Miracle Piano

I was wondering, does any of the supporting consoles (or the gamecardridges for it) check if the miracle piano is actually there ? Or can any midi keyboard be connected to play the miracle piano games? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracle_Piano_Teaching_System" onclick="window.open(this.href);return...

Re: I'd like to start a portable - and hopefully complete it...

It's very easy. Requirements: - The ability to match a drawing to youre NES board ;) (so you can identfy the correct chip) - Its also handy to be able to count atleast to 4 (so you can clip the correct pin) - Being able to clip a piece of metal (so that you have disconnected pin4) - Optionally you s...

Re: PS2 Diskdrive replacement(or just cablerepairment)its fixed!

Fixed it, The diskdrive could be replaced to make it look brandnew, but its fully functional with the old setup. The cable from the middleplate to the reset/ejectbutton was damaged on 2 points, it was screwed in between the case, so it was broken there. Also the previous owner thought it would be ha...

Re: PS2 Diskdrive replacement(maybe more then just that help me)

So, the previous owner attempted to "fix it". The case is damaged badly. The system didn't reacted when i put the powercord in and switched it on. So i opened the case, tested the (zekering ...the part that breaks before you damage the board) its still fine. the board gives an output voltage of 036V...

PS2 Diskdrive replacement(or just cablerepairment)its fixed!

Hi, I have absolutely no idea about a PS2, but i might be able to get one (cheap). This is what i've heard about it, it was playing, his brother yanked the cable and the ps2 crashed to the floor, now the diskdrive doesn't open, and "the ps2 is not working". Could it be as simple as just replacing th...

Re: b_w_NES

Figured out why the screen looked faded out, and why it stopped working after a few attempts. Rechargable AA batteries provide only 1.2V while i expected 1.5V so that caused the problem. Bought a new battery and the project works just perfect! (6 batteries total now) I'll be making the fimo casing n...

Re: could someone confirm my ps1screen pinout?

If you are having picture issues, check the ribbon cable connection, that usually helps. Make sure the screen is getting enough power too. power is Volts or Amps? As for pinouts, try these threads: Screen FAQ / useful info Thanks, i found thisone lastnight and i figured my audio isn't wired correct...
