Hanimex 2650/Arcadia 2001/Leonardo – Repair & Composite Mod

Hanimex 2650/Arcadia 2001/GIG Leonardo (loose) Repair & Composite Video Output

Hanimex 2650/Arcadia 2001/GIG Leonardo (loose) Repair & Composite Video Output.

I start to say that this motherboard was not in repair but in one box of  spare parts. I have only the motherboard of this console, no external case, joystick, power supply … totally useless.

Past and present defects:

  • Some time ago the two EMF coils are exploded (see the photo) maybe the capacitor was in short circuit after the two coils
  • Also a capacitors near the coils is disappeared.
  • Black and White video output.

Repair and Video Composite modding:

  • I have bypassed the two coils for the 12v DC.
  • Removed the RF modulator.
  • I have cutted 3 resistors for the video composite output, you can get a better image (contrast and color) (see photo)
  • Replaced a 4066 because are missing two outputs of the R-G-B signal and that’s why the image was in black and white.
  • Added a temporary push button for the RESET.
  • The console without the RF modulator can be powered at 9v DC and not 12v DC, thus avoiding boiling the poor 7805.
