Topics I've Started

Lynx 1 5V USB mod with original on/off switch intact?

Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:59 PM

Topic says it all. 


I thought to ask here first before delving into it myself. I know about the C41 trick and have tried to solder a usb cable to that capacitor. Works fine ofcourse, but I'd like to use the original buttons to switch on/off the console while only using 5V. (Ideally a mini usb port where the power socket now is would be fantastic.) 


Is this possible? 

Japanese FZ-1: Turn 110V into 230V

Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:20 AM

Hey guys,


I have my eye on a Japanese FZ-1 system. I'd be able to get it for quite a good price, but before I purchase I would like to know if it is possible to avoid an external step down convertor (I'm European) by replacing the build in 110V/60Hz to 15V AC step down transformer with one that follows the specs for my location. Something like a 30VA 230V/50-60Hz to 15V transformer? Or am I thinking to easy about this?


Anyone know of an example where someone has made this work?
