Sega Nomad

Post by ryux » Wed Dec 05, 2012 11:44 pm

Hey guys
I fell in love with the Sega Nomad, so i decided to get one from ebay and pay for the high shipping costs etc (because they are not available in europe).

I got the unit and first thing i noticed is that the screen looks very blurry and the ccf light is very power insufficient (and unbalanced).

Also the unit was dirty and i did some cleaning, also cleaned all the contacts and resoldered DC plug, cleaned headphone socket etc.

I ordered a 3,5" LCD Display for a direct replacement.

i will post some more pics as soon as i have more time.

i am really looking forward on playing kid chameleon and streets of rage 1-3 on my nomad :D

It's a great handheld console, one thing I found out recently was that it doesn't have a reset switch though - just power on/off.

Would still love to get hold of one in good condition. Good luck with the screen replacement.

Screen already got replaced mate :-D

I might consider selling one of my nomads after modding later...

Ordered a LiPo battery and will soon build a long lasting battery pack.
