Awesome, thanks for the reply! Sounds like my issue may be the same as in that topic you linked. I'll try cleaning it and see what happens.

Clicking noise when turning on VB

Recently, when I turn on my Virtual Boy, there is a clicking noise, and I don't get any video. It seems to be coming from the right side of the unit. Any idea what may be the issue and how to fix it?

Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!

Just watched your last few reviews. How are you capturing your VB video? It looks good!

Hey, John! I'm relatively new here, too, at least in terms of (semi) actively posting. Hope you get to enjoy your Virtual Boy soon!

Please tell me you weren't the person who spent $12.90 on this ad. :)

I have no idea what the ad's from, but my guess would be any of the mid-90s gaming magazines. If I still had all my old GamePros, I could check them.

By the way, and on a tangent here, but Blockbuster was so shady with its "3-day rentals." They used to hit so many people with late fees because they counted the day you rented something as the first day.

One VFD game that I highly recommend for anyone, is Astro Thunder (second picture). I'm telling ya, check out some videos of this game on youtube, this little machine works its ass off to keep you entertained, and does an amazing job with its multiple levels and game speeds. If anyone is only going to have 1 VFD game in their collection...let it be this one!


I'll look that one up!

Good video! I like Galactic Pinball, though I wish the physics felt more like a genuine pinball game.

Also, I think your hair looks really good in this video. Probably not the feedback you were looking for, but it's true. :)

That's the thing, I DO want to include mini people in the room as well, who are the right scale and size, but I also want them to look like people you might actually see in an arcade . . .


Are you saying that Snake Eyes and Scarlett wouldn't enjoy some arcade gaming? ;)

I don't have any of these newer machines, but my brothers had a lot of the old electronic games (baseball, bowling, football, Frogger, etc.). I actually bought one for myself within the past year (Alien Attack) because I remembered enjoying playing the one my brother had.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but does anyone know if these screws will work for the plastic piece on the bottom that covers the cart (where the serial number is)?

When I got my Virtual Boy, the screws that hold on this piece were missing, and since I never had the original screws, I've been afraid to try to replace them, as I don't want to do any damage.

Also, does anyone know if the security screws that hold this piece on are the same as what was used for the SNES? If so, I have a spare SNES from which I could salvage screws for my VB.
