the settings, after I set them I put in a disc and then the power shuts off. I have two sets of power cords I tried them both and it does the same thing with each of them.

  • System settings were lost:
    You need to reset the time and date from the Nintendo GameCube Main Menu. To access the Main Menu, turn the power ON while holding down the A button on the controller. Follow these steps to reset the time and date:
    1. From the Main Menu Screen, go to the Calendar Screen by pushing RIGHT on the Control Stick.
    2. Press the A Button to display Calendar Menu choices of Date or Time.
    3. Use the Control Stick (UP or DOWN) to highlight your menu item and press the A Button to select your choice.
    4. Use the Control Stick (LEFT or RIGHT) to highlight the number you want to change, then (UP or DOWN) to adjust the value.
    5. Press the A Button to accept your choice.
    6. Press the B Button to return to the Calendar Menu or the Main Menu.
    7. Pressing the B Button before accepting your choice with the A Button will return you to the Calendar Menu without changing the settings.
    If the same error continues to happen, you will need to have your system repaired as it is likely you have an internal battery malfunction. Please use our convenient repair options.

    Nintendo game cube says an error has occurred,said to turn it off and check the instruction booklet

    Is it the game or the game cube that is doing that. If it is the game then it is probably scratched. Try using toothpaste to clean. If it is the game cube that is broken then open it up and see if anything looks broken

    Wii and Gamecube controllers do not work for Wii

    Perhaps this is a stupid question, but have you synced your controllers lately?

    Open the little drop over under the disk tray (the place where you put the SD card) and press and hold the red button in there, open the battery cover for the wiimote and press and hold that little red button. Wait till both the controller and the system respond. Basically, they have to find eachother again.

    I hope this helps.

    Gamecube controller [suddenly] not working with Wii

    logic 3 controllers are not good, return the logic 3 controller to the store and buy a NINTENDO wavebird instead, i bought mine used and it is perfectly fine. you might have the controller plugged into port (....[4]) instead of port ( . [1]) so try that or buy a wavebird instead ( if you ask me , buy the wavebird). I think my sister's friend's brother had the same problem. But he gave up on it. Probably faulty. Third party gamecube and wii accessories (excluding nyko) are bad or do not last very long.
