Re: SERIOUS ISSUE - Extending Cart Connector

good rule of thumb is to keep all wires as short as reasonably possible to prevent interference and signal degradation. in my case i keep it short because of the utter lack of room! http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/5282/dsc05213.jpg thats the 80 conductor ribbon cable, works AWESOME, will be using it...

Re: SERIOUS ISSUE - Extending Cart Connector

Okay, so I shortened the same exact wires by about 3 inches, re-soldered to the game and to my surprise it was glitch-free! I'm not in the clear yet though. Just finished re-attaching the cart connector and am currently testing that way. Only about 5 minutes into it so far, keeping my fingers cross...

Re: SERIOUS ISSUE - Extending Cart Connector

8"? Thats very long. For portables mine rarely exceed 3". Yeah, it IS a bit long, but there's not much I can do about it unfortunately. I might be able to get it down around 5" but it'll be difficult. The casing requires that I twist the connector 90 degrees one direction, then 90 degrees another. ...

Re: SERIOUS ISSUE - Extending Cart Connector

Yeah, it's definitely something to do with the wires, but WHAT I have yet to nail down. First I was using about 8" of your standard IDE ribbon cable to do the job and I noticed glitching very early. (Within the first 3 minutes or so). Then I changed the wires to a solid copper speaker wires (not TOO...

SERIOUS ISSUE - Extending Cart Connector

Okay, I'm noticing a trend. So far I've run into the same problem FOUR times now on different occasions, different projects and different consoles. This seems to be a serious issue and something to consider/look into, probably sticky-worthy if we're able to confirm it even. ...Either that or I have ...

WOW! Color me amazed, this is an incredible job here! Slicing the board up and rewiring that many connections is truly an impressive feat. The case is beautifully constructed too! Nice work!

Re: desoldering the cartridge connector

Hi. I'm trying to remove the cartridge connector from an SNES mini motherboard, but I'm running into some problems. I removed as much solder as I could from the pins on the bottom of the board using a solder sucker. When I try to remove the connector from the board, the pins are staying connected t...

Maybe a toastendo? :wink:

Yep, a couple of things. Making a Super Nintoaster (same idea as Nintoaster, but SNES guts instead of NES), and documenting the whole process on video for YouTube. Other than that, I can't say much. ;)

I nearly barfed at the whole avatar thing. It's a freakin' 360, dammit! If I wanted to watch some little overly happy turd dance around my dashboard like a clown on Prozac (and I don't), I'd dust off the Wii.

Other than that I suppose it's alright.

I don't know if this is exactly what you had in mind, but I built something like that a while back using two original NES connectors and a game genie connector. Makes the system work more like a "top-loader" and installs just like the regular replacement connectors. Check it out: http://www.stupidfi...
