Bought a broken Turbo Grafx 16

Been wanting a turbo for such a long time, and prices of them just keep climbing. So i took a chance. Found a broken one on ebay , with a controller and Bonks adventure. Guy claimed he tried everything but couldnt get it to work. Didnt know if the game was bad or the console. Well I won the auction at 100 bucks.

Got it today, booted it up. White Screen. Removed the game, wiped some diluted alcohol on the game . Bam. works.

Man i love people who dont know how to test things :) Currently taking it all apart for a deep cleaning and an S-video mod.


Ever Drive has been ordered! Cuz yanno, turbo games are just SOO cheap!

    Bought one of these recently and it works well for basic composite. Sounds like you want to go S-Video though.

    I can actually 3d print those :) someone has it up now on thingiverse to print. I might make one for the time being.

    They sell a Chinese Bootleg AV Booster, that Goes out to RGB / Component / And Svideo (Those signals need alot of boosting so it goes through a board with some caps and resistors on it) I might order one because they apparantly get good reviews.


    Only problem is they are like 20 bucks... shipped from hong kong. Long wait, and, sorry I don't know how i feel about getting packages from hong kong at the moment. Probably safe if i clean it and dispose the packaging ASAP
