So as you may or may not be aware my Megadrive 2 failed on me while in mid lesson.
I jumped straight on eBay and won an auction for a very used but guaranteed working Megadrive uno! Straight to WhatsApp I went and messaged my Bro Retrolechuck with my £6 winning giddy excitement. His reply… “So you know your cables won’t fit from your Megadrive 2 right…?” Of course I did, err maybe not, in my excitement of eBay bidding I failed to do what I like to do best.. RESEARCH!
So back to eBay, luckily the same seller had a scart cable so that was easy. The power supply was a bit more expensive than I had hoped, I didn’t want a knock off one so I found a suitable original for what I deemed a fair price(£10). Turns out that was coming from the town next-door, I like it when random chance like that happens.
Two red royal mail cards gather on my coffee table during the working week.
Yesterday I went and picked my parcels up, did some shoe shopping for my little one and then back to Base.
The Megadrive was very well used, my heart sank a little and excitement waned. Is this going to extend my 2016 retro failure?
Sure bloody well is! DOA is the technical term, dead as a
Not having much luck this year am I, anyway I contacted the seller and he was very understanding, full refund was issued.
Turns out that my Bro had a spare of a spare with a missing volume slider, he kindly donated it to me (biscuit, thank you). So all ends well, a bit of diy and I should have one complete Medal river(auto correct for Megadrive?) .
I’m also thinking of customising the shell of the faulty Megadrive, thinking SG-1000 colours, any suggestions accepted.
Oh and who knew the original Megadrive build one was 1080p? (lolz)
