Hopefully the fan is just dusty and got cracked or damaged in any way. Have to watch some Q disassembly vids to see of its the same fan as the regular GameCube, I'm sure we got a ton of extras if need be.
That's a good point. Hopefully it's just the same one, or at last the same fan power connector.
Heck, we don't even need the same power connector...as long as we can find a fan with the same ratings and of similar size, I'm sure we can rig up anything in there XD

The Benheck Experience MGC 2013 Event Space is a go! We will be in a new area this year, in our own space, across from the Arcade Museums in a cannibalized hotel room. There is about 8 or so other events like this, one selling Pinball Parts and Hyperkin's Retron 4 will be nearby too, among other things (too many to quickly jot down and remember lol).

I'll post more info and stipulations in the facebook group.

Yep, you'll be very close to the Nippon Import Group room which is where the Q will be. ;) The Midwest Light Gun Association will be in the same hall too, as well as the MGC Fight Club, the NES devs will be down there, etc., etc. If you remember where the museum wing was last year, you're basically down the other hall across from that wing. I believe there are 9 rooms in all down that wing that will each hold something.

Anyway...

The Panasonic Q actually uses a normal Phillips screw driver. I would be a little surprised if it was just dusty considering the amount of use it gets, but stranger things have certainly happened. :) Sigh... I want to say that I opened it when I first had it shipped from Japan because I heard something rattling in it. I want to say it was actually a loose screw that I couldn't find a spot for, but it could have been a small piece of plastic too. Its been so long and the unit worked absolutely fine that I never worried about it too much until it black screened at the MGC. In any case, if you guys can take a look at it, great! If you guys can repair it, even better!

Thank you!

I don't have access to a color printer anymore, nor do I have any more labels. Here's the file though:

And I used these labels:

And whoever takes this, keep the ammeter pic for mine.

Cross-posting from Facebook, because that's what we've become. :roll:

So I think we've got me, triton, Metallica Man X +1, eagle5953, Gabe too it looks like? Everyone let me know for sure, it's coming right up. 7 people? I can let everyone know what to expect money-wise once we confirm. I'm not as organized as Brian.
