SOURCE: Can't seem to play the games

Sounds bad
the contacts for the carts may be worn
get a credit card, cloth and head cleaning fluid.
put the cloth around the card and a few drops of liquid and push in to the slot and clean the contacts.
make sure none are bent out of place.
if cleaning won't help then you may need to open up and look at the contacts for dry joints; a blob of solder may help.
failing that you may need to look on ebay for a replacement console (you won't need the leads so it shouldn't cost more than a tenner including postage)

SOURCE: Sega Saturn doesn't boot correctly. Can't play games.

This could be a situation where the Laser Lens voltage is off and it is not reading CDs. I have had this before.

You will have to take your case off, and look for a little orange "screw" or "dial" which is just above the cable that connects the laser assembly to the circuit board. It might have a Philips head looking top.

Make sure the system is off and unplugged before doing this.

Turn the orange screw approx 35 degrees clockwise, and the reassemble the system. This should give the laser enough juice to start reading the discs again.

If this is not the solution, it is possible your clock battery is dead. Buy a new CR2032 3Volt battery from wal-mart or your local watch store, and pop it into your top right (on the back of the system) compartment to fix this.

Good Luck!

Dirty laser, failing laser. I'd try to clean the lens in a circular motion with a DRY q-tip.
Let me know if that works ;)

This is a common problem with the Sega Saturns, what you need to do is take the top of the Saturn off so you can get under the hub. Then you need to gently pry up on the spindle hub from underneath until it slides up the shaft of the motor. You have to be careful when you pry it up though, because you can damage the motor. A pair of pliers works best, because you can kind of rock the tool from side to side and get it to slide up that way. It doesn't take much to fix the problem so just go slow.

It sounds like its definitely something wrong with the system. There must be something about this game that the system is having trouble reading correctly. I don't see there being much of a fix for this unless maybe you brought it in to a local game shop and had let look at it.

Game says disc drive empty , wont play


chances are the laser is either dusty or has stopped working all together, try buying a cd lense cleaning kit and running this in the computer, that may solve the problem, or go to computer shop and buy a small can of compressed air and give it a good blast out inside to get any dust out, if this dont work then this means the laser is no goof and been a sega saturn the chances are it would be cheaper to buy a replacement console than it would to get the laser changed,

When I turn on the Saturn and place a game in the drive. and close the door. It gives me a message drive door open.


Sounds like the CD tray is not closing. Try opening up your Saturn and checking on the top-left corner, next to the part you plug your power cable into. There is a small switch that the CD cover presses on, try holding it down while you turn it on with a game in it and the top half of the case off. The game should spin and play. If you tape it down, it should work fine. If that didn't work, try replacing the battery. The battery you need is called a CR-2032. You can get this at you local CVS, Wal-Mart, or any place that sells watch batteries. After you do that, simply pop off the back panel, take out the CR-2032 battery, and pop in the new CR-2032 battery and then it should work. If that worked, congrats for your Sega Saturn being back in action.!

Hi Maguerite

Am I right in thinking that you are trying to play a game made for the Sega Saturn on a PC? If so, it will only work in a Saturn.

Hope this helps
