    Default VCI-100: No Power

    Hey Ya'll.

    So I used my VCI-100 as normal the other night at home. No issues.
    Unplugged it and put it away.

    Next morning, hooked it up.....no power.
    None whats so ever.

    Opened her up and can not see anything blatantly wrong. No wires fried....Green board is all fine. No dry spots.

    Everything seems 100%.

    I tried all my USB cables....no dice.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    This is going to sound stupid, but I assume you've checked the power switch is set to USB power?

    Yes, but thanks for offering something!



    I think the switch could possibly be cooked.

    Going to take it to my Electrical Knowing mate over the weekend.....maybe he can check it for me.

    BLEAK!

    try loading it in boot mode or LED test mode and see if you get anything.

    Do you have a regular power cable you can plug into it? That would tell you if it was USB related.

    I tried it all expect the Power Supply....I don;t have one.

    Been using USB all the way.

    Yes, I tested once it was open....but was VERY careful not to have anything touching etc.

    I am pretty good with Electronics etc.

    Did you try it on a different computer? That would also verify that what youre plugging into is also ok.

    You should be able to get a power supply that would work for fairly cheap. I'm not sure of the exact specs, but one of those with the different tips and you can switch around polarity would probably work.

    From the Vestax site. Polarity may be marked near the plug in on the VCI

    Power:9V, 150mA
    Adoptor:DC 9V 500mA

    Am sure you will fix it *sends out positive vibes*

    What will you do if you can't? Get another VCI Arcade or switch up.

    Just got me thinking, I'm not sure what i'd do, be a fairly tough call but I know I'd be devastated if I lost my VCI Arcade now.

    It feels kind of unique cause I did it myself but it's kind of old technology...

    I got no interest in an S4 or any other controller out there at the moment either...
