Is there a way to fix my gamecube error?

Text:

For the past year whenever I turn on my nintendo gamecube it comes up with the error:
 
"An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions fix"
 
Now, the only thing I can find online about this at all is the pdf for the Instruction manual which tells me to just call nintendo support. I did that a long time ago and they told me to send it in. I do not want to spend that kind of money, especially now that it is years outdated. Does anybody have any idea what the issue is? I love learning about electronics. Is it a motherboard issue? The disc spins and it is not game specific. The same message pops up even if there is no game. So far everybody online has been completely useless. I could easily drop a small amount of money and get another one these days, but then I would learn nothing about the system. I am doing this as a learning experience as to what makes electronics run, so do not give me bullshit about how I could easily just go buy anotherrun.
