I never noticed

I didn't know that. I guess that explains why I spent 50$ last week at the shack. I thought LEDs were cheap if you only buy a couple.

idea

go to radio shack and buy several tubes of silicon heatsink lubricant and

Idea

if you still want to, you can go to radioshack and buy a bunch of cheap little batteries, LEDs, lightbulbs, speakers, holders, ect. and show him where the connections go and let him go trigger happy with an iron or soldering gun.

Idea

I will connect the PS1 screen wires to audio and video out and the other wires to whatever they go to. Where the PS1 screen wires are connected, I will try to connect the AV cable po...

quick question

Now would it split the data flowing to the PS1 screen with the TV, or, which might be worse off, divert the data to only the PS1 screen or the TV?

good work

excellent use of the PS1 analog control cursor mushroom. The tactile switches may need some hot glue and buttons. you may try the triggers from the NES standard controller or PS1 controller. Is it backlit or frontlit with LEDs?
