Just an update I got it fixed thanks for all your help!!! I will leave the post incase others need help.. thanks guys!
I got a sega cd model 1, tried it, dead.. I checked the fuse that is common to die and it was dead. I wired in a new one and confirmed with my multimeter that it works. When I try to power it, nothing. Once it flashed on (the red and green lights on front).
I put in a 2.5 amp fuse (same as what was in there). I wired it with small wires and into a fuse holder. I have checked the fuse and the new one is not getting fried. I took the multimetere to the new ones and it says it works.
Any suggestions? Do you think the wires are too small? fuse too small? I have heard some say that you have to up the ampage? Any suggestions? I attached a photo...I am wondering if the smaller wires are too small? the wire I used was from a battery powered christmas village light set says on it 1.5 volts x 2.... If it is the wire what size gauge should be used? I am not an electrical expert...... but would really appreciate some advice.
