@eqe thanks for spotting that key slot. I just compared a ps/2 connector with it and it looks like it's a bit larger than the mini-din shield, but smaller than a full-size. Was kind of hoping I could still make a franken-cable for it. I checked around for the part number (found it in the HMM for this model) but no luck. Still thinking I'm going to have to try and replace it with a barrel but I'd rather not if I don't have to.
@sinistar that's further than I got. Where'd you find that? I'm considering seeing if I can open it and just replace it with a barrel jack so I can use a more modern ac/dc adapter
me: an old game console is a portal into a labyrinth of half-forgotten pasts, a bridge to one's former life in all its sweetness and regret. a place, real yet unreal, lost in the immensity of time.
