  1. Yep, I don't really want to remove mine either. Shame our stickers aren't in different locations then at least scans could be stitched together to make one whole.
  2. I've just scanned Aquattack for you - PM incoming very soon.
  3. Latest list with PM confirmations of interest noted: a2dconverter (confirmed) mattyv316 (confirmed) terry266 - no response yet..... WaveRider1970 (confirmed) WaveRider1970 (confirmed) SiLic0ne t0aD (confirmed) 88mph (confirmed) mingus (confirmed) mingus (confirmed) jkadaver (confirmed) jkadaver (confirmed) So 10 kits confirmed. I'll start ordering parts next week.
  4. Congrats on finding the problem. Always a huge relief when the culprit is found 😀
  5. That is very peculiar to lose so much voltage. Could it be a faulty VDP that is somehow internally shorting after warming up?
  6. I'm sure others will be able to help better than I can, but I thought I'd at least let you know that the VCC at the VDP on two of my working (not VRAM modded) CVs was around 4.77V with known good power supplies, so your voltage reading definitely looks to be on the low side.
  7. As Ruggers said, I'd recommend a new power supply anyway, 11.6V is definitely too low. Did you see the 11.6V reading drop as the screen dimmed - that would be a 100% giveaway that it's the power supply. The drop might not be that much so you'll need to watch the multimeter carefully. I have no definite idea why it works fine with the RF plugged in but I'm sure it's not getting juice from your TV. Probably something to do with the power draw of the LM1889 video modulator and how it changes when RF is connected and disconnected. If you monitor the +12V point I mentioned above while connecting and disconnecting the RF cable you'll see how the voltage reacts.
  8. Where are you taking those voltage readings from? Are they when the unit is powered on? I would suggest hooking up the composite to your display and then continuously monitoring the +12V voltage where you soldered the red wire connects to the RF PCB. Turn on your CV and watch the 12V reading on your multimeter as your display dims. I agree with Ruggers - those voltages look on the low side. It could just be that the extra power draw from the video mod is simply too much for your power supply.
  9. Thanks for looking into it. I know it may cost more but, personally, I'd be willing to pay the difference.
  10. Thank you. Yes, this hobby does help and is a welcome distraction.
  11. Here's the updated interest list. I'll PM everyone over the weekend to confirm your continued interest. a2dconverter jkadaver mattyv316 mattyv316 crisalan44 terry266 WaveRider1970 WaveRider1970 SiLic0ne t0aD 88mph mingus mingus jkadaver jkadaver
