I received final confirmation that I will be in the next book for Guinness World Records later this year! Here is an article and one video. 


The GWR article:

The snapchat video:

It works in a browser, but it is bit choppy. In SnapChat it flows beautifully.

Thanks Everyone. I'm so excited.
Guinness World Records posted one more video this morning. If you like it, please don't forget to share it. Can't wait for the book to be published later this year.

That is an incredible collection !

It's awesome how many systems you own, and furthermore most are boxed and in excellent condition.

You said that you became an Electronic engineer in a result to your passion and due to repairing on your own
very first electronic game you received when you were a kid.

Maybe you can provide us some wisdom on how to repair and maintain some specific systems ?

Eric, vintage systems for sure.  The circuitry is simple and it’s usually about making sure you get the correct voltage at the battery terminals.  I’m sure you are aware the that first step is making sure the battery terminal are clean and replacing them if necessary.  A solder gun is a must for cracked, broken or cold solder joints. When games partially work I always look for cold solder joints.
For me Resistors are the easiest components to determine if they are not working properly, so I usually start there.  If you actually have schematics its so much easier.  I also cheat and try to find the same game in working condition to I take measurements across each component and compare values. 
If it has an old chip you may be out of luck, except if it has Texas Instrument’s components because we have been manufacturing chips for decades and I usually find old schematics or drop in replacements.  I’ve provided old Texas Instruments schematics to people in other gaming forums.  I had to use our internal TI network to find an engineer who actually worked on the chip, but it was great to help.  Anything I can do to help just ask.


The newer stuff you are on your own.  The scale and complexity is ridiculous.  However, if it has a TI chip I may be able to find a contact to help you.  :blush:
