  1. If you want one of the ps2hdmi adapters pop me a PM I’ll do it cheaper than amazon
  2. A short can generally be sorted with no issue. Unless something’s been knocked I can vouch for Pete’s work, his quality is 100% so won’t be his original install. Could also be as simple as the board’s gone bad, it happens, usually dry solder joints which are uneconomical to repair. va09 & va13 boards are prone to it from my personal experience. The power light on a switchless mod is irrelevant to the motherboard, it’s not even connected to it and would do the exact same behaviour if you only connected it to a 5V supply and no Saturn using a trigger for what would be the reset button. Send it to Das to check continuity etc.
  3. Cheers @Goemon Sounds like a potential short to me. A similar thing can happen if the ground on the switchless is on a bad point or if it’s generally a poor install. I’d start by taking the 5v off the switchless pic chip (point 1) to rule that out first.
  4. Likewise Thanks @Down by Law
  5. Only way of telling is opening whipping the lid off to be honest. I was once sent one to repair and only when taking the case off it became apparent it was a clone. Even had me fooled the box was a perfect replica and the shell looked mint
  6. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183889660331 The NTSC JP versions went for £10.50 delivered too recently. The recent remakes have killed the price of the ps1 releases from the looks of it (unless they’re sealed of course)
  7. Me I have some Jap consoles, unboxed, boxed, pop me a PM
  8. This issue was actually pretty common back in the day (I feel old) especially with SE Version on older motherboards. Other solutions used to be to inject specific drivers into the process or run setup.exe with specific tags that prevented it from attempting driver installation via PnP and left you to do it all manually once the process was finished. Since ME/XP onwards this became a thing of the past luckily. Pop me the motherboard model and I'll have a look.
  9. Don’t bother pot tweaking just replace the laser. If you’re not comfortable doing it I’ll do it cheap Another thing to try is to turn on diagnostic mode. It ever slightly increases the voltage so if that works, replacement laser time.
  10. Just doing early research . I'm more curious to find out what's the way forward, does the GDEMU for example use wireless to connect the system to the net for games? You mentioned the firmware can't be updated on clones so assuming that's because there's no wireless?


    Do you have prebuilt systems and what sort of prices? Or do you have some sort of site with it all listed on :)

  11. Thanks @Pavey Hit me up over pm @Lorfarius, sure we can sort something out. I have both DC's and GDEMU's in stock. Despite all the scare mongering clones seem to operate perfectly well. They likely won't allow Firmware updates but the firmware is pretty much spot on as it is imo.
  12. If there’s an option in the bios to reset configuration data do that. Also check in the bios for plug and play OS and enable that. Failing that. Bios update.
  13. Some very old boards used to have strange issues when running in ‘turbo’ mode so if it’s something like a dx2 try running it standard. (Overnight lol)
  14. @Qazimod - We can’t have that. Send me your ps2 and I’ll repair it for free
  15. I'm super stoked for this. Interestingly Amazon Japan(themselves not a reseller) actually have a bundle for all 3 region consoles together, including geeky t-shirts. https://www.amazon.co.jp/コナミデジタルエンタテインメント-PCエンジン-mini/dp/B07V8BDZV7/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_ja_JP=カタカナ&keywords=pc%2Bengine&qid=1565362647&s=gateway&sr=8-1&th=1
