Quote from: Keith Courage on October 04, 2021, 06:58:34 PMAs far as Hu cards not working, I've seen a few DUO-Rs where the solder joints for the Card slot go bad on the board. So it might just need to have all the pins for the card slot re-soldered. The 2nd possibility could be a Dirty card slot (fix by putting rubbing alcohol on a hu cards pins) or that one or more of the pins of the slot are actually bent/damaged. Usually these pins can be bent back into position again.
Most likely there isn't anything super major broken with the console since CD games load up just fine.
While you have the console open, you should also put new solder on the Power, AV, and Controllers ports. The solder for the pins on those all fail inside R and RX consoles as well.
R and RX consoles do not suffer from bad caps. Only the Black DUO systems have the bad cap problem.
If at any point you decide that you don't want to mess with the repair yourself just let me know and I can help out.

I extracted a better shot of the game, but no, I can make out what it is.
As for your repairs, we pretty much have only ONE active repair person (maybe two if you're willing to pay Canada shipping rates to Jodi/Turbo Reproductions as a last resort), ChrisComputers (KeithKourage). I'll forward him your thread, he's one of the few I privately invited to test the rebuilt forum and say hello. TheSteve/TurboKon pretty much retired from it, as did others... Voultar might take 1 Duo once in a blue moon as a special request for a friend, they require too much time to offer service for general customers.
Quote from: Psycho NecroPhile on July 15, 2015, 10:05:07 AMouch sick burn, well I'm done here, I was trying to be civil but seems that's not a welcomed trait here. Sure on ebay I was asking $800 and slowly coming down, as I will continue to do, but when I first got my TG16 this was a great community, seems to have gone down hill since then, I was ready and willing to take any acceptable offer, heck $400 shipped for it all would have been okay with me. Well, insults like I ride the short bus have caused me to lose faith in this community, so I'm pulling out, just like I did to necromancers mom last night, ohhh snapQuote from: JohnnyPhantom on July 14, 2015, 08:06:17 PMHmm no Pm received....Translation: you ride the short bus.
Quote from: FiftyQuid on May 31, 2013, 03:02:12 PMDid you try lacquer thinner on that glue? If it's not actually in the plastic lacquer thinner (in moderation) would have worked. That shit gets everything out, except coffee stains. You just have to be careful and test it first to see if the plastic reacts and by reacts I mean melts.I tried everything Gasoline, goof off, lacquer thinner, alcohol, kerosine, and sacrificial voo-doo magic, nothing helped even a tiny bit
Quote from: guest on May 31, 2013, 12:29:55 PMI'd not do that to a clean, undamaged Duo, but it looks okay (certainly better than it did).Totally agree, I don't like putting skins or decals on my systems, but had to in this case ^-^
Quote from: Duo_R on May 31, 2013, 12:32:07 PMThis is a good candidate for a paint job.Hmmmm, sounds like a idea. I may try that someday, any particular compound better than others that I should use?
You know u could try light sanding then rubbing and polishing compound on that. I had a unit that had a smaller scuff like that and it came out almost completely.
Quote from: NightWolve on December 27, 2012, 01:28:51 PMFor a second, I misinterpreted your thread thinking someone had gifted you a TurboEverdrive, but you meant that you got one for yourself this Christmas. Anyway, yeah, great gift to have bought for yourself. ;) Man, you've been pretty active, haven't ya? Already 100+ posts... I remember ya from just trying to fix your Turbo Duo like weeks ago.No I didn't gift me it, was a gift from my Brother ^-^ I'll be gifting my self a EverDrive 64 however ;)
