I still have mine somewhere but I don’t know if it still works. Sold all modules for it too.

Battery use on these was crazy too. on 29 Sep 2023 07:28 collapse

Crazy in what sense? Very little use or a lot of use?

They pulled a lot of energy for what they did. Quite inefficient from today’s view. on 29 Sep 2023 09:10 collapse

Got it. Thanks. on 28 Sep 2023 19:26 next collapse

What a glow up! DMG will live on forever. Also solid game choice with DK '94! on 28 Sep 2023 19:44 next collapse

Probably my favorite-looking system of all-time. on 28 Sep 2023 19:57 collapse

I still prefer the 90’s-ness of the SNES, but this was a damn-fine looking machine. on 29 Sep 2023 08:52 next collapse

Seeing that reminds me of being at my grams house during the summer 💕 on 29 Sep 2023 12:29 collapse

Omg so I wasn’t the only one who’s grandparents had an old school gameboy in their house on 29 Sep 2023 12:54 collapse

Well it wasn’t so old school then :P

But I used to play Super Mario Land all the time with my aunt when we were there :) on 29 Sep 2023 14:31 collapse

If you didn’t know, you can easily fix the blank line on the screen. If you take the cover plate off and remove the piece of foam right below the display, theres a line of solder across all the rows of pins. If you take a soldering iron and just run it along the solder line and melt it it fixes the connection. on 29 Sep 2023 15:17 next collapse

Already tried that. fixed 4 lines but I couldnt get this one to work again on 29 Sep 2023 15:25 collapse

Ahh darn, it may be possible to drop a bit of new flux on the one spot and solve it. Else the pin is fried, in that case RIPski on 29 Sep 2023 15:30 collapse

Cant see your answer on my instance because I just restored a backup. Dont really want to try doing that flux thing because I dont want to ruin the display
