Just wondering if someone can help me.
I've just got my Lynx 2 out of storage with the intention of fitting a McWill screen and using my excellent Lynx SD card cartridge (thanks Saint).
However, when I power up the Lynx, the game runs fine (California Games starts playing the intro music, and you can press buttons to start the different games), but there is no display on the screen. The backlight is working.
I'm wondering if I should just open it up, and install the McWill screen, or if I should try and troubleshoot the original screen first.
Would appreciate any tips on troubleshooting the problem.
I'd also like to do the MOSFET and diode replacement. However, I can't find anywhere in the UK which stocks the exact replacement for the diode.
The Lynx has been very lightly used, and was purchased as part of a fire sale that Electronics Boutique in the US were running back in about 1998.
For piece of mind, I'm thinking that I should replace the power components. Does anywhere know where I might source the diode in the UK?
Any help would be much appreciated.
