Half-Dead Gamecube? Distorted Sound & Greenscreen

Post by AntKingNo1 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 4:40 pm

Hello there fellow GameCube lovers!

My GameCube console is having a severe problem in loading up games properly and playing sound.

All the sound, from the startup music to menu sounds, are all heavily distorted and buzzing. On top of that, most games are not being loaded. Metroid Prime 2 just stays dark after the red Nintendo logo. But Pokemon colosseum freezes with a green screen (more flickerish green) after I'm able to choose the frequency of my tv (either ends up with a frozen screen).

I recorded the problem:

And another picture:

Might anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

Thanks!

Jason

Fyi: I formerly had problems with the lens but I adjusted the resistance of the laser so that it again could read discs.

Edit:
Weirdly enough: Pokemon channel works! (With distorted sound though)

Sounds like the ARAM might be having issues. Ideally try to run a backup of the service disk if nothing looks obviously wrong around the high speed port area

Thanks for the suggestion! I just completed trying to load an iso of the Gamecube Service Disk via swiss (had to wait for an sd media launcher to ship to me). But unfortunately, the loading of the iso ends in a black screen (after a long patching of swiss itself with constant 'failed to find necessary functions for patching' messages).

On the motherboard itself I can't seem to find anything unusual: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1gVHPO ... FicwKhYCnB

Might you have any other suggestions worth checking out?

You should probably burn a disc for this.
