    If you aren't lucky enough to find one, PM me. I made a n64 portable and can print you off a case if needed.

    Pretty much what they said. I found two on eBay for around $40. They're rare and you'll have to do some searching to find them. I'm using the other one that I have for a Wii/snes portable

    Started working on this project again after a long hiatus. I plan to finish this thing out. I bought a new board and did a full board reduction. I must have introduced a short or severed a connection somewhere because when I supply power, the chips remain cold.

    Im not sure how to troubleshoot or trace my power lines to see where I might need to jump a connection. I did the 3.3v relocation on the back of my board, but those lines are cold... I guess my board isnt getting any power and I need to learn how to trace these power lines out.

    What did I learn: Troubleshooting these boards is a PITA.

    How do you troubleshoot the board after a reduction? After I trim off the LED, I really have no way of telling if my board has power, but no AV
