Ok, now for how to mod a Toshiba Visicom COM-100:
It is really simple actually, you will only need to solder (or tie together...not the best thing but only do this if you don't have
a solder iron) 3 wires! One for the video, one for the audio and one for the ground. At first when i've opened the console,
i was hesitant since everything written is in Japanese but once i saw only seven wires connected to the RF modulator, it
was much easier than to translate...lol!
There is three yellow wires which are connected to a switch, these three you can cut since it's only for channel 1 & 2
and you can also cut the wire next to the yellow indicated by a weird "N" symbol (that one is the +5V). Now that four
wires are cut, there is only three left (those that we need). Now cut those three and solder/wire them to the appropriate
output (video = yellow, audio = red and ground ....is ground! lol!). Voila! Told you guys that it was simple!
Here's the picture how to do it:
Now the next mod i'm going to do for the Toshiba Visicom is a cartridge adaptor to see how Studio II/MPT-02
cartridges look like. Will the Toshiba displays the same colors or only 2 or more colors ? We'll only know when
the cart adaptor will be done since the Visicom cart pinouts doesn't match the Studio II/MPT-02.
I think Charles McDonald posted the pinout of the Visicom cartridge, but i'll use my multimeter to check where
each pins goes where in the Visicom. It won't take too long since there is only 22-pins.
Next A/V mod, either the RCA Studio II or the Conic M-1200 coming soon. =)
