CRT TV problems

Zenith screen help?

I tested my zenith screen before taking it apart to make sure it's working, and I tried taking it apart and rewiring it but I shorted out the 7.5 v line with GND. I fixed it, but now I get this weird flicker. Everything still works, It's just that it keeps on flickering. If I wire my yobo to it, I c...

You'll get right around 5-6 hours of power out of 2500 mAh.

Awesome, thanks Metallica Man. :D

Re: Issue with my snes

Try cleaning the cartridges with a little bit of rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. If some games don't work but not others this could be the case.

Re: Portable Nes Battery

Depends on what is in the portable. A NOAC and a small screen (like the ones on Dealextreme) combined with a small audio amp (like an LM386) will draw around 300 mAh total, so that battery pack will provide about 8 hours of power. If something more power hungry is being used, like an original NES a...

Re: Portable Nes Battery

Metallica Man X wrote:Protection/charge circuit and all eh? Good stuff! 7.4v is more than enough to power a NES portable...and at 2500 mAh, you'll get plenty of play time to boot :)
