  1. So my 5200 has apparently given up the ghost and just refuses to turn on. I recall the last time it functioned (about a month ago was when I played it last) it took a couple of tries to get it to turn on, but eventually it worked perfectly fine and I was able to turn it off and on with ease as I switched out games. Now all of the sudden it doesn't want to turn on at all. I have had this 5200 for a few years, and it has worked great otherwise. At the moment I don't have anything to test the power supply itself. But I'm assuming it's the switchbox. When I was trying to turn it on I examined the switchbox after several attempts and noticed it smelled like burning plastic. It wasn't strong, but you could definitely smell it if you held it up to your nose. I took it apart and everything looks good, except for the part where you plug in the actual power supply. The part where you plug the console in - which was where it smelled like burning plastic the most when I examined it - seems okay. Attached are pics of the switchbox, which I have taken out of its shell to look at. As you can see, the part where you plug the power supply into (the black thing, I don't know the name of it) seems rusty and corroded all over. Would this be my problem? Could I take it off the switchboard and clean it up, or would it be best to just buy a new part? Also, what can I use to test out my power supply to make sure that's not what's causing the issue?
  2. So I fixed a couple of model 2 Sega Cd units and thought I would share for folks to keep some from the trash heap. I found 2 versions and fixed both so watch and enjoy folks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Xw_32ElbbM&t=16s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmOAriKXZZA
  3. I tried the MK-1602-1 Genesis power adapter on my Jaguar, which worked at first. My Jaguar turned on, even though it red screened, but when I kept trying different games in it to see if it would work, it started not turning on sometimes. I had to try turning it on a few times before it came on, and now it doesn't turn on at all, no matter what game is in it. What could cause that? I'll take it apart and look at it, but I wanted to ask experienced Jaguar hackers here first, what I should look for. If it's relevenant: One thing I noticed during the red screens was that when I pressed buttons on the controller, it caused interference on the tv. I was using a SNES/Genesis RF adapter. I just now thought of this seconds before posting the topic, but I checked the voltage of the power adapter, and although it says it's 10V, my multimeter is showing 13.5V! This seems WAY out of any sensible tolerance range, unless their tolerance is +/- 35% LOL! Anyway, I just found a topic saying that a good cartridge connection is required for the system to power on, so I'll try that, but like I said, it worked, then sometimes worked, now doesn't work. Edit: Great news, it was just a case of dirty cartridges!
  4. Hi, I am hoping somewhere here I might be able to gain some insight into what's going on with my Atari Jaguar. I've owned it from new and it has been boxed and stored for over ten years until now. Upon trying to fire it up I get nothing no light no nothing. I thought even if I had no cart in the slot the machine would flash the power light at me. Regardless with a game in the cart slot it still won't power up. The small amount of research I have done has lead me to check the condition of the cart port and the CI chip on the motherboard. Both appear fine but I am no expert so please refer to the images below and let me know what you think. I have just today heard that an original gen Mega Drive PSU you will power the Jag, so I intend trying that out to rule out the PSU adaptor itself. Other than that I'm a little stumped, this is a very lightly used Jag which I almost exclusively played Aliens Versus Predator on. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
