So I'm online looking for a power adapter for my Sega CD 1. I come across an auction for an adapter that says it works on NES, SNES and Genesis and I thought 'hey, would my spare NES adapter work?'. Those who know where this is going should laugh now and get it out of their system.
I checked the adapter and the bottom of the Sega CD, noting that the adapter only has 0.1 amps more than the input needed. Fast forward to smoke billowing out of my Sega CD and the adapter plug thrown across the room. As I realize that the Nintendo adapter has AC output.
I blew it. I popped the top off the Sega CD to see the damage and find out that Sherlock Holmes has been in the CD tray the whole time, unbeknownst to me. I took out the PCBs and checked the damage.
So that's it. The jumper wire there has melted a little and there is smoke damage.
I really want this Sega CD to work! I can solder and use a DMM and stuff, is this sucker fried or can I save it? It was only exposed to about 3 seconds worth of AC and the power was not on or anything.
Thanks for any help, I really feel like a dumbass.
