My dreamcast is screeching


My dreamcast just starting making this really high pitched screeching noise when the cd is spinning inside of it. I looked around google and it seems to be a common problem. My question is, has anyone had this happen and was able to fix it? I really cant stand the sound of it…


Well after no luck finding a solution on the web I ended up unscrewing the plastic cover that sits over the laser and the cd-rom motor and blowing it out with some dust-off. And much to my surprise when I turned it back on the noise went away! Maybe its just coincidence, but whatever, my dreamcast is now nice and quiet again.
