    So my dad picked up 2 1.5 volt batteries the other day.
    Yes, 1.5 volts.
    1.5x2=3
    what console/handheld uses 3 volts of power?
    ...

    You guessed it, a game and watch.
    i've nearly gotten my dads old game and watch working.
    onlty problem is that the lcd wont show proplerly...[​IMG]
    can someone maybe explain as to why? sometimes when you press the ACL button, little shadows of the characters show up.
    i think its a problem with the connections from the main chip on the inside to the lcd.
    anyway, suggestions for the problem are welcome.
    oh and btw, to a collector, a working game and watch is worth 100 AU. I've seen some on ebay that are 200 though.

    Ha I just remebered I have 3 Game and Watches in my cupboard. Fired up Donkey Kong, works great [​IMG]
    Also have Oil Panic, it has some yellowness in the middle of the bottom screen
    and also Snoopy Tennis, parts of the screen look like they have LCD leaking in them.

    I have the Zelda G&W [​IMG]
    Bought it at a flee market... for 3,33USD. That's 2,26 euro.
    But back then, it was 5 dutch guilders.

    It actually was for a long trip in a train.
    But it turned out to be a collectors item.
    And.... the aunt of my GF, wants to sell me her DK G&W for 30 euro's [​IMG]
