    TG-16 Sega Nomad Low Sound

    Hi,

    I have a Sega Nomad which I've done the LCD and 50 / 60Hz mod to. However I'm getting VERY low sound from the speaker. AV and headphones are fine. Any ideas of what to check for.

    I was thinking of replacing the caps on the sound section.

    I think they're just like that. Mine has fine sound from the AV and headphone jack, but the speaker sucks. I've heard similar complaints in the past.
    Modded consoles:
    Master System (v7040) with s-video & direct AV out
    Model 1 with 10mhz overclock & halt switches
    Model 1 with 10mhz 68010
    Model 2 VA2.3 with unfiltered Mega Amp, & s-video
    Model 3 VA1 with compatibility fixes & s-video
    32X with s-video

    Nomad speaker is very quiet, it doesn't reach level of other handhelds. You're supposed to use headphones.

    Hey Tiido, sorry to bring this up again. I had similar question a good while back.
    Is it possible to add a transistor just before internal speaker to boost the sound a bit more?

    thanks,

    when headphones are connected, use the interal switch on the jack to ground !Shutdown
