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$

My controller wont work for the sega dreamcast.


well its a blown controller port resistor common issue and let me tell you I just happen to have a bunch laying around there is either two ways we could do this if you are willing to pay shipping I can send you the part needed and then instructions on how to fix it or you can send me the controller port and I will fix it and send it back (if you pay shipping) since the controller port is small shipping wouldnt be much and I can tell you this its more common then not to have this issue.

let me know and we will get this fixed for you.

Wont spin


you will either have to have the DC Laser Lens Big Motor or the complete DC Laser Collectivity replaced. other then that try cleaning the laser and any parts you can and using air to blow the system out those are my only suggestions for you hope that helps.

Parts for them are fairly cheap on ebay and other online shops.


Good luck

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

Sega Dreamcast console problem


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.

Date screen


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.
