My email if you wish to do buisness thru that than on this site: jetblue7@gmail.com

Hi,before I start I have no paypal. Cash for any of these items is thru concealed letter in envelope,dvd case in bubble mailer or trade goods. For console repair cash hidden in the cd lid or slot door or where ever you think no one would look. I know its risky but I was sending/receiving cash all over in letters for years and never lost a one. Some were returned to sender because the address got worn off.
Also I do not do mods,just repairs. For mods seek others on this site. They will give you a good combo deal on a cap change and region/av mod combined
Disclaimer:
Many have these devices in their machines for over a year and are happy. Many months have been used in researching these and the science is sound. But as always I am not responsible for misuse,wrong installation or your console dying from these. But if something does go wrong I'm sure we can fix it.
Prices can change at any time. But probably wont,mainly if I dry up the supplier and have to get slightly more expensive stuff.
This thread will be updated as supply is replenished or new services added.
Locals in the chicagoland area drop off service available. Save some cash in shipping. Bus and L-train directions at request.


Im selling my cdrom gears and duo plugs for any that need it.

TG/PCE Cdrom gear fix $7 a set,because of the slow resupply I must limit 1 set per customer for 30 days.
They are soft brass and are loud when running. Some compare it to a dreamcast. There is no grinding as the gears are curved and polished so no sharp areas. Cannot find them in plastic. This is the difference between a dead paper weight of a cdrom or a working one.

Free install if you cant do it yourself but pay shipping back.
Here's a crude install sheet:

Tutorial here: http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/ind...?topic=11677.0
And of course I can be contacted to help in the installation or questions at all hours either here on trollbox,on msn or on the temporary pcfx shoutbox chat.

Genesis to Duo ac adapter plugs $10:

Use a model 1 or model 2 genesis ac adapter on your duo,safely tested.

I also sell the duo male plug if you have a bad one on your ac adapter for $4.00


I also do this thing:
captastrophy2.jpg

Thats 8 duos,8 cdroms,4 supercdrom2,6 turboexpress/gt,5 game gears and 1 duo's sound caps,duo tap,hitachi saturn and a mac se/30 from an epic 4 month work sprint I finished last february. Most of the caps are leaking and smell of vinegar.

TGCdrom/PCECdrom $15-cap change,resolves low volume on headphones but not really necessary when plugged in cd dock. I do not have lasers but if you get one I will change it free of charge with either cap change or gear change.

Turbo Duo $30 cap change. I have no lasers for these but if you get one I will change it free of charge.

PCE Supercdrom2 $30-I have lasers for these,$8 for just the sound board.

TGExpress/GT $15-Picture has a few regular caps in it because pads were lifted by another so a regular cap had to be used to span the large gap. But sometimes pads do get lifted and will be repaired.

PC engine LT $30,its tight in there and the motherboard is fragile.

Sega Game Gear $15

Virtual Boy $10-lines on eye fix.

sega cd belt model 1 changed $10
sega cd model 2 fuse change $8

CD-I time keeper battery clip mod $25. this is a very difficult mod so i must charge more. dremel is involved. CD-I cd drive rubber belt change $10.
It will look like this pic from cdi blog:

atari 5200 ac adapter mod $20

psp slim screen change or fuse for backlight work $10-i have no screens. if you have a replacement case,change free with order. case changed any order or poychase if you dont need psp work done.

gamecube laser change,cd switch change or spindle motor replacement $10-i have no lasers.

dreamcast laser change or spindle motor change $10. i have no lasers for these,a sac unit from ebay must be provided.

saturn laser change-$10,will provide link where to get laser.

neo geo bios-$10,provide a socket and bios chip or will be straight thru solder. old bios will be preserved and returned.

Just about any console not listed is $30 cap change,handheld $15.

This is for a full cap replacement with ceramic and tantalum caps. This should fix any problems that are cap related.
Shipping back to be paid by customer.
I do not do mods.
The Turbo Duo is a finicky beast so 50% of the time what seems like a simple sound issue gets more complicated and more parts are needed so costs will go up. Security screws changed to regular philips screws done free with every order. Also take note it takes me time to return them depending if I can get a ride to the post office.

The virtual boy fix is different than the common method. Its jetblue's own technique which requires soldering. I have 2 techniques,researching a 3rd,for problems the virtual boy's eyes suffer from scan lines. Discount of course if you can open the unit yourself and remove the offending eye or eye's and mail it to me in one of those small priority boxes so I can service it. Many already have this fix for well over a year with no recurrence including my own unit.
This is covered by a special jets warranty if the scan lines return.


and of course I have my little chopsados for a trade if any need them.


I have other references on pcfx and digipress. No repair is late or order unfulfilled.

Hey! :mr_t: I'm pretty sure he edited that in AFTER I typed that question!

Either that, or my reading abilities have taken a serious dive.

I just wanna bump my friends repair thread. Jetblue does awesome work and is a real asset to the pcengine/retrogaming community. He has brought so many users cd-roms back to life he needs a damn metal or something. His other repairs are also top notch and he's a man who likes the challenge of bringing your consoles back to life. I just got my duo and game gear back from him and everything is in awesome condition. This game gear I swear looks and sounds better than new.
Don't be turned off by his payment method either, he's a trustworthy guy in it for the hobby and you can send him your stuff with 100% confidence.

Just a thought, have people mail in there systems with a prepaid return shipping label. This way you can mail something through the USPS without going to the post office, they do free pick up.

I'm the reason this got bumped. I mentioned that i recently found my TE no longer had sound. Told it was bad caps. Then I mentioned having a PCE Duo & PAC-N10 that could most likely use a re-cap as well.

And voltronbadass pointed me in this direction. While I see no mention of re-capping PACs, it was mentioned in chat that jetblue has done those as well.

It's good to see so many others posting up saying the same thing I was getting told in chat. Sending a PCE Duo, TE, & PAC-N10 off to someone you don't know wouldn't be easy if you had no feedback from others.

i use a chopstick method to remove the caps with 2 irons so there is little risk of lifting a pad or trace. extremely labor intensive.

also the virtual boy fix is on hold for a newer innovative fix im researching.

i couldn't do half of this if it weren't for member thesteve having my back. thanks a ton steve. between us there is little we cannot fix. i fixed a damn acura mdx gps screen the other day!
i don't make much money doing this but the friends i make from it is price immeasurable

Those PAC repair pics look good...

Am thinking my time frame on getting some stuff re-capped is about 2 weeks. So should be hitting you up soon.
