You should try putting the sensor in a different position then try again.
I had the same problem i pushed the sensor all the way up and it worked fine! If i'm incorrect try cleaning the disk your using. If its happening with multiple disks, try cleaning the sensor its self. But if your cleaning the sensor, be careful because too much pressure will break it.

My disc wont play on my gamecube, its not my gamecube because it plays other games but the disc plays on my wii.


I have the same problem. The Wii has a better lazer eye on it that can read through more scratches and gunk and smudges and stuff than a gamecube. The gamecubes lazer is alot weaker and more touchy and more likely not to play a scratched disc than a Wii would..

The game disk could not be read.


It sounds like the disc reader is dirty, it's the little clear circle right under where a disc would go, closest to the back of the unit.
To clean, open disc cover, locate the disc reader, use a dry soft towel or some toilet paper and gently wipe it off, sometimes even a little dust can cause a problem. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, then either the disc is scratched or the Game Cube has something wrong with it.
hope this helps!

I bought a gamecube online and it wont spin the disk


Sounds like you need the Gamecube sensor switch replaced. That is a small door device for detecting when the Gamecube DVD door or lid is closed allowing disc initiation to begin. When your Gamecube doesn't detect disk at all and simply continues the message: "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC," this is the problem. You can test this by inserting a game disc, opening the Gamecube door, and then closing it. If the message "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC" remains unchanged, and there is no spinning of the disk, then your GameCube lid closed door sensor is probably broken and should be replaced. You can search Google for Part GCPT032, or for GameCube Lid Closed Door Sensor.

An easy fix if you know how to open the Cube. It's cable simply plugs in, and it is held by one tiny screw.

Gamecube Recognizes what game the disc is, but cannot read it


Make sure its in the right way (image facing up) then close the lid and press power button it should load the game up automatically (dont hold a after switching on the gamecube. if it persists take out the disc wipe it again blow on the gamecube to remove and dust then try switching on the gamecube without the disc it should show the menu, press up and there should be a question mark, insert disc, there it should show the game, press 'A' to confirm, then press start if it persists it is recommended you get it checked out because it could be the case that the disc is badly written like my lego starwars 3 on one of the levels it goes wierd and it spoils it really (i think there is a problem with all starwars games personally). Anyway Hope i helped as much as i could.

My gamecube wont read my game disc


Its either the game disc or the lens of the gamecube. Try cleaning the disk or try another disc. If the cube still doesn't read the disk your lens is probably scratched in which case you would need a new gamecube.

My gamecube problems.


If the disc does not spin or spins strangely, it is almost always because the gamecube is having problems reading the disc, and not a problem with the motor. The laser can be adjusted to a higher power, but you will need several special tools to do so. You should be able to find a guide by googling for gamecube laser adjust. If that doesn't solve the problem, you either need to replace the laser or the laser control board.

You may have to adjust the POT of the GameCube lens... The POT is basically the power and spread the lens uses to read discs... the problem is, over a long period of time, the POT figure drops down, and if it drops too low, you will need to replace the lens.. The machine could still be salvageable, and play games and load them faster than before if you adjust the POT on the machine.. Here is a guide on what is required to open up the machine and do it, if you feel it necessary.... http://modthatcube.pxn-os.com/content/pot.htm
