Because you don't check the news section? Or was that a rhetorical question? Image

Re: Overclocking your GBA

Tell us the symptoms. Is the screen only white for a long time, and then finally the gameboy logo shows up? Or does it just start with regular speed? Does it even turn on at all? What gameboy are you using?

Like that? It was kinda a failure with so few people, but with more people it might work here...

Re: Power Question

Also I happen to know offhand that a 7805 usually needs at least 7V to run (it varies) . I don't mean to start a fight, but I've never had one that needed more than 6.5v :| I have like 30 of them and tested them all when I was just learning. They're all pretty much the radio shack ones. 5.9v - 6.5v...

Re: Power Question

Hailraizer is right, maybe it's nearing the end of it's lifetime and there is the possibility that it can't handle the load. Plus the 7805 isn't 100% efficient, so that's going to mess up your figures.

Re: Backlit game boy color?

Really, it's because of the way that nintendo made the color screen able to be seen without having a backlight in the first place. Bibin could explain it better for you. My knowledge is really limited on the subject. All I know is that I frontlit it and it works. :D

Re: Zenith screen warning.

Was it a zenith screen? Or was in another recase like Verge? My zenith screens don't have it but my verge screen does. :?

The stamped heatsink. If yours looks like that then this could be interesting :lol: If it doesn't have those depressions, then it's a normal one.

Let me ask you though, what did the heatsink look like? Was it like every other n64? Or did the top one with the fins go directly to the main processors?

Re: Nintendo 64 Motherboard Revisions/Serials Info Request

Yeah, I had one of those too. Ninty is just a bunch of cheap bastards and at the end of the n64's lifetime, they just threw together any remaining parts/boards/crap they had :lol:
