Video Game Repair/Plug n play console error
I recently got this japanese plug n play console that runs on 4 c type batteries.
I tested it on my lcd tv with the usual av connections and it worked fine. Till the battery low started blinking on my screen, so i turned off the console had it set for 10-15 mins and plugged it in on a diffrent lcd tv with the same av inputs (yellow,white,red) fresh batteries and now it showed artifacts on my screen, the kind of which you normally see on nes/famicom cartridges that you need to blow in order to fix. Now i can't use the plug n play console.
Is this a:
- Board/chip issue?
- Av cables need replacement?
- Game dev is xavix ssd
- Console was released in Japan 2003
- Runs on 4 C type battries.
- Has an option for a 6v adapter.
Hope you can help
Thank you so much!
The issue with the plug n play games is that when the voltage starts to run low, you'll get artifacts on the screen like you are describing (the same thing happens with the Pac Man plug and play games you commonly find as well)
My guess is that your batteries are either installed incorrectly, aren't making good contact, or one (or more) are actually bad. This would explain the behavior of the system. I doubt that there is anything wrong with the cables or the board.
You may want to located a 6V adapter, if only to save money on batteries.
Hope this helps!
