Appropriate power supplies to use with NeoSD?

09 Jan 2019, 07:36

My AES system is a model intended to be used with the 5v PRO-POW power supply. I bought it used many years ago and it came with a third party power supply.

This third party power supply has worked just fine with the NeoSD. But it makes a clicking noise, which makes me nervous.

So I bought this power supply: https://en.retrogamesupply.com/collecti ... eo-geo-aes

This new PS works with regular carts fine, but not the NeoSD. With the NeoSD I get really garbled graphics, and many games reset at the eyecatcher over and over.

This new PS has 2.5 amps versus my original PS's 4 amps, could that be the difference?

Anyone know of a source of good power supplies to use with the NeoSD for America (110v)?

The RetroGameCave supply works well. General rule of thumb most people seem to follow is 5v 3A on any of the 5v systems. They definitely have a very high draw compared to the 9v systems.

Don't waste your money with PSU.

I had a ProPow 5v Neo Geo, but missing the original PSU. I have tried 2 PSU from different sources. The best candidate was a 5V 3A, sold by a retro game shop and similar to the one sold by RetroGameCave:

But results were still bad.

So I decided to change my console for a ProPow3 model with its original 10V 1A PSU and now it works.

I recently got a power supply from this site:

The Neo•Geo supplies can be found here:

It works great, no problems with real games, or NeoSD Pro.
