It is possible but not going to be easy at all! The LED array are all very tiny and sealed inside a plastic case. If you replace them, you would need very small surface mounted LED and pack them real small or get a custom made LED bar array in your desired color.

I wouldn't try to custom build the LED array but rather look around and see if anyone makes an LED array bar that is 224 LED tall and measures about 1/2 inch total. Even the smallest single SMD LED couldn't be packed into 1x224 array for less than half inch.

I don't know about yellow, wouldn't they be very bright compared to red? Blue maybe if you put in some resistor to cut down the current and its brightness.

Bottom line: if you got the time, money, and motivation, by all means knock yourself out! Do post pictures if you succeed! But IMO it's not worth the trouble at this time.

It's all working and good but I still haven't figured out how to take the bottom plate off. Since the whole underside was covered with foam sheet I didn't want to tear it. i ended up having to clean the whole bottom the hard way.

My scanner on the other hand decided to make loud rattling noise and not scan anything. :( Time for a new scanner.

Heh I wish I could offer my time for testing but I don't have any experience or means of programming chips. I do have a few TV's to test it out including a standard 4:3 TV and widescreen TV to see if anything goes wrong.

AFAIK only 4 games are not available for Flash cart. They have been dumped but not released. Which sucks because not everyone would want to pay around $500 for Virtual Space Invader collection or other extremely rare Japanese releases.

Looks very good! Should this take off and costs reasonable it may spur interest in VB collecting from people who have shunned VB because it causes too much headaches. Plus no need to worry about broken LED display :)

Any idea what the target price may be? Also could it be made to output in separate red and blue for 3D mode?

Anyone know how do I remove the bottom plate from the counter top model? I'm trying to throughly clean my display and the bottom plate has lots of ridges which makes cleaning a bit of a pain. I was hoping there's an easy way to take the bottom plate off and just hose em outside. :)

Aside that, all I got left is to splice in replacement wire and install a working VB display and my display's all set and clean.

I also need to get my scanner hooked up to my parent's PC as my PC's blown up (read here) because the ad insert are different from hi res Canadian and you didn't have any other high res version. It's the same as the scan here, first and third panel from left on the top.
