PCE – All opened up
After hearing a rattling noise inside my Duo-R, as if something was loose, as well as wanting to see what shape the capacitors were in*, I opened it up. Turned out the noise came from a loose bit of plastic of unknown origin and the capacitors looked fine to my untrained eyes. However, one of the small stick-things that keeps the CD-unit in place had snapped, some glue did fix that though. The box the unit came in was a bit roughed up, perhaps that was the cause…?
Anyhow, I thought I’d post the pictures I took of the inside of the unit, should anyone find it interesting :p
Unit seems to work fine otherwise, I need more games for it! 😀
* A common problem for normal Duo’s are that the capacitors go bad. Duo-R and RX’s are usually not effected as often and are generally seen as more reliable but you never know…
