So, I got a Dreamcast and some games for christmas. Shenmue and Tony Hawk have always given me that error. The Phantasy Star Online disk which i received a few days ago, completely new, sealed, worked up until a yesterday Now nothing works.
After quick searching on the internet, i followed a guide to recalibrate my laser. That worked for an hour or so, i played Chu Chu rocket once, but apparently, the fix didn't stick, and when i put sonic adventure 2 in, it failed, and so did my flawless phantasy star online disk.
According to my research, recalibrating the laser would help. After 3 hours of messing with a potentiometer, i got to play Sonic Adventure 2 for about 5 minutes before the audio slowly stopped working, playing things at the wrong time, etc. I turned it off and on, to see if the audio would fix itself, but then it wouldn't work at all.
I have checked all my disks for disk rot, and found that Chu-Chu Rocket is the only disk I have that has absolutely no disk rot that i can see. After finding that out, i played with the pot for another hour, using Chu-Chu Rocket disk instead of Sonic, but to no avail.
Is there any way to fix this, or just replace something? If i do just have to replace something, what do i have to replace, and does any place sell just it without having to buy a whole new dreamcast?
PS and semi-offtopic: Hi, i'm new here! As soon as I get my dreamcast working, I'll get back to playing my lvl 15 HuMar, and then when i find a BBA, I can play with real people!
