It can be fun, but you have to tell us first what it does, what it doesn't do? Also, what are your abilities in repairing things and do you have some tools?


well i just bought it but it has no cables and they didnot tell me whats wrong and i have all the tools i think i need


Okay so have you hooked all the cables up? Do you have power? Use your multimeter to check that first.


i dont have cables


that would be the first thing to do..then you can see what powers up. ;-)

I'd strongly suggest you get the ac supply, controller and the av leads or you'll never know much about the faults. Once you have those things you can plug it in to the tv and see what if anything works. If you have a known good power supply and the unit lights up or you get a signal on the tv but the game won't run then you are narrowing down the field of errors. At the moment you're looking for a needle in a haystack.
