Pinekast 207: Spoilers, Harassing Jeremy and the Future!

In Pinekast tradition, we harass Jeremy and spoiler talk about a ton of television shows and movies like “Looper.” Remember that movie? Plus more nit-picky talk about Star Wars and hell, even Star Trek IV talk… That’s one of the positives about editing shows from a few months back. Everything is spoiled, even movies from 1986… and minor Godzilla spoilers… and Planet of the Apes spoilers…blah FLASH blah, blah Arrow blah…spoilers everywhere!

Pinekast 206: Exhaustive Ramblings

jangoWe are all exhausted from a long day of work, with the exception of Jeremy (of course.) So we threw away our show outline and just BS’ed. Talked about movies, games and ebay auctions. It’s very riveting. ALSO, we have an actual iTunes review from Monster Mental. He’s awesome.

Replacing the Capacitors on the Laseractive Sega PAC


The Pioneer Laseractive is truly the king of retro gaming consoles that has the ability to play Sega Genesis carts, Sega CD’s, Turbo Grafx Hucards, Turbo CD/Super CD’s and of course the laserdisc specific Mega LD discs and LD-ROM2 discs — that is of course – if you have the appropriate gaming PAC to unlock the gaming potential in this monstrosity of a gaming console. The ability to turn this mediocre laserdisc player into a multifunction multimedia powerhouse pivots on the reliability of the Sega and NEC PAC, yet over time even the most expensive gaming hardware falls prey to cheap dried out capacitors that can cause random errors like slow reading discs and games that just no longer work in the player. This isn’t a walk though in PCA’s traditional sense – think of this as a guide. What we will be doing is replacing all of the surface mounted caps on the Sega PAC with conventional electrolytic capacitors. The process of removing the surface mounted caps is truly a pain in the ass and if you mess up and rip out a lead, you will be tracing and rewiring, which isn’t very fun. The key to this project is the read, read  and read. All I did was adapt my photos to Console5′s already detailed wiki page so I strongly suggest familiarizing yourself with your equipment. I consider myself a novice with these kind of repairs and it took me over 8 hours to replace each and every cap on the two boards. This repair job was terribly time consuming and I will never do this again if it can be avoided. I repeat: this projects sucks. Once you have finally gathered enough knowledge and confidence to follow through with this project you will need these tools:


WARNING: Attempt at your own risk! DO NOT ATTEMPT unless you have some technical skills and can follow instructions perfectly. This guide is as simplified as I can make it so if none of my instructions makes any sense then please DO NOT ATTEMPT. This project will void your warranty.

[Pineconeattack! will not take any responsibility if you kill your Sega PAC.]
