Hello there fellow console enthusiasts!

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:


Might anyone have an idea on how to fix this?



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

Could still be an issue with your laser. Adjusting the resistance pot without the correct tools is only a temporary solution. Chances are that u need a new laser. Also check the heat sink paste and replace if needed.
