Ah yes, I remember now reading that. I'm on the lookout for a spare unit, hopefully I can find one at a fair price. Although with eBay these days I don't have high hopes.

As above I need a new right eye display. Sadly mine has some dead LED's that cannot be repaired :'(

If anyone has one, or a unit they are looking to sell with a working right eye piece please drop me a PM or email me at matspeedle@gmail.com

Thanks in advance!

I'd also be interested in one once it finds release :)

A good question from PerfectlyNoah on what games would see the ability to use it, I think the simple answer is none of the retail games, but it would open a whole new world for the Homebrew chaps.

Do we know if any of the retail games might have supported the link cable, obviously none make the option obvious but perhaps there's some unused code floating about in the games?

Mario's Tennis seems like an ideal candidate to have a link option buried in it's code...

I think if Nintendo had pushed a link cable at launch with a game like Mario's Tennis it may have been a bit more popular once people realised they could play with friends.

We can all dream can't we :)

These are indeed still for sale send Hedgetrimmer a PM for details on payment etc.

I recently ordered one and to say they are sturdy is an understatement! These things are rock solid and make the stand much more rigid!

I highly recommend these to all VB owners. Get one before they go!

I got my screens back from Johan (TheForce81) yesterday, the quality of his repair is top notch as was his communication throughout. I cannot recommend his services enough!

Very happy to say my VB is working perfectly once more thanks to him!

It's great that we have people like this in the community to keep us gaming on our VB's!

Ok so things to check.

If you have a multimeter check the voltage on your battery pack to to rule out duff batteries and the like. Also the pins on the back of the controller sometimes don't make good contact with the battery pack so just pull them out a little to ensure good contact.

Insert the game cart a few time 20 or so to ensure the connections are solid, this also helps if the contacts are dirty. Even new if this has been sitting around the contacts might still be dirty depending on where and how it's been stored.

Some contact cleaner on the cart connector would also be a good start. As well as on the battery pack contact points.

If the unit can't detect a game it won't power on.

I'd be very surprised if it's not working at all.

I bought mine as a non working unit that wouldn't power on, this turned out to be dodgy contacts on the battery pack due to leakage and the controller pins not making proper contact with the battery pack. Obviously yours wont have the leakage issue but it may have a problem with the pins.

oddly enough that was the last game I played as well, it really is to me the best game on the system, lovely graphics, solid gameplay and great sound.

A Mario rom hack would be pretty awesome! I'm surprised no one has done it already! :)
