  1. Current status (20-Feb-2021): I'm sending out PMs to those who have expressed interest. I'm doing this in the order that people responded. Initial Post (mostly) (10-Feb-2018): As many of you are aware, the Microvision by Milton Bradley is notorious for something people have called "screen rot", where the LCD screen becomes dark and unusable. Unfortunately, this effect is all too common. A fix for these would hopefully bring back to life these interesting and (I think) fun handheld systems. It took a few months or so, but I was finally able to get a couple of quotes for replacement LCD screens for the Microvision. These are intended to be drop-in replacements for existing screens. There's a number of costs related to this project. Some are known, such as engineering cost and production cost, and some are unknown, such as customs and duty, and shipping parts to me. Therefore, I've come up with some maximum prices in US dollars (shipping not included): Quantity 1: $22.00 Quantity 2+: $20.50 each Quantity 4+: $19.00 each Quantity 8+: $17.50 each [initial orders will probably be in the $17-$19 range each, regardless of quantity ordered (1+). This is because I'll be able to work on a bunch of orders one after the other, which will save time. Price later might be a few dollars more to account for time spent packaging single orders. Note that the exact price is to be determined, based on actual costs that I incur for the project]. I should mention that once you've bought and received your replacement screens, they're yours to do whatever you want with them... resell them at any price you see fit, put them in systems and sell those at any price you see fit, keep them on your shelf to look at, etc. FAQ: 1. Will the new screens be susceptible to screen rot? They shouldn't be. These will be brand new displays, built to high standards. We're used to the Microvision display being very poor, but most or nearly all other small LCD displays work well for many, many years. 2. What is the operating and storage temperature of the display. Operating Range: 0C to +50C. Storage Range: -10C to +60C. 3. Are the Zebra connectors (that connect the LCD screen to the board) reusable? Yes. They tend to stick a bit when they've been connected for a long time, but they seem to be robust in their ability to connect well with repeated use. 4. Are there installation instructions? Is it easy to install? Here are some pictures of disassembly of a Microvision (re-assembly is basically the reverse, although the front and back polarizer and reflector is not required). The green pad is still used, and the contact strips are still used. It's fairly easy, although sometimes the wires and other parts like to move around a bit, so plan on 20 minutes for a full upgrade.
  2. 11-09-20 The NEW Microvision LCD display screen samples have completed final testing at the factory. Several demonstration videos have gone back and forth and everything looks good. The samples are being shipped back this week so I can evaluate them. The new LCD units were demonstrated working fine with the correct contrast(LCD voltage) control. There is a good window of the rear contrast knob rotation to compensate for battery depletion. I'll add new videos of the devices once they are checked out. 11-11-20 The samples arrived and checked out fine. I'll set up pre-orders on ebay and at the www.voiceofthemummy.com/staging website. Several games are supported here with Microvision in the list. The NEW LCD Pre-Order is listed on eBay and on the Voice of the Mummy website using PayPal. You don't have to have a paypal account to use this checkout. https://voiceofthemummy.com/staging/microvision-lcd-display/ https://www.ebay.com/itm/224090610358 International Orders. Please use the ebay item links. eBay takes care of the customs paperwork and has shipping protection for both the buyers and sellers. 11-14-20 NEW LCD install page. It will have both the standard "drop in" replacement LCD plus the backlight kit instructions. I'll add more pics and tips on installing these NEW LCDs once the xmas rush is over. 12-04-20 The backlight kits have been finalized. This will require one new zebra connector. The larger zebra connector is reused. This kit contains a NEW transmissive LCD(made for backlighting), a backlight unit and a new zebra connector. The backlight unit will have the current limiting resistor attached. There are 2 solder connection points pictured in further posts. 12-10-20 The NEW LCDs are due to arrive mid January 2021. 12-22-20 The production LCD units are being packed up for shipment. Scheduled delivery is still mid January. Once they are delivered, a small group will be checked out thoroughly. Then the orders will be filled. Before each unit is packed for shipment, each unit will undergo a quick check in the test jig. Stay tuned. 12-27-20 The backlight kits have sold out. 01-05-21 A new batch of backlit LCD kits have been ordered. These are due to arrive mid to late February 2021.These new kits can be pre-ordered on the website with paypal.

  6. Hi! I've released a new version of Paul Robson's MVEM emulator that supports fullscreen, is more front-end friendly, and has overlays and snaps for all the games. You can read about it here, and there are download links there as well for both the executable package and the source. https://www.raphkoster.com/2017/05/07/microvision-emulator-release/ Release notes: This is an updated build of Paul Robson's Microvision emulator, which came out in 2014. All I have done is add some nicer UX and a lot of artwork sourced from the Internet. The intent was to make playing with the emulator something more appealing that could be integrated with a frontend. To run the emulator from a frontend, this is the command line: mvem %rom% widthxheightx1 For example mvem "Alien Raiders.bin" 1920x1080x1 This will launch the specified game at full screen on a 1920x1080 monitor. If the last parameter isn't included, the game will launch at 800x600 in a window. Many thanks to Paul Robson and the others who did all the hard parts! BUILD 15 CHANGESMay 6th 2017 Allow passing in of screen res and full screen from the command line. Format is <width>x<height>x<fullscreen> where fullscreen = 1 for full and 0 for windowed. The Enter/Return key now toggles fullscreen. Emulator now chooses optimal size for playfield plus overlay based on the screen size. Default screen to 800x600 windowed. Add 1 pixel gap between pixels on LCD display. Lighten the LCD pixel color so it is a closer match to actual LCD black. Added overlays for all games. These are based on the American editions of the carts except for Super Blockbuster. Replaced the one by Paul Robson for Pinball. Load snaps of carts and display on the side at full screen height. Overlay key mappings on top of the snaps. Created new snaps for the two homebrew games by Paul Robson. Added linear filtering to textures for smoother images. Slide playfield over so that both always fit. There is now a knob that represents the range of motion for the paddle, rather than just the bar. Made the existing bar-shaped render of knob position have alpha transparency, so it would blend into the overlays.
  7. Here's my collection... Milton Bradley Microvision - North American items: Phaser Strike (without the "Star Trek") (missing manual): Milton Bradley Microvision - European items: I'm happy enough having one of each number; I won't be collecting from each language/country. However, missing "console" box and label for #4. Also, most of the boneyard (boxes are empty):
