    Can I use this Samsung tablet battery

    Question Ps2 won't boot after wiring up VGA

    i have no knowledge of the ps2 so i’m probably not the best to answer but i can say for sure that your soldering could be a part of the issue. the joints are really big and look really cold(you can tell by the lack of shine). unless you cleaned the capacitors that you dropped solder on already...

    Question Multiple custom regulator questions

    Discussion Inside an AliExpress Wii Portable

    take this with a grain of salt because i’m not too well versed in digital electronics, but given that the board has a multiplexer capable of handling displayport it should be able to carry vga or composite. i’m not too sure about hdmi tho edit: btw is there a data sheet for that? i couldn’t...
