GBA SP inside Original Gameboy Case, volume wheel help!!

Post by Modgyver » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:44 pm

I'm working on this mod, I'm aware it has been done before, only problem would be the volume, the sp MOBO has a slider volume mech on side, and the original gameboy has a wheel volume on side, does anyone know how to do this? any pic diagram would be highly appreciated, thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.. (((I HAVE NOW SOLVED THIS))) LOOK COMENT'S BELOW...

sorry guys, of course I will share, thats why I posted that i had come up with a solution,so that who ever needs it they could ask. I actually "GIVE" more on forums than take, but you guys are totally right, I had asked a youtube user on how to do this but he never replied, I know the feeling,I will share my notes since the Gameboy SP is such a popular modding target.. will ad pictures in a little while.

After tinkering for a while here is the solution I found on extending the volume slide on GameBoy SP and replacing it with a thumb wheel potentiometer... it is simple first desolder the aluminum shield on the SP volume slide, it has 6 soldier spots and they are all number 1 thru 6. after you remove the shield just extend/match 1 thru 4 to the numbers on the volume thumb wheel as I have number in the picture, I have crossed out and wrote "NONE" to the pins that don't need to be extended, so just soldier 4 wires total 30 Gauge.. hope this helps someone.. Enjoy!!
