    Worklog Wii in Gamecube

    I am working on a 6 layer trim based on Nold's Miicro. I finished the trim, tested the resistances and everything seems good to go, but when I have 5V connected to AV it won't turn on. When the 5V is disconnected (white wire shown below) it turns on, evidenced by the CPU heating up. I have tried...

    Question U10 relocation and power supply regulation

    Hi! I have tried for a few days now to get my wii to work after being trimmed. Stupid as I was, I trimmed it before moving U10, so I don't know if that is the problem or not. I managed to desolder it losing only one leg, and that leg being one of the ground legs (the ones on the side with 3...
  3. Question Short to ground on 1.8 V line

    Story time: I trimmed the board, relocated U10, and connected voltages to the board from the PMS. The board booted, to my delight. But then, disaster struck. I was considering removing the LDO to save some room in my case, and so I was probing with my multimeter to find where the 1.8 V output...

    Question Can I use a gamecube power management board for a wii portable? Will that ruin anything?

    I don't know which power distribution boards to use for a portable wii. Will one from a gamecube work? If not what are some good PMS boards to use?

    Question Voltage Regulation

    I am redesigning a mini-arcade machine, and I would like to make it rechargeable. It requires 4.5v of electricity. I was going to use a pth08080wah regulator, but I was thinking: would I be able to just use a rechargeable 9v battery and a simple 2-resistor voltage divider instead?
  6. Question Wii Voltage tolerance

    Hi, before trimming my console, I wanted to make sure my custom regulators are working fine. These are my readings from the four regulators (PTH08080WAH): size of resistor used - output voltage reading from multimeter 82k - 0,995 V 33k -...
  7. Worklog First Wii Project

    I've been reading a lot of stuff on the site and lurking around a lot of the other worklogs of complete noobs like me while collecting parts and tweaking my design. But I've actually done some work on some things and I like feedback so, In the words of our favourite plumber, here we go... BOM...

    Worklog My quest to fix this N64 Portable

    Hey guys! I've decided to make this a project for myself. With my determination and local connections, I have faith that I will eventually fix this portable. As known from my last thread, the N64 engine does not like to activate with the rest of the machine majority of the time. I opened it up...

    Question 2 questions about making a GameCube Portable!

    Hi! So I've started work on a GCP and wanted to ask a couple of questions! 1. I have a DOL-101 Motherboard, can I directly plug in a 12v battery or do I need to step the voltage down to 11.1v? If so, how do I do that? What's the easiest and safest way, because I'm not that experienced yet :D...
  10. Question Resistors for Regulators

    So I'm curious, what does everyone do for resistor values regarding the pth08080w regulators? They require some pretty oddly specific resistance to get the needed voltage for wiis so I haven't been able to find singular resistors with the correct values. I haven't actually strung them together...

    Solved What is the best way to charge battery's?

    I am referring to the circuit inside of the portable and how can you add a battery life indicator to tell if the battery is charged or dead? SOLVED:
