Do you pack the Cube away every time you're finished playing with it or do you have it set up all the time ?
The reason I ask this is that back in the N64 days I used to pack my console away after every session and after months of folding up the wires one of the cables eventually broke inside.
I discovered this by setting the machine up in the normal way and then playing about with the leads to see if anything happened - go along each lead with your hands and bend the cables every two to three inches.
If you do find that folding a cable at a particular point restores the telly picture then you have found a break - this should be easy to fix by cutting off the break and re-joining the wires ( or better still - buy a new lead )
If you don't have any success then the Cube is probably knackered - you should be able to claim a replacement through your house insurance though
Good luck !

im lucky my sis is 18 so more carful than me!
also my gamecube lives in a unit very close to the floor, so if any idiot pulls it off it only has about 1 inch to fall

Get yourself a mobile phone with vibrate function, sellotape it to the wavebird and then just keep calling the phone.

Well, although I can't offer any suggestions other than to try it with a new RF/AV cable, I can understand the fear that such a quality device may be broken.

Only this afternoon I was playing Mario Party 4, and for the second time since I bought the game, it crashed, displaying the message "Please switch off the GameCube and refer to the instruction manual for further instructions".

I just pressed reset and continued my game.

When my bro plays on my cube I put pillows round it, he is prone to spinning around on my swivel chair, whilst holding my controller. The last time he did it I only just caught the cube before it dropped.

on a more serious note, get your little bro or sis, or even your mum and dad, take them into a room, sit them down and lock the door, then interogate them until they confess that they spilt that cup of tea in the cooling fan ! It's most likely that something like this has happened, someone was near the cube, dropped summit on it, thought it was better not to tell you, and so now you have to make them confess. it's sad but probably true :(
