I forgot one thing

The video out will tie all together with the bottom 33ohm and 220ohm

You might try to draw it out.

Oh I got it.... you need a transistor 2n4401 2. 220ohm resistor's 1. 33ohm resistor's I don't have a pic so I will try to explain...I hope it makes sence On a little PC board(from bottom to top)(resistor'splaced left to right) 220ohm on bottom...leave a space, then a 33ohm...place your transistor on...

If I understand...for the video mod the only parts you need...if it's the PS1 video screen is 3 led's and a 10ohm resistor
LED's is a digikey part#CMD204UWC-ND
10 ohm resistor Radio Shack #271-1101

I'm not sure what you mean by alternate route

In Ben's defence...a lot of instruction ...

I kinda figured...but the glop top off the Super Joy did the same thing.

I if I understood ben's book right the grey things on the control board are a cheesy type of resistor.

Thanks

So in another forum I found a post stating that the hipgear sold from canada required more than 6v to power...so be...
