I heard its because a resistor blows in the control board. You can get a replacement control board, like this:

Ask toodles, but there are multiple threads for this already. I think it’s time we sticked one of these.

Basically you open your Dreamcast and swap them pin by pin and cable by cable.
Actually after taking a second look at that price I think it might be cheaper and less work to buy another used Dreamcast

You can also use this method:

If that’s whats wrong with your DreamCast that is.

Unfortunately the pictures are gone, though they were still up about a week ago… I had a feeling I should have saved them!
