    I received my OSSC 1.6 a couple of weeks ago, and it has been working fine with my SNES and NES using an HD Retrovision component cable. I ordered a SCART cable for the SNES multi out connector to be able to plug in both consoles and switch the input using the OSSC, I don’t have enough consoles to justify either a component or SCART switch. I plugged in the SCART cable (from retro access) to both SNES and OSSC and the console doesn’t power on! Same with the NES (modded with NESRGB and multi out connector). When I unplug the cable from the OSSC, but not from the console, the console powers on just fine.

    Is there a short somewhere preventing my consoles from powering on? Has this caused damage to my consoles? What is the solution here?




    You’re the second person to have this problem! Please e-mail in so we can RMA the unit for you. Use the contact form here –

    We need to investigate this issue so I’d definitely be interested in having your OSSC back for further investigation.

    Oh and no, there was no damage to the consoles I connected to a similarly faulty unit, though I wouldn’t exactly recommend leaving them connected.



    Thanks for the reply @buckoa51. I just sent you an email. Very curious to understand what might be going on here! I didn’t leave the consoles connected for more than 15 seconds at a time, so I’m not too worried following your comment 😉



    The only thing I can think of preventing a console powering on is a short from SCART pin 8 to ground.
