In the last couple of weeks I’ve acquired another Nintendo Vs PCB from a seller in the UK, and it came with an interesting Nintendo AV-01 board, which is video inverter/sound amplifier.

I tested the PCB and it turned out to be faulty 🙁

However this started me thinking about how I could potentially test these boards outside of the Nintendo Red Tent, and potenitally look at fixing them if this was possible.

So I started working on a test bench setup. Initially things didn’t go well. I built an adaptor and got nothing on screen, and the AV-01 looked like it wasn’t getting the correct power.

After some perseverance, and some repairs to the AV-01 I was finally in business!

What this also means is that I could potentially use this setup to run a Vs board in a Jamma cab or similar!
