For any console that has a non-working fan, i would suggest sending it to the retrailer for a new one or have it repaired. If you want to upgrade, you can find companies on the internet that will install more powerful fans for you.

How do I get the fish I catch into my empty bottle?

Instead of catching a fish in the fishing pond, you need to find a shallow area of water (there's one in the Zora caverns near the Zora shop) and stand in it. Then, assign the empty bottle to a C button, and press that C button to use it. When you are near a fish in the shallow water and use your bottle, the bottle will scoop up the fish. You can then feed it to Jabu Jabu.

I have a problem with my dreamcast. It starts running a game for about five seconds and stops spinning, How do I fix this?

If you’re running your DC on the floor with a chunky carpet then try elevating it. The fan at the side of the unit may be struggling to ventilate the inside properly. Giving it enough height so the fan is not covered up will help. Likewise if it is running next to a heat source move it away. Also, make sure the disc you are using is not badly scratched or has grime on it. Sometimes if grime builds up too much the DC will refuse to boot the game. If the disc looks good then clean the laser as dust builds up on it over time as well.

The easiest way would be with a cotton bud and to carefully rub the end over the lasers eye. This should remove any dust in there. But alternately you could use a CD lens cleaner CPC or with tissue very gently rub over it with your finger.
