Description

This repair kit includes the components you need to resurrect a Sega Dreamcast with dead controller ports. This kit includes all the components you need to completely refresh your Dreamcast's controller board and get gaming again.

The Dreamcast Controller Port Kit includes:
- 1 Resettable Fuse
- 1 Capacitor
- 1 Resistor
-1 ML2032 Battery
-1 Coin Cell Battery Holder

Fuse
The most likely cause of dead Dreamcast ports is a blown fuse. The 72v 400mA fuse included in this kit is an upgrade from the original design as it is resettable, meaning, if the fuse blows again it will automatically reset after a power cycle. of the Dreamcast (yes, turning it off and on again!).

Capacitor
Capacitors keep a consistent and even flow of electricity to the controller board components. This kit includes a replacement 47uf 10v capacitor. Capacitors degrade over time so it's a good idea to replace it with a new one while you have the circuit board out. It's possible that a bad capacitor could trip a fuse too.

Resistor
Included is a 13k Ohm 0.5 w resistor. Though it's not likely this component will cause your controller ports to die, may as well replace it while you have the board out and soldering iron ready to go as some preventive maintenance.

ML2032 Battery
The Dreamcast requires a 3v rechargeable battery to store CMOS settings when the console is powered off. This replacement battery is a manufacturer recommend, 3v ML2032 rechargeable coin cell battery. Other kits I've seen include a CR2032 or LI2032 3.6v batteries - 3.6v is too high of voltage and can damage your Dreamcast! Watch out for them!

Replaceable Battery Holder
The OEM battery requires soldering to replace. The battery holder included in this kit will allow you to swap out a replacement battery without the need of desoldering and soldering if you ever have to replace it in the future.

Product FAQs

Most of the game consoles and accessories we stock are decades old. When we get them in, the first thing we do is inspect them thoroughly for defects. This includes their functionality, durability, and physical appearance - inside and out. Any defects we find are fully dealt with. If there are problems with the functionality, they are professionaly repaired and retested. Phyiscal blemishes are restored as best as they can be. Every item is stripped down to bare parts, cleaned, and polished. Not all physical blemishes can be restored so you should expect any used gear to have minor scuffs and scrapes. It's not until each item fully meets our quality standards before we list it on out website.

In most cases, no. We stock multiple items of each product and use a stock image (that we create) to show them off. Feel assured that the product you purchase will be of equal quality and appearance as the one shown on the website.
