What exactly happened mate? Because 22 years w/o issues may be just a matter of some simple fixable thing. It would be a pity imo to trash a working DC motherboard. Uh just in case it simply stopped reading discs, put the DC upside down when on power.

@9dragons Nice thing also if your DC only needs a few fixable parts you can send that into the molders have them fix and mod.

There are 2 problems. Disc reading issues, the game starts normal but then after a few minutes the console reboots. Thanks for the advice though. I will try out the upside down trick

But there also issues with the video signal. Sometimes the signal is not transmitted to the TV. I am not sure though if is the fault of the console or the Gekko HDMI box. To clarify that I will visit my parents house tomorrow to get my old RGB Scart cable I get together with the console in 2000. It is in the basement in my parents house.

@BruceWayne911 You are right. Maybe it is too early to write the dc of completely. I will figure out ways to maybe fix it.

The reading reboot issue is mainly due to:
- The disc lid getting loose so the sensor believes its open. "fix" like pointed or just put a brick or a bible on top of it.
- Laser decalibrated or aged. There's plenty of tutorials for workaround it but imo its better just get the part replaced.

I ignore if a power supply problem could affect into DC rebooting but it probably won't be the case.

Thats a clever step with the video signal issue, lets cross fingers its the cable or box rather than console. I relate to it because hardware reading and video issues at once sounds weird.. It usually fails first at disc read and later, after long time becoming worse, the rest of system.

Thanks for the info. And yes it is totally possible that video signal issue is due to the gekko hdmi Box. The box is great but I have read quite often that the cables of the gekko are very fragile. So maybe that's the main issue. I will test it tomorrow even asap right after I get home after the dinner at my parents house with the RGB cable.

Never heard about that game before but looks like cool indy game if you like the genre


It is also available for modern systems like ps4. But if I get it I will go for the DC version.

ps: Small update for my DC. With RGB cable the console is still giving a image and the book trick recommend by @Seaman fixed the re starting issue. At least for the time being. Was playing Carrier yesterday one hour and had no issues.

I have all of them, still packed away at my parents' house. Bought them all around 2006-2010, when they were still cheap. Issue 1 (Sonic Adventure) is the rarest and most expensive to find.

Yes I would also ay that the tumbnail looks a bit like him. Not sure if this outfit is even in the game. I have not played it yet so maybe Sega Lord X was just creative or this a cyborg ninja like outfit in the game.

It is ok for now. It turned out the dc is still working with rbg scart cable it seems that just the gekko hdmi box has some flaws. The re starting issue has been also solved for me with putting a heavy book on the lid of the DC.
