TurboGrafx 16, TurboDuo - any interest?
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:50:06 PM »
Here's what I've got; any interest?

TurboGrafx-16 console
TurboBooster accessory - adds composite video + stereo audio output to the TG-16
TurboDuo console - TurboGrafx + built-in TurboCD
Ninja Spirit - HuCard game with manual
Y's Book 1 & 2 CD game


I *think* I've also got a card-only copy of Keith Courage too; have to check when I get home tonight.

Details;

TurboGrafx-16 console - good condition considering its age, though clearly used. Has 1 bent pin in the rear port. I've straightened it as best I can, not yet sure if it's anything vital as I don't have an AC adapter for it at the moment, but have one on-order, coming soon. No controller, but the TurboDuo controller should work with it.
The TG-16 uses a 10.5V, center-negative AC adapter, the TurboDuo has a 10.0V center-positive AC adapter - thank you NEC.

TurboBooster - also good condition, will test when I can test the TG-16, but no reason to think it won't work fine, it's a pretty simple adapter.

TurboDuo - works, at least for card-based games. Has 1 controller, proprietary AV cable, AC adapter. It's pretty dirty & dingy though. Card games work fine. Disc games... I've only got the one to test with and it won't load. Not sure if the issue is the CD or the drive, but I'd guess it's the drive. It spins up, but always goes to a "seat disc" message.

The game cases are beat to hell but they're just standard CD jewel cases and can be easily replaced. The game cards themselves are in good shape, and the Y's CD has no scratches.


I'm in the Tampa/Oldsmar area.

Verified I do in fact have a card-only copy of Keith Courage for TG-16, so that's included as well.
