  4. Please help, I am looking for someone that does soldering repairs, I sent out my neo geo aes to have a unibios installed and it came back non-functional as the person lifted a few pads off. Is there anyone else that offers a soldering service to do some jumpers from the chip to the trace? Thank you
  5. Hello VGS ! I've had a Dreamcast for about two years now and it has started having a few problems lately. First, every time I start the console, it asks me what is the time. I know it is possible to fix this issue by changing the battery inside the console, but I have absolutely zero experience welding. Also, some games are freezing up, some won't boot up and I tell you, my discs are in pristine condition. I guess this would be because of the laser lens, which is not working properly anymore. I would gladly take your advices and even your services if someone can check up my Dreamcast console and fix everything that needs to be repaired. I do want to repair my console instead of buying a new one. I did not touch the laser lens yet: can you clean it without damaging it ? Thanks, guys ! Michel
  6. Hi everyone, I've dabbled with repairing game boards and have had moderate success. I was wondering what kind of equipment I should be using to diagnose issues? I have two oscilloscopes (both an analog and digital one), a logic probe, a bench variable power supply, a reliable fixed 5, 12, and -5V supply, good soldering equipment, monitor discharge tools (both a hv probe and screwdriver with ground), a good eprom burner, and a test pattern generator. I guess what I'm looking for is recommendations for other useful tools that I already don't have. For example, does anyone have a recommendation for a good 74/4000 series chip tester?
