Is there much of a market for Nuon games?  I came across a copy of Ballistic the other day and grabbed it as I never seen something like that before at retail.  I was more curious just to see what it would look like than anything and of course no player for it.


Yes and no. No in that not many people are interested, but yes in that the thing sold so poorly, interest is just high enough and quantity is limited enough to where the games are getting stupid expensive. Either that or some of the Nuon collectards are hoarding a lot of it, which is something I also wouldn't doubt.

Brand new to the Nuon. I had never heard of it until I posted a pic of a free HD CRT TV on a CRT collector's facebook group last week (to which I'm also fairly new). In that picture, on top of the TV the guy had a Toshiba Nuon SD-2300, and someone responded back saying they had the same TV and the same Nuon. I was thinking, "What's a Nuon? Looks like a DVD player to me." I looked it up and learned a little about its history, and on a whim I messaged the guy back asking if he was selling. He said, "No, but you can have it for free." He ended up giving me the TV and the Nuon along with a bunch of DVDs (season 1 Flintstones, Brady Bunch, Scooby Doo, etc).

 

TL;DR...

I have a working system but no remote, controller, or games. Is there anything I can do to experience a little of what this thing has to offer on the cheap? Please reply back or PM me with suggestions?

I've got Ballistic, pretty sure it's the cheapest of those Nuon games if you check ebay you'll see what I mean.

Yep, this is the best way to go for a cheap, real release. It was a pack-in with the Samsung units which is why it's so common compared to other games.

The cheapest way to get the controller is to build it yourself. You can get the PCB here: http://atariage.com/...lers-are-ready/for $50 plus the cost of other parts.

I'm sure if you really wanted to you could get an easy $30 for that.  :D

 

I like Ballistic.  A simple game, I think it was on the Playstation 1 or 2, but a lot of fun.

 

No image on screen, can't eject disc! If I hit open just says opens and tray doesn't move.

 

Hmmm... which model did you say you have again?

I was thinking of $20 for it, it's not perfect, the cover art has some humidity ripple to it, but the disc is minimally scuffed.

 

Ballistic is on basically everything including the GB Color.

Samsung N501

 

So there is a trick I found as one possibility

 

Use the CD player from a Samsung M105 or M104

There is one on ebay right now.

I would think it was trying to read the disc, I would still get something on the screen.   I can hear the disc spin when turning on, maybe it's not showing anything because it's failing at disc detect.    Nothing on eBay US, shipping a M104/5 would coast more than another Nuon.    According to the thread the DVD-S321 should be compatible, no full units on eBay but there is a laser replacement for $25.   I guess to test if it's really just stuck on disc detect, I could open up the unit and manually remove the disc.    In theory if no disc is is detected and tray will then open and close, that would make it more likely a laser replacement would work.    Here in the states I could just try just try my luck buying random old samsung DVD players at thrift stores.

removing the disc and then removing the drive didn't help, still just saying loading!
