    To many people is not a big deal that people still have working functional classic systems like SNES and NES or GENESIS. I mean speed runners use them all the time. But I'm curious, that while I don't personally know any people willing to service such things, where do other people get them fixed if they ever need it, especially the video out mods. I be a bit sad if i had discontinued systems that don't work and can't play that I can't get serviced.

    I do my own repairs, if it's a simple solder job, or just replacing a part I can buy online.
