If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.

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.

My game disc said it wont read disk plz help ?


try different games in your gamecube and see if it can read any of the other games. If your gamecube isn't reading any games then you know it might be a laser problem. In that case go ahead and take a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and wipe off the laser with it. This will make sure that dust or dirt is not on the laser. If you do this and the gamecube is still not reading games then you know that athe laser is bad and needs to be replaced.

If you can get other games to read but mario sunshine then wipe off the disk on both sides top and bottom making sure that there is no smudges on either side then try having the gamecube read it again. If it doesn't read it still then you know that the game is bad and you would need to get another one.

Ps3 blu-ray player will not work


No it will not.... It surges the disk 2-3 times senses there is a disk and then starts it spinning if there was a disk in there.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

if your gamecube does not read games but the disk spins then it means that your laser assembly is shot if it does not spin then the chances are its your motor hub thats shot.

if it works with some games and not others then chances are the laser assembly needs to be adjusted.

hope this helps.

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.

Disc wont read and game won't spin


I Had The Same Problem! And I Have A Solution. Unscrew the top off and look inside.
there is the off and on switch on the opposite side to the right of it are 2 little switches, they have probably been displaced, they must be held back, the problem is they are running the disks around and it they aren't in the back they wont do anything.The Laser Should Be Cleaned using a Q-tip and Peroxide. Don't Use Too Much Just Clean Off The Laser, If That Doesn't Work, Its A Problem Inside The Machine, And is Extremely Hard To Fix, If Thats Your Problem, I Would Just Buy A New One For 99$ Rather Then Paying 80$ For Some Guy To Look At It And Say You Cant Fix It, If He Can Fix It, You Were Lucky, But If I Were You, I Wouldn't Take That Chance, Try What I Said, It Worked For Me, Now My Cube Is As Good As New. XD
I Really Hope This Has Helped You.
