    Default Pc-engine/turbo Duo, Turbo Express Sound Fix & Mods

    Hello, I specialize in turbo's and pc-engine mods. I am currently offering the following services:

    Turbo Express/PC-ENGINE GT Video Fix (is backlighted but no picture) - $20
    Turbo duo - Sound fix $35

    `
    These prices includes the cost of shipping back to you and these prices are for US resident only. I will give discount for combine mods. I will also take turbo stuff like games, scrap unit and accessories in place of cash.

    I will guarantee my work with a three month warranty period. If within those three months, whatever repair or mod I made cease to function correctly, I will redo the repair or mod free of charge with no cost to you except for round trip shipping cost. I won't take responsibility for units that already had a mod or repair done by another party. Therefore no warranty provided for those units. If interested, please PM me. Thanks!

    Better prices than I've seen anywhere else. Damn good to have someone working on and modding the TG. I hope to send you mine very soon.

    Great prices. Even better if you can fix the few DUO's that the cap replacement does not solve the audio issues on.

    This is a sell thread though, and not a 'how to' thread. There is a different forum for sale threads, and this forum isn't it. As a compromise though, I will leave a shadow copy of this thread here in Technical, and move the actual thread to Buying and Selling where it belongs.

    Good Luck with your service.

    Sorry, just finally been able to get back into the thread.

    I have not tackle the S-vid mod yet.

    I have just done mods for a couple of forum member here, Soviet and Count. I can take a pic of mine where I did some caps replacement and a region mod if you like.

    O.k. I got my TG 16 back from turbokon the other day. He did the region mod for me as a trial for good reference, and all I can say is WOW! He got my TG on a Friday and had it shipped out Priority Mail on Monday! Can't beat that. The install is super clean looking too. You wouldn't know the thing had been opened, and the switch is mounted perfectly. The switch's button itself is of very good quality also, it doesn't feel "cheap".

    I would recomend turbokon highly. I am very pleased with his work and service. A+++++

    Nice, looks like the same quality of work that D-Lite does.

    Yes, top quality for sure. And I hear that D-Lite is a couple months behind. So sending your business to turbokon can get your work done faster, and help take a load of D-Lites back.

    i origionally sent him a tg express for a sound fix and my US turbo duo for a region mod and an amp upgrade (even though my express wasn't having any major sound issues at the time.)

    got my express back and it sounds great so i'm very happy with that.

    for the Duo i was a little worried at first because the sound kinda crackeled and went in and out for a second when i loaded up bonk but after playing it for many hours on and off since its running fine. i would even say it may sound a little better then it did before i sent it out. the switch works flawlessly now and looks pretty good. nice clean job on the mod. communication throughout the process was very good and always friendly. he was also pretty quick about getting everything done and sent out as well.


    here it is playing a PCE game


    heres the region switch

    i was pretty pleased with the job overall.

    I imagine it's all about the same, but can you work on the PC Engine Duo-R/RX as well? I have an RX in need of repair. Also do you do general repair beyond the services you listed? Mine doesn't read any CDs, but the controller and A/V ports are a little iffy too. They work, but it can take a bit of wiggling, so I imagine they're loose or some such.

    I ones on my list are the ones I know I can certainly do. I imagine the duo-r/duo-rx uses the same laser assembly as the regular duo which you can get a replacement for. As for the controller port, like you said, it's probably loose in the contact area to the pcb. I can definately take a look at it if you like.
