This is quite a common problem, it's to do with the two prongs on the PSU, Sega recommended to try putting some WD40 on them, leave over night then connect the power lead back and try again, however, if it still happens your PSU is flocked and it's time for a new Dreamcast I'm afraid :thumbsup1:

I think i mentioned how to fix that in my GD-ROM guide, or one of them, its this set of prongs on the PSU that you have to squeeze together with pliers actually. (and its really like 5 or 6 prongs but only two of them effect this)

 

yeah, the two prongs which the cord connects too...
