BK 1474 O'Scope Testing

Posted by -^CrožBow^-, 23 October 2017 · 26 views

Picked this up about 2 weeks back for $60 with a rolling cart it sits on. But the vertical tracing didn't seem to work only horizontal. Cracked it open over the weekend and found a capacitor that had been broken off. Repaired this just to see and low and behold..I give you the following video. Time to start learning how to actually use it and have some fu...

Intellivision - 2609 - Capacitor Replacement Video Been doing a few composite AV mods on client intellivisions. Though I would video the process I go through for doing a capacitor replacement.

I've been working with DC to DC buck converters lately on a few of my classic consoles. Here is a detailed video of the process wherein I change out the 7805 voltage regulator on my SMS with a Traco Power DC/DC +5 converter.

So the other night I tackled a hardware upgrade that I had seen mentioned in a youtube video that seemed really interesting. It was a video where a another retro gamer and hardware modder was showing his latest modification using a Yamaha 3438 discreet synth chip to produce the music and sounds in place of the stock Yamaha 2612 that came with the model 1...

Lynx Model 2 - Capacitor Replacement Just did a capacitor replacement on my Atari Lynx model 2 this weekend. One of my two units was suffering from some nasty audio clipping, distortion and overall low volume. The camera was on a lower quality shooting mode and I did realize until I was done with the filming. I apologize for that but you can still make out enough to get see the overall proce...
