Assuming it's a GameCube game, that means there is either an error in the code on the disc, or the disc may be damaged. Take it back to the store you purchased it from, with receipt in hand, and exchange it. If other games work properly then it's the disc that's the problem. The manual wouldn't help you.
Grab a cotton swab (A Q-Tip), and some rubbing alcohol. Lightly wet one end of the cotton swab with the rubbing alcohol and open up your Gamecube's disk tray. LIGHTYLY rub the wet end of the cotton swab on the disks laser in a circular motion. The laser is the shiny part pointed to by red arrows in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/MAXRQ.png
Now leave it for a minute or two to dry and attempt to play a game again. If this doesn't work your problem may be an underlying hardware error that can't be solved without opening up and gutting your gamecube. Let's hope for the best though!
Well no because they don't have the skills or the training or the resources to fix a gamecube console because video game consoles require special care to fix them and special kind of training as well like the Nintendo repair place for an example can fix a gamecube and wii too. I don;t recomend having an electrician to fix your v cube then.
gamecubes are NOT 120 volts you got that from yahoo answers other websites say 12 volts which sounds bout rite i think you need to rethink the problem and post again if that little blue box takes that many 9 volt batteries to power (just an example) then that is not a gamecube but a nintendo god (treat with care)
Well that depends if your trying to play gamecube games on the gamecube or the wii?, i assume your doing it on the wii because anyone would know that a wii control wouldn't work on a gamecube, not impossible, just very hard
wii remotes do work with the nintendo wii on wii games and on gamecube games, but it is better if you use a gamecube controller and plug it into the to holes under the flap, pictured below, hopefully.
There is no way to switch this back and forth, if the rca jacks work and the fr jack doesnot there is a problem extending from the game unit itself which works on a certain amount electrical current to maintain signal which is not required for digital/rca. check your rca connections, if they work then your problem is in the rf converter and it should be replaced and or just purchase a cheap switching unit that splits between the rf and the rca on channels 3 or 4. Good Luck and let me know what happens.
You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!
Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
1. use a clean q-tip
2. put windex on one end
3. gently rub the wet end of the q-tip in a circular motion on the laser lens.
then use the other end and do the same as the wet end
4. pop in a game cube disc and it should work.
if it does not work check the disc and see if it is scratched.
if it is use warm water and mild soap, rub in and rinse. after use a tissue or some thing soft and wipe from inside strate out.
Just found this thread, **Never ever clean the lens with alcohol!** ever. most optical drive lenses are made of Polycarbonate these days and cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol will cause it to yellow and even crack. Use an *alcohol free* CD wipe wrapped around a Q-tip or use *alcohol free* lens cleaning fluid available from any opticians.
If cleaning the lens *and disks* is no help make sure your disks are the same region as your cube, if they are then you are looking at a physical hardware problem.
This can be as simple as a cable that's been jarred loose or as major as a dead drive/drive controller so where you go from here is down to whether you are confident enough to take you're cube apart or not?
If you are re-post this to the premium forum, if not you need to check and see if your cube is still in warranty or not, it's not likely to be but this will depend where you are in the world, when you bought it and where you bought it from.
Alternatively this may be a good excuse to buy a Nintendo Wii as the Wii will happily play your cube games and support your cube controllers/GBA connect cables/cube memory cards. The only Gamecube device the Wii will not support is the Gameboy player.
