    I'm not an expert by any means nor do I have any knowledge of LCDs but if the backlight is powered separately I would assume that would be fairly simple to add that roller in line on the positive...
  5. Sticky: Wish I had an answer for you.

    Gonna be honest I've never touched a nomad period. But logic tells me if there are any components (like a resistor or capacitor for instance) in line after the cxa there may be a difference in where...

    Still no luck on the VA 6. I have no idea what's causing it but when I turn it on my dc output voltage from the cord drops from 9v to 6v. Wish I had my original cord :/

    I haven't started working on the CD yet I'm still working on the VA 2 and VA 3 Genesis('s). I have replaced the v regs. In both gennys. The VA 3 has a good voltage improvement up to 4.8v I think, but...

    Yeah, I'm going to try the full cap replacement on the VA 3 this weekend n see what happens, I have more hope for it than the VA2 because of the rust. As for the oscilloscope I'll have to put on the...
