Keeping Busy (April)
Its been a funny month. So much to do, and somehow no matter how much time I put aside, so little actually gets finished. It just seems every job I started leads to another problem, or parts were not available/stuck in the post. Despite this I did manage to get some results and a few consoles were returned this month, including:
Neo Geo Pocket Colour (NGPC) Front Light Mod.
This request was to install a LCD front light in the units to allow playback in the dark. This worked fine, but for the best result I bonded the front light unit to the screen with a UV reactive glue. The sharpness of the screen is reduced as its showing through another layer now.
Amiga CD32 Recap
Just a regular request for a CD32 recap. The console is much more stable now with new caps.
Terraonion SSDS3 RGB and Audio bypass mods
This was a new one to me. A customer had an early version SSDS3 unit. Apparently these units can be improved in the Audio and Video output quality with the installation of these two kits. One bypasses and replaces the stereo audio amp, the other replaces the video encoder. Some parts needed removing with hot air.
RGB mod on PC Engine Core Grafx
Another PC engine for an RGB mod. I’ve started making my own RGB scart cables for these mods. This allows me more control over stock but takes more time to do. Anyway great results from this unit now.
So that’s about it this month. I did get a little time to look at a couple of my own projects, but they can wait for their own post later.
