Re: LED Game Cartridge

Right - so it lowers the current (Amps) too? And I wouldn't use wire that thick. It will increase the resistance I believe. Though, you can STILL use it - just a reccomendation is all :mrgreen: Only lowers that amperage, also having a thick wire decreases the resistance, not that it matters, the cu...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

you could trace those pins back to the first component they connect to and solder your wire to that. because that would be the same as soldering directly to the correct pin, as long as theres no components between your wire and the pin it'll work fine. your right, soldering directly to the pins won...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

Good point about the internal battery.. I'm almost sure that that battery would not be connected to the power rail that get's power from the gameboy, because if it was, each time you put in your game cart the memory chip would get too much voltage and fry itself. but I haven't actually opened up a ...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

well think about it, the gameboy game cartridge only get's power (given from the gameboy) when it's plugged in. so if you wire the led to the game cartridge, what do you think will happen? Lol, oh yeah good point! :lol: The only reason I wasn't sure was because I know there is a small battery in th...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

Pics are still showing big for me :? ah well, doesn't bother me. If it fit's, great, otherwise try something else. any wire should do lol, at least with the wire you have you'll be able to get it working, and then if it doesn't close, you'll get some more practice removing it, and redoing it with t...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

Are you sure you changed the size of the pics? they still look the same to me lol edit: I'm thinking you might have a hard time using that wire and getting it to all fit back into the closed cartridge. you only need thick wire like that if your putting lot's of current/voltage through it. for an LE...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

Now that was a good description! I really should have looked at those links I gave you :wink: and I did comment about your mega post lol, look at the bottom of my reply :D .. one thing though, you should probably make your pics smaller, or just post a thumbnail of the pic. You'll probably get told ...

Re: Need help

The point is you don't need the digital port. But I wouldn't cut it off yet, as I have heard doing so causes some issue, or you need to rewire a trace or something. Like I said, I don't have a complete understanding of ground either; I just know it completes circuits. I've cut it off and it worked ...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

It drops the Voltage only Your wrong. I just did some tests with a battery, and having a resistor mainly only drops the current (Amperage) 2.4Amp - 8.09V battery (Natural) 0.1uA (0.01mA or 0.001A) - 8.09V (with 4.6k resistor) 0.0A - 7.3V (with 500k resistor) so having the resistor drops only the cu...

Re: Portable Travel

Lol, to be honest I think this is fair. Only because if you are about to get on a plane and you are holding a piece of equipment that is obviously tampered with and inside is a bunch of wires connected to various shifty looking components, it's gonna be an issue :lol: Particularly on American airlin...

Re: Need help

I think any wire will do. Yes, any wire will do, and it doesn't matter what the wire is like as long as it is metal and relatively think I'd say like at least 0.5cm thick. thank's this is the first time ive fidled with electronics so yeah Hey :) I'm about to fidle with electronics for the first tim...

Re: LED Game Cartridge

Gaara! Youtube! :mrgreen: HERE the resister is used to drop the voltage/current so you don't blow up your LED.. INFORMATION! Hope that helps Thank you very much Lucid, the most helpful comment I have ever read perhaps :) My only real question now is, do I attach the positive side to the power and t...

Re: Modded Gameboy Color, not much special....

Hey I'm sorry about bringing back a dead topic.. (Dont kill me... eep). But I wanted to know, is the back, black rubber? or is something else the grip you were referring to? If so where did you get it? Id like to put this on my gbc, it looks pretty sweet! Also, that is a standard color silver for th...
