  1. No need to say sorry these kits are great! I think they are the only decent option for someone looking to build an analog vectrex controller. I like the fact they can be customized. For those people like me that cant make a good looking case..i think the 3d printed cases are a great option if people feel comfortable with making minor changes here and there.
  2. I also received a prototype 'vecjoy' enclosure from Richard. There were a few modifications I had to make. On my kit, the header pins for connecting both boards together needed to be removed. Unlike the last example, my header pins were vertical from the board and not mounted at a 90 degree angle providing the ability to plug the cable in to the side of the board. I removed the pins and wired the boards directly. I also did not use the LED space/holder because they were too high so much so it would not allow the switches to protrude out of the box enough to access them. Other then that - it was pretty easy to install. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bcb9kjWU3VkUO8jnI4yylbr4sPcxRMGDZg/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/17GnQVLphywFFMm6mRs63YdYG5UkdJBTglg/view?usp=sharing
  3. Just successfully removed it. I didn't realize the plastic mounting bracket was seperate from the front plastics of the vectrex. Good thing the service manual was avaliable online. The vectrex community is awesome for archieving this stuff! Now I just have to figure out if a Hong Kong made logic board will work ok in a Tawian made vectrex. They appear to be different in that tawian boards have all the ICs soldered on when HK made ones have some sockets. Anyone confirm if the boards are interchangeable?
  4. Ah - I think I understand what I missed. It sounds like there is a mounting bracket with 2 screws that need to be removed. I found mention of it in the service manual I just found. Logic Board Removal 1. Remove all cable connectors from the top of the board (3). 2. Unsolder ground jumper between the logic board and power board at the logic board (left side). 3. Unsolder and remove the 3 power leads at the power board, EP1 04,105 and 106. Unsolder 2 of these leads (red) plus 2 from the power transformer on the back of the on/off switch. 4. Remove the logic board mounting frame which includes the speaker, power transformer and reset button by removing retaining screws that hold the frame to the front cover. There are two screws located just above the power transformer bracket that must be removed also. 5. Remove the logic board mounting frame. 6. Unsolder the leads on the reset button. 7. Remove the retaining hardware on the front of the volume control, on/off switch. 8. Remove 4 small Phillips head screws on the top of the logic board that hold the board to the frame. One of the screws holds the plastic game cartridge guide to the logic board. Remove the guide. 9. Remove the logiC board.
  5. Thanks this is helpful. I think this confirms i did everything. I will look again.
  6. Can anyone provide me the proper way of disassembling a vectrex? I need to pull the logic board out of one. I pulled all the cables and removed the board screws. The board wont come out because something is holding on to it toward the front. I removed the power/vol knob. Cant tell what its holding on to and i dont want to force it. Cartridge port? Do i have to remove a nut on the pot or reset button? I might have to pull the monitor chassis out of another one. Any tips on removing that? Where are the vectrex repair youtubers? I promise ill subscribe to your channel for life if you document the complete break down! Thanks!
  7. what about being able to mod the vectrex so video output will work with a vector arcade monitor?
  8. Quick question - what is the signficant difference between this ulitmate cart and the atarimax IDE-II?
  9. I just recieved my flashrom 99 in the mail. I was having some issues determinating what runs on it and what doesn't so this thread was very helpful. Will the collection of bins be updated soon? I see the last modified date was back in july. Thanks!
  10. Greetings, I think it might be time for me to hand off my moderator duties. I hope everyone had some fun last season, I'm sorry I couldn't really keep up - life always seems to get in the way from my hobbies! Anyway, let me know if you are interested in starting up Season 10 and I'll hand it off to you! Thanks for participating! -Coleco
