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!

Do you mean a constant buzzing noise, or just a single click?

If it's the former, it's likely a dirty sensor causing the servo driver to overload. You can clean it with clean, dry compressed air, or one of those "canned air" dusters they sell in computer stores.

I posted about it: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... t_id=28999#forumpost28999

Let us know how it turns out. If that doesn't fix it, maybe posting a video would help diagnose it.

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.
