  1. Yes. I used a multi meter and did a continuity check between each of the 9 pins in the connector against the points soldered to the board and found one of the pins had an open. I cut the connector off and replaced it with https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00066HQ7S/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and it now works. I do have a few extra optical sensors I picked up on eBay in case someone thinks it could fix their issue I would gladly sell (cheap) But I only have 5 I think. Have to look.
  2. Ok so I ordered 2 of the optical sensors and it did not fix my issue. I did a search and found some schematics for the roller controller. So I broke out my multi-meter and began to test pins. used the known working sensor and compared the voltages on the IC inputs and outputs for each sensor according to the schematics. (I have a little background in electronics so I can reasonably understand the circuits.) When spinning the optical roller I did see a Hig/Low or 5v/0v signals where there should be. I noticed even on the one I replaced it was also reading fine so I don't think the sensor that i replaced is bad. I traced it down to pin 9 of the actual 9 pin connector (From the board to the connectors end). Since it is molded plastic I can not open it to see if a pin came loose or a solder joint is broken. I could not get any continuity until I cut off the end and striped the pin 9 wire. So I am ordering some db9 connectors and I am going to replace both connectors. I will update this thread as soon as I get the parts. It would be easier just to solder a cord from another unit but I dont have one...lol.

  3. Thanks for finding the part. I bought one recently for $25.00 but they did not know if it worked. The left/right doesw not work. If this fixes it then it cost me 35.00 since I am buying 2 sensors in case. I will let you all know if this fixes mine...
  4. I just found out that Jerry (oldjd) passed away on January 5th. Very sad day.... If anyone has been trying to contact him this is why.....My condolences goes out to the family....
  5. I will be sending in my fat PS2 to him to make the cover soon and it has that adapter.
  6. I just bought the PS1....I am so glad you have these now. I have bought almost all of the covers.. Looking forward to the possibility of Xbox and PS2
  7. Sorry its taken me so long/ I have the box right here and I will look at the information.
  8. This is crazy. I had been thinking of this exact idea....wonder to see someone has already made some great progress...I may be able to help. I have boxes for INT II and One along with the voice module...
  9. I got mine to day! Works great. Thank you!!!!!
  10. Wow A set of these just sold for $300.00 on ebay. I watched out of curiosity. I have a set but don't have intentions of selling them but man if they go fro that kind of price....lol http://www.ebay.com/itm/Supplemental-Overlays-Pack-for-INTV-Intellivision-Flashback-Never-Used-/381985945582?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=XAupYN1Cji67JdrfyWycZMFSlE8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc Although after looking at the bids I am suspicious of the one that won with a feedback rating of (1) But nevertheless the bid just before that looks real and was still offering 300.00. Well I am no Ebay expert so take that with a grain of salt....
  11. Please add my to this wonderful list. case for Lynx II
  12. How many would be interested in a Turbografx 16 cover? I would be willing to send mine in and loan as a template. I think the Turbografx 16 has a strong collector base. I have bought almost all of the covers so far. Soon as I finish my game room which should be an a few weeks I will post pictures to show my appreciation for all the work they have done for the community. Needs a cover.....
  13. Sorry I should have explained that. I soldered a short wire and ran it underneath then up through the board. So yeah it does look like I soldered pin 26.
  14. I finally got the mod installed. At first I was getting a solid yellow screen. I doubled check all my connections and found nothing connected wrong. I still did not work so I did a continuity check and thought I may have a short on the 5 volt line to ground. So I moved the 5 volt line to another spot on the board and tried again with no luck. I pulled the wires from the S-video and re-soldered everything and it still did not work. I figured I fried the board. One last ditch effort I removed the TIA chip and re inserted it and it Worked!!!! Thanks for the tips and the screen shots. Crossbow your FB page also helped.
