Are you using a wireless controller, if so thats the problem most of the time, just interference, if not try another controller, if it still occurs try returning the console, also try a different game just to be sure but that probably not the problem.sounds to me like it's most likely a bad controller.

Dreamcast "please insert disc"


I noticed you said and I quote "a copy of an original game in chinese" you did say chinese right? Is it possible that the system you have may be a PAL system if so that means it's not a USA Region console meaning it won't play Region 1 USA games just PAL

Dreamcast wont power on


sounds like a fuse gone

there's one on the plug? (In uk there is)
There is a glass fuse inside the machine
So take it apart and look at it (close to the where the power goes into the machine
If there is no wire in the glass take it out and get a replacement at an electric shop.
DO NOT JUST PUT ANY OLD BIT OF WIRE IN THERE!

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.

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.

Dreamcast Loading problem


you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.
