http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... TQ:US:1123" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

when i messaged her asking what was wrong this is the response i got
"it will boot and the orange LED light will turn on and the fans
will spin, but the system will shut down seconds after. i heard
rumers that it can be fixed, but i dont want to learn how to to do
it. but like i said, everything else in the bundle works fine. also
- you can buy dreamcast games from me."

i'm not buying it cause well i don't want it but if anyone wants to maybe buy it and fix it then go ahead :P
also this is not my auction :lol:

No shipping to the Netherlands, the controllers only are worth the 10 bucks :P

Should be really easy to fix, all it should need is the PSU pins pushed forward more so they make contact again.

The controller port doesn't appear to be working. If you're looking for controllers, just look on ebay for controllers. Buying a broken system from a seller who doesn't know whats the problem is a huge risk. I once bought a DS from someone who listed it as "broken" and they didnt know what the problem was, it just didnt turn on. Well it turned out that it had 2 busted screens and broken hinges. I looked back at the photos they had used for the item description and they had taken them at an angle so you wouldnt notice the damage through the glare.
