Finished fixing my old Sega Game Gear.
Information and photos in the project page, link here:
Working on fixing the sound and screen problems on my Game Gears. All got the same capacitor issues.
Easy fix with a kit from ebay.
started by removing the old caps on the sound board. They’ve even started to swell. the ones on the mainboard are looking very bad, with leaking fluid around the plastic cap holders.
I’ve Re-uploaded and updated my article about Pier Solar for the Megadrive/Genesis.
Fantastic game, well worth checking out.
I’m in the process of slowly moving my collection over from 1 house to another.
This gives me a good opportunity to photo some of the rare or interesting games and consoles in my collection.
Like this copy of Shining Force CD for the Mega CD, and Keio’s Flying Squadron.
Both are fantastic games and command high prices on eBay atm. I found both at local markets for a few £. not bad at all.
Also take a look at this 10th Anniversary edition of Sonic Adventure 2.
The package contains a music CD featuring sound tracks from Sonic titles from 1991-2001, a golden coin and an artwork booklet.
This isn’t a very rare item, but something most collectors will want in their collection.
I’ll post more as I dig them out.
Thanks to the people on the Jammaplus forum for the advice in getting the Netdimm to boot.
I was having problems making a solid connection and as it turned out I needed to lower the speed of the computer LAN adapter to 10/100.
In other news I have uploaded a few of my old articles and projects to the site. Find them in the sections above.
