I have a light sixer and it won't turn on. The voltage regulator got fried. I'm just curious how to fix this on the pcb. It got burnt after I used a crappy soldering iron trying to attach an led. Yes, if there is any way to remedy this let me know. The screen flashes as soon as I put power to the wall after that nothing. It's been a learning experience folks.
I'm continuing this from my latest blog post, Two Fries and a Hamburger, so that "All may benefit from discussion". After installing a composite mod on my Atari, the voltage regulator failed and took a couple of RIOTs with it. Another user suggested I just replace the VR, that it would work better because it's new. Is this a good idea? And do the new regulators fit the old cage heat sinks?
Hey yo! So, I did a video mod. It worked well for a bit then all the colors went very dark. No adjustments would work. I was sent a replacement mod and a sixer refresh kit. I replaced the video mod possibly it was a bad pcb but no change. I then started to do the refresh. I replaced the 2200 uf capacitor and no change in color. I then replaced the chicklets, C103 and C104 and the voltage regulator, A101...... Now I get no video at all and the voltage regulator is burning hot! Also the original power supply started clicking but it stopped now. I think it was over heating as well...... any ideas my friends??? Im getting ready to give this thing up!
