public service announcement

check the batteries in your games.  replace them if they have been in there a long time.  better to spend a few bucks on batteries than a new board or board repair.

my personal advice is to stay away from duracell.  to each their own.

Duracells are the best at shooting ranges, hard target to kill...

while this repair was about 10 bucks in parts fixing and testing what u cant see is a royal pain.  lots of traces under the chip has gaps in them.  new plug and header pins, chips, sockets.  testing and fixing traces.  not fun.  much easier to change the batteries

Here we go again.  Cue the thread about remote battery holders vs button batteries vs nvrams vs capacitors. 😃😃

i don't mind battery threads.

on that note, i'm running energizer ultimate lithiums that i installed in september of 2012, thanks to a village thread. they all still register 1.70 volts each.

F#@$ YOU DURACELL.

Energizer E3 litiums are amazing.. I use them in my xbox 360 controllers and get amazing results.. I can nuke a duracell in a matter of weeks in those controllers (I go on LONG COD sessions) the E3's go Months..

Same here...no more alkaline batteries, no more worries.  They're only $1.50 each on Amazon.
