Troubleshooting - Multiple Discs

  1. Some games may need to be cleaned. Clean each disc with a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean them from center towards the edges; do not use a circular motion. DO NOT use paper. Once they are cleaned, dry the disc using a dry portion of the cloth and wiping in the same style as you did to clean the discs. After all of the water is gone, let the discs sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting any of them into the Nintendo GameCube.
  2. Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
  3. Ensure the games are being loaded properly. With the power turned off on the system, replace a Game Disc (printed side up) in the system, press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen. Try this with a few of your games.
If Troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, and it is happening with all your games, then your system will need repair. Check out our convenient repair options.
Its posswible that the disc might be scratched then.

Put disk in and the Gamecube keeps saying there is not disk..wtf?


Your Gamecube reader lens may be dirty. Take some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and rub it lightly and carefully on your Gamecube lens. If this does not work, it could be your Gamecube discs. Sometimes Gamecube discs can get worn out, and no longer work. Another possibility is the reading lens is completely broken. You will have to buy a Nintendo Game Bit tool to open your Gamecube, and replace the lens with a new lens that you will have to buy. I hope this helped.

Manual for kirby air ride- can'nt start game as it says to read manual?


Usually this is just a problem with the gamecube reading the disk. Try taking out the disk and cleaning it with a disk cleaner.

My gamecube freezes in the middle of a game and says an error has occured, it tells me to check the gamecube manual but i don't have one! PLEASE HELP!


  • An Error has occurred:
    If you are getting the specific message, "An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions." This means there may be an internal problem with the system.
    1. Check Individual Game Disc problems or Multiple Game Disc problems (depending upon how many games exhibit the problem) to see if the cause of the message is a dirty or damaged disc.
    2. If the disc appears fine or works properly in another system, this means there is an internal problem with the system. A repair will need to be set up. Please use our convenient repair options.

    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.
