Alright, let's troubleshoot. Can you describe in a bit more detail how you have this currently wired up? As best as I can tell, you have stated that you have an LED modded PSOne screen and an SNES mini, correct? I'm also assuming that you are putting around 7.4v to the PSOne screen, and taking 5v from one of its 7805's to power the SNES. Is this correct?
A couple of quick things to check - make sure ground is connected between your screen, system, and batteries. Also, I know this sounds simplistic but make sure all your wires are securely attached. You might have a cold solder joint.
I do have an led modded psone screen and a snes mini, i am using 6 AA batteries to power everything and i was taking 5v from one of the 7805s to power the snes.
Grounds are all connected together, all the wires are securely attatched.
I have power (tested with my multimeter) coming from the power switch and into the screen. But no power coming from the 7805 regulators. Have i blown a fuse or something? is the screen fried?
UPDATE: i removed the fuse (ps1) as instructed in the book (in case of emergencies), and now the 7805s are putting out power, yet the leds will not light (blown?). also if i power the snes directly and hook up through av adapter it displays a blank brown screen and no sound, i must have hooked up the adapter incorrectly or loosely or something right?
2ND UPDATE: i noticed that number 1 and 2 on the 12 av spots for the av adapter had come loose, in fact i think i lost the rings to solder them to, any suggestions?? so i discovered the led's were in fact blown (bought new ones and they work), so while unscrewing the lcd screen to swap the leds i (like a nimrod) knocked of 3 of the little surface mount capacitor things... not good....
two are labeled 102 one i cant read and they came from slots rt58, rt57, and rt56 they are located above where the screen plugs into the board, i don't know where they need to go... here are pics...
i feel like a retard...
am i just sol here?
