    I had a similar problem with my PS2. I had to take it apart and clean the lazer lense with rubbing alcohol. Put it all back together and worked great. The problem with the cube is it has those goofy screws with the triangle tip. I would imagine using the same trick would work for the cube though.

    It may be time to stop by your local Gamestop.

    This is also a good idea. If you have the extra $100 I would also go for this option. Or if you wait they might do another price drop when Wii is released.
