Re: DC doesn´t has image
There is no video and/or audio. There could be a number of reasons for this. Check the following first:
Make sure the brightness adjustment on the TV is not turned down.
The Power Cable should be firmly plugged into the back of Dreamcast and also into a working outlet.
Make sure your TV is plugged into a working outlet.
Make sure Dreamcast and the TV are turned on.
If you're using the Stereo A/V cables: Make sure the Stereo A/V cable is firmly plugged into Dreamcast. Make sure the other end of the Stereo A/V cable is correctly plugged into the audio/video terminals on the back of your TV: yellow plug to yellow video terminal, white plug to the white (left) audio terminal, and red plug to the red (right) audio terminal. If your TV has only one audio terminal, use the white plug in the audio terminal and leave the red plug unplugged.
Make sure your television input (Television/Video switch) is set to Video.
Only use a Sega authorized Stereo A/V cable (part #MK-50157), RF Unit (part #MK-50159), and Power Cable (part #MK-50158).
If your TV has more than one set of A/V input terminals, try different A/V input terminals. Make sure to set the TV to the correct auxiliary setting. Refer to your television's operating manual to ensure you have made the proper settings. If necessary, try different A/V input terminals. When doing this, be careful of electric shock. Unplug both Dreamcast and the TV before checking the plugs and terminals.
If you're using the RF Unit: Securely plug the TV OUT cable from the RF Unit into the TV and the A/V IN cable from the RF Unit into the A/V OUT terminal located on the back of the Dreamcast console. Make sure to set the TV to the correct channel.

Whew, nice to have someone who tells an entire problem.
it's possible that dust IS an issue, but i doubt it. You console is probably falling under the same problem that all the old consoles have been facing lately... they are OLD. Your most likely right in the fact that your laser is probably getting weak and is having a hard time reading the disc. Try to play another game or something and see what happens. If the same sort of problem, chances are it's the laser. If there's NO problem with another game, then chances are it's the disc. Hope this helps you.
The Dreamcast is no longer supported because it was to easy to copy the games, but there are still a loyal few who keep the scene alive. I have no idea how much you want to put into fixing the problem, but the only way to fix your problem is flashing the Dreamcast BIOS.
First off, NEVER store a game console on top of a subwoofer. It is like a giant magnet, and electronic devices do not handle magnetics. I don't think i've ever heard of a VGA box, Sega brand or not, killing a console. Millions use aftermarket AV cables and adaptors on all consoles without problem. I think it likely died from being on top of the sub. Relocate it and you should be fine. Running it for a few hours isnt likely either unless you had the vents entirely blocked.
To the guest who's drive isnt spinning, I would say your drive motor has burnt out. This doesn't indicate a defect in Dreamcasts, per se, it just means bad luck or excessive dust which killed it. Either buy a different Dreamcast or see if you can find a drive replacement.
Hope this helps.
