Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

When I bought my gamecube, those games were working perfectly. The laser stopped working and I bought two new lasers. I tried with both of them, and they could only recognize the game in the menu with the pot adjusted to 90 ohms, but when I start the game, it responds with an error message. I tried ...

Re: Gamecube can't read burned discs after correct instalation of Xeno

All my burned games worked with my old laser. It stopped working and I bought a new one. Since then, it doesn't recognize the burned games, only original ones, which works perfectly.

Re: Gamecube can't read burned discs after correct instalation of Xeno

I tried until 20 ohm, when it recognized only one full size dvd, but when I enter the game, appears an error message.

Gamecube can't read burned discs after correct instalation of Xeno

I bought a DOL-101 USA Gamecube, a new laser and a new Xeno chip. I changed the Gamecube's laser and adjusted the potentiometer to 180 ohms to try to run an original game, and it worked. After that, I installed the Xeno chip correctly and tried to run some games. The original games worked, but the b...

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I bought a new cube and a new laser. I changed the laser and soldered the xeno chip on the new cube. It reads the original discs instantly, but it keeps trying to read the burned discs without success. I started the cube pressing the start button and the Xeno page loaded and worked perfectly. I trie...

How to fix SNES cartridges

Yesterday, I picked up three of my non-original SNES cartridges to try to make them playable again. One of them worked perfectly after being heated by a lighter in a few seconds, but the other two didn't worked. Anyone knows any way to try to make them work again?

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I tried to turn on the console pressing the start button with an original game. The screen of Xeno GC appeared, but the disc stopped spinning and the screen froze. The chip seems to be installed correctly and working, but something in gamecube is preventing it to perform its function

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

One of the wires was broken, so I changed it and now I'm on the same situation of the video. The chip is working and tries to read the disc, but without success. The pot is adjusted to 190, the laser is new and I already tried burning dvd from three different computers, on Emtec, Ridata and Multilas...

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

The disc starts spinning and stops immediately, I know it's caused by a bad install, but I don't know what was my mistake when I was soldering the chip. Is there any way to know what point wasn't solded correctly? Using a multimeter or something like that

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I bought a new Xeno GC and installed it using wires on alternative installation points. My GameCube can read normally all original games, but when I put any burned disc, it tries to read, and a few seconds later appears "NO DISC" on the screen. Could it be a bad install or a defective chip? The lase...

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I changed the laser and it worked. When I tried to reinstall the xeno gc, its leds doesn't turn on. I tried to solder it using wires and soldering directly on the board, but without success. Is the xeno gc dead? Is there a way to do the soldering on the xeno chip in other places?

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I successfully removed the Xeno chip. Before reinstalling it using wires, I calibrated the laser to 180 ohms and tried to run an original disc. The disc starts spinning and the laser tries to read the disc, but then the disc stops and the gamecube shows the message "no disc".

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

Remove xeno? Well, it can be a little difficult because the xeno chip is solded directly on the board, with no wires. But if the problem is with xeno, original games should be readed, doesn't they?

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

The LED lights are orange all the time. When the laser tries to read the disc, the LED lights turns on, but when it moves to the other side, Xeno's lights turns off. When the disc is spinning, the lights are orange, but when it stops spinning, the lights turn off, turning on again when it starts spi...

GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

I bought my DOL-001 GameCube in January and modded it with the xeno chip a few days later. I calibrated the laser from 520 to 180 ohms and it worked fine until this week. I turn on my GameCube with or without a disc inside it and the disc reader starts making some "clicking" noise and it doesn't rec...

Re: Gamecube Modchip options in 2017

If I have to choose between Xeno or Viper modchip, which one should I choose for a greater durability of the disc reader and the console?
