    I've done some work on these items before.

    In the case of the GameCube, you have to use a special screwdriver bit in order
    to unfasten the security screws on the console.

    If you are having problems with the GameCube, why don't you try to consult with
    Nintendo customer service first?

    I had a GameCube with disc read problems and Nintendo did an exchange of the
    console free of charge, even though it was out of warranty by more than half a
    year. I didn't have to haggle to get it, either. - Reinhart

    I would guess you're not going to worry with Nintendo about a return. So,
    in order to open up the Gamecube itself, you'll need an adapter (tool)
    called a "gamebit". Tthey make two sizes of these, one is small and used on
    games cartridges, the larger version opens up the game systems. They can be
    found on the internet for about $7-10 dollars each. The most common problem
    with these is a disc error. It requires some minute adjustment on the
    laser. Not too complicated but you can trash a unit if your not careful.
    The instructions for this can also be found on the internet.

  4. The most common problem
    It must be noted that this is not a surefire way of fixing this problem.

    According to a Nintendo certified tech that I talked with at a local repair
    shop, this is primarily due to design fault in the disc drive.

    At the risk of using a cliche, tweaks and adjustments will only delay the
    I still recommend calling Nintendo and seeing if they will grant an extension
    of the warranty so you can ship the console off to them for an exchange for
    free. You get a reconditioned console instead of tinkering around with a
    console that may be on its way out. - Reinhart
