Nintendo Repair Center‘s SNES Control Deck Tester
This SNES Control Deck Tester is very interesting: the chassis should be the same used for the Campus Challenge and Super Famicom Challenge cars. And what about the SNES-CD proto?
Anyway, the Control Deck Tester was used in Nintendo Authorized Repair Centers to perform a quick test on returned SNES units. It has indipendent video and audio outputs.
I’ll give you some more informations about how it works, from my Nintendo World Class Service Manual.
Check the picture:
Can you see the 6 top-left indicators?
First one (top-left), “used in conjunction with the video button“,Â indicates that “the RGB output of the SNES has been selected for viewing.”
Now continue clockwise (top-right)-this one, “used in conjunction with the clock button“, Â shows that “the CIC clock has been selected as the tester’s clock output.”
Next one (middle right), “used in conjunction with the clock button“,Â shows that the system clock has been selected as the tester’s clock output.
Next one (bottom right), “used in conjunction with the clock button“, shows that “the 21MHZ clock has been selected as the tester’s clock output.”
Bottom left, “used in conjunction with the video button“, shows that “the video output of the snes has been selected for viewing“.
You must know that this tester must be connected to the SNES also with an audio-video cable (it il a male-male cable). Then the tester may be connected to a monitor and to a Frequency Counter.
Now, the two colored buttons on the left. Top one (brown) is the video button. Used to select the video outputs (video, s-video, rgb) that the tester must show. Bottom one (blue) is the RGB Select Indicator: used in conjunction with the video button, shows that the RGB output of the SNES has been selected for viewing.
Right side. Green button is the Back Button: when pressed at the end of a testing step, will repeat the step.
Red button. Next Button, forward to the next test.
This testing units will perform many tests, with coloured pics and a picture of a girl (?).
Since it’s not easy to find the manuals for these units, I hope that Control Deck Tester owners will appreciate this.
New Zelda cels!
He has some new Captain N cels too!
In the following days I’ll try to do a Pong-special search, with the weirdest pong systems on eBay.
Here you have a quick preview, with a magnificent pong system from Argentina:
