Image Noise (RAD2X + SSDS3)

04 Feb 2020, 00:29

I'm having a huge issue with image noise and it's driving me crazy since it's pretty much noticeable.

Which steps should I take to ensure that this is something not related to the Super SD System 3?

Details of my PC Engine are:

PCEngine model: Core Grafx

Power Supply: 3rd Party.

Video cable: Retrogamingcables' Sega Mega Drive 2 / Genesis 2 RAD2X cable

SD card brand: Kingston

Region modded?: No, but other mods were made (7374 RGB amp - mickcris amp; jailbars fix)

SSDS3 revision 1, 2 or B?: B.

In Game Trigger enabled in the Options menu? No.

Any other details specific to your setup: LCD Display.

Remove your internal RGB mod completely and be more specific about the power supply. Who is it made by? What is the voltage and amperage?

Yep, Mobius is right. Internal RGB amp and/or power supply is likely to blame.

I've attached a link to a image of my power supply. I have no idea who manufactured it. It came bundled with my console. Output is 9V - 1.4A.

It looks like a super cheap Chinese supply.

Any tips on a good power supply? I want to purchase one before trying to remove the rgb mod.

That's the power supply I use for my Genesis Model 1 VA3 and also have one for my Coregrafx 2. They don't even get warm.
