    Hi!

    So I used the OSSC about 2 weeks ago and it worked perfectly with my arcade board but I tried to turn it on today and the screen on the front of the OSSC turned on for a second and then it just shut off. When I tried to turn it on again the little LED marked D1 next to the screen would flash red but the light wasn’t to bright but now its not doing anything when I try to turn it on. I’m not sure if this is something I can fix myself since I have zero experience with trying to fix electronics but i’m definitely willing to try. I’m assuming a fuse blew out but I have no idea.

    Thank you!!

    Sounds like you connected the wrong PSU to the unit?

    Id have to double check since the gscarts PSU looks the same but I thought I put a sticker on them to separate them unless I just totally suck. I guess either way what can I do to fix this if possible?!

    If you connected the wrong power supply you will need to return the unit for repairs/servicing I’m afraid.

    The same thing happened to me.
    The GScartSW Lite PSU looks almost identical to the one shipped with the OSSC, but is using 9V instead of 5V.
    Of course I am a moron and grabbed the wrong PSU from the drawer :-(.

    From now on I will label all my PSUs and cables…

    Perhaps it would be prudent to encourage users to label their cables? (Points for alliteration?)

    A while back, I bought a pack of zip-tie cable labels like these to label the power cables of my consoles and analogue video equipment, specifically where I connected them to a rackmount surge protector, in case I needed to unplug anything; but these would work equally as well where they plug into the consoles/devices themselves.

    I know the power supply VGP sells for the OSSC is an off-the-shelf component, but I’d like to see labels added to both ends of the cable, and then point out to people that it’s labeled on the relevant product pages.

    Labeling power cables is equally valid for any other device, including superg’s switches, though the next revision of the gscart is expected to use MicroUSB for power.
