Date screen I haven't used our dreamcast in about 2 years, When it powers on we couldn't get passed the screen to put in the date. We bought 2 new controllers and it still will not get passed that screen. We have two dreamcast and they both do the same thing. Help if you can? Thanks.

If you unplug you Dreamcast for extended periods of time the battery in your Dreamcast that saves that info will die (its suppose to last a month but over time they will wear out and not last at all). After 1 hour of gameplay (assuming the battery is still working, as Li's wear out) the battery will be fully charged and last a month.

I just bought a dreamcast off ebay. The console powers on and then goes to the set time/date screen. I plug in both controllers and neither will change the settings...Are both controllers broke or is it a...


controller circuit board problem,,internal battery needs to be replaced, it blue and looks like a watch batt,,it is marked in the controller board as BT1.

Also on the controller board is a resistor or transistor marked F1 that needs to be replaced. You will need to do some soldering but it's not that difficult. They are colour coated so make sure you get the right one. They are very cheap and the battery can be picked up at walmart for under 10$

I have a sega dreamcast but i can't change the date. what can i do. do i need f1 fuse.


At first mine would do the same thing, so I thought. What you should try doing is go to "settings" and change the date, then go down on the list and change the memory card date settings. If that doesn't work then I'm really sorry I wasted your time.

Setting Day/date on Helbros wrist watch


As an extra tip, to advance the date a little faster, you can turn the stem and rotate the hours past midnight and keep going until you pass 2 AM, then you can wind backwards, going past about 8:30 and you will hear a 'click', then you can go past 12 am again and the date will change. This makes it a little quicker to advance the date several days.

Dreamcast freezes.


take apart your dreamcast and look at the controller input circuit board, there should be a big resistor on near one of the boards corners, make a note of the coloured bands and buy a new resistor with the same pattern and replace the one already on the board with the new one.

DC doesn't go past set date screen.


try charging the console for about 30 minutes

the console has a rechargeable battery inside that needs to be charged

if the main menu keeps on moving on the background most probably the fusible resistor on the controller board is busted it has to be replaced

Change all ink message


Your Lexmark cartridges may be like my HP ones--they have a chip that the machine reads so they cannot be reused without doing some tricks to fool the printer.

My HP remembers the last 2 or 3 cartridges and also will not use ones that have passed the expiration date that is stamped on the cartridge. I'll tell you what worked for my HP.

Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.
