Re: Loud GD-ROM motor fix...

Some castor oil in your ear drums you'll find the noise will vanish. I used a bit of machine oil on the laser runners the 2 shiny rods that run between the laser. And the spiral mechanism at the back. Don't pour it all over the place. Use a cotton bud and apply it sparingly.

Re: Region Changer 1.5

Yeah I got a spare motherboard and am good at de soldering I would rather change the bios chip than do the OC mod again to be honest. Thanks for the kind offer though and your help. Will report back as to whether this is successful as I notice I am not alone with this black swirl of death. Cheers.

Re: Region Changer 1.5

If you get ahold of the Dreamcast mod chip, it will probably work. That's interesting. But the thing is upon selecting start game or loading of a disc it will ask for the time and date again. The controller board is perfect so it's not a battery issue. So maybe I am as Familyguy put it F**cked. But...

Re: Dreamcat controller port repair?

Have you kept the same controller each time you replaced your dreamcast's? And also what kind of controllers are you using?

Also please look around the site before asking questions what you are looking for can be right in front of you.

Re: Region Changer 1.5

Is there any hard way of resetting the bios region or defaulting like a small current or something? As this is the Dreamcast that I overclocked successfully and really don't fancy doing it again so soon. I downloaded eeprom eraser and the latest flashing disk but nothing I put in will boot.

Re: DC reset problem - n00b, please bear with me

Have you done any hardware modifications? If not check the orange cable from your fan to your controller port. Sounds like your system is rebooting cause it thinks your fan isn't spinning. Also one method that worked for a resetting DC was cleaning the contact pins on the power supply, the six pins ...

Re: Region Changer 1.5

I would like to add that I did this modification just to set my Pal system to Ntsc colour system along with the 60hz boost. All was well until yesterday. When I finished a marathon of house of the dead. Upon rebooting the swirl became black and a new swirl appeared in the top left corner and I am re...

Re: Official DC Overclocking thread

I did the same but mine freezes it depends on the speed you flip it but imo I would highly suggest not doing it as there is nothing to gain from it anyway, that's a shame about not booting though cause I was gonna go for 260 next also.
