a single black line is a dead led on the board. its not your ribbon


I have a system that I got the permanent solder fix for about 4 or so years ago (by a skilled member of PVB, not some eBay hack) and it had worked fine but recently now has a single dead line in one display and I had been meaning to ask this too.

So it sounds like that LED board is shot and just needs to be replaced? (i.e. can't be repaired somehow?)

Wow, what amazing work! I feel like this has been one of the holy grails regarding the VB's future. While $20 isn't super cheap, it's not at all prohibitively expensive, though I realize labor would add cost too. Point is, it's good to know there is already another option for a future time when donors are more expensive and/or hard to source.

Bumping this thread just for a check-in. I wonder if anyone has anything to add that they are working on these days?

Welcome to PVB! I am a backer of this project and I intend to get more some more in addition to the "package" I picked to cover my homebrew, English translations, FlashBoy+... plus have a few to grow on. I, for one, have never been happy with my VB cart storage options and was thrilled you are making this happen!

As for covers, dig through all the posts and links on the below thread and I think you will get most of what you are looking for (lots of links to other sources for you to sort out):

These are all things that were posted publicly on PVB, so I presume everyone would be cool with you using the stuff they made for this purpose, but it might be cool to PM folks just to be sure.

Welcome back! Hopefully someone here has one that they can spare, but if not RetroDan has said he intends to do another run in the future. He has asked for patience though because his run is not eminent so keep an eye on the below thread if you don't get a board from the community now.

Semi-related... if the battery is no longer holding score and unlocks data, you can manually unlock those modes as well. See the below thread.

Yes, that reeks of scam. $110 is way to low for what's being offered, but too high for "random person ended up with one and doesn't know what it's worth" but the feedback and pictures are a dead giveaway.

Some sort of scam, or at least something very fishy, occurred there. The seller of the $110.00 auction had zero feedback, and that seller used the same photos from this previous auction:

Well done dude... I just logged in so I could post about this. It's not my KS either and I don't own any of his other books, but I did meet him at a game convention last year and flip though a couple of them. He was cool and they seemed very well done, so backing this was a no-brainer for me.

Thanks very much, but I did end up acquiring that game and manual so I'm good. I appreciate the follow-up though.

I have recently acquired a spare vertical force and manual. The cart sticker is faded. No dust cover. I would do 40 shipped paypal goods or I'd knock off whatever the fees are from the price if you wanted to do friends and family. The case pictured is not included.
