If you do it for an extended period of time, yes, it will hurt it.

Most newer video game systems, including the GameCube, use lasers to read the discs which hold the games on them. Whenever your system is on and the game is reading, the laser is working. Unfortunately, we are all learning that lasers have limited lifetimes. As a result, leaving your system on pause can cause wear and tear to the laser.

The gamecube has been the most reliable system of its generation. Big reason is that you cannot play DVD movies on it. When you use your Playstation or XBox as a DVD player, it prematurely burns out the laser.

Could you please tell me how my granddaughter can pause her spectrodes ds game as she keeps losing her points when she leaves the game.


Hello there.

Usually, games on DS has a pause option by pressing "START". But there are some games which doesn't have that option, but you can still pause it by "Closing the DS" so it will go to "Sleep". Don't turn it off! Just close it.

Please rate my answer.

Playing Games on HDMI on projetion TV.


Dear aaashleee_x3,
No, it won't hurt your TV. The new games will shut down after a short period of time in the pause mode and the games are fast moving, not like tho old Pac Man games.

Thanks for using FixYa and Merry Christmas, big IRISH.

I have 2 nintendo game cube and they out of 20


If each system will read different specific games, then its the systems. You can get them repaired, but they are honestly so cheap now that you would actually be losing money by not just replacing one (pretty sure it still works out alright for two, just not sure).

Leaving microwave on pause


Unless the control electronics fail, leaving the oven paused won't hurt anything but it will enable someone unfamiliar with to restart it with nothing in the cavity and this can damage the magnetron. Unless you are just checking the food for progress, I wouldn't recommend leaving it paused and 'armed.'

Gaming on a Mitsubishi WS-55511


MetCom, you can use a video game on any rear projection big screen, heres the issue you DO have to be aware of, if you PAUSE the video game for prolonged periods of time it will PERMANENTLY damage all 3 picture tubes in the tv, so heres the trick, when you need to pause the game for more than 2-3 minutes just shut the tv OFF, you`ll never hurt the tubes this way because they aren`t on, when you come back to the game turn on your tv, un-pause the game and "life is good", been doing it for years and I`m a tv tech so trust me and now you know the real answer, pass it on to others and enjoy, BMW Rider
