Philips Videopac+ G7400 RGB/Composite Hack – Repair – Recap

I have received a gift from my dear friend Andrea Pierdomenico a Videopac+ G7400 console with the BASIC Microsoft module and some cartridges that go into my collection of videopac cartridges.

This console running smoothly but with some problems.

  • Power button not working (as usual)
  • A capacitor of the power supply section has a broken leg.

The works that have been made:

  • Replacing the power switch with a compatible one.
  • Full recap of the power supply section.
  • RGB/Composite HACK for unparalleled video output.
  • RF Module Removal.
  • Shifted the 220V Power Cable into the hole of the RF antenna.
  • Two video cables (Composite-Audio / RGB-Audio)

Videopac+ G7400 RGB/Composite Hack (components that need to be added):

All the works that have been made are documented in the photos below:

    Hey xAD, how are you? I’ll do this exact mod on my G7400 (in fact I was researching about it yesterday, talk about coincidences!) and I was wondering: do you think it would be possible to convert the G7400 from 50 to 60Hz, by replacing a crystal?

    Thank you!
