  • sirioth Jan 19, 2008

    I have the same problem. I got my dreamcast off of E-bay and it works just fine (only for 3 hours). It read all the games great, but in the middle of playing a game it dose this blip like thing on the tv screen then it comes back to the game, but after it did the blip thing the dreamcast wouldent read any of my 4 controllers. I am very angry at this problem. I took me dreamcast apart all the way down to the main chip board and I couldn't find any problems, no burns, no blown fuses or anything like that. please help me.

Clesn the contacts on the controllers with a pencil eraser that is rough, not the soft ones, erasers are good for cleaning contacts! or use contact cleaner spray, but be carefull not to get any on the laser... or sandpaper 2 clean the contacts, if not could be the cable inside has broken!

Dreamcast rules all you need to do is open up the dreamcast and look near the controller ports there will be a big resistor got to radio shack get a new one(the colored stripes identify it) and solder it in or have someone else do it. very easy fix......................... this problem occurs from using 4 controllers with 4 vmu's and 4 rumbles packs all at once. it overloads it.

Hi, my sega dreamcast console won't spin disc, please help!

Hi,

try this youtube guide here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rizeLEQyzs&feature=related, during the video the person will talk about a black plastic leave that gets pushed back by the dreamcast lid. if that lever is not being pushed back the drive will not spin. you can try the suggestion in the guide also.

Hope this helps,

Omeil

My control wont work

did you tested another dreamcast control...you had the same problem...so you have to check the protection Fusistor inside your dreamcast conector controller board....it seems like a blue or green normal resistor...marked as F1 on the board..change it with a simple fuse or an smd fusistor...Good Luck!

When i am in the middle of playing a game on my Sega Dreamcast it will cut out on me sometimes and go to the Dreamcast menu,with the controller and music stuff in background and then it tries to reload the...

Your Dreamcast sounds like it's overheating.

I had the same thing, and the cooling fan was worn out and needed to be replaced. I did this, and now it works like a charm.

Sega Dreamcast screw

The Disc drive has a connector on the bottom that has to mate up with the opposite gender connector on the top of the motherboard. you have to press the Drive down first then put the screws in.
