If you are getting the specific message, "An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions." This means there may be an internal problem with the system.

Well, nothing special on the instruction booklet.. I had experienced the same problem, and I am sure is a bug on the game that under some unknown conditions it halts and need to be reseted...

Sometimes, just a speck of dust (which can be removed by cleaning the disk) or scratch in a particular spot on the disk can cause this. But as my GC gets older and more worn this happens more frequently.

    1. Check Individual Game Disc problems or Multiple Game Disc problems (depending upon how many games exhibit the problem) to see if the cause of the message is a dirty or damaged disc.

    SOURCE: an error has occured

    It sounds like the error you would get if you put in a Mini-DVD of something that isn't a GameCube disc... it sounds like you may need to send the machine to Nintendo to check for you... alternatively, you could buy a GameCube ScrewDriver + ScrewBit (http://www.mod-chip.com) and open the machine up... have a look at this google video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=287148722109597025 on how to dismantle a GameCube... you should just try take the top half off, and then put it back on.. it SHOULD fix it, if nothing has burned or anything.. I just have no idea how it could have happened...

    SOURCE: everytime i try to start

    The game could have scratches or been out of the case for too long. Sometimes games don't work if you don't treat it with care.
