Dreamcast randomly shutting off!

Post#1 » Sat Jul 21, 2018 4:41 pm

I recently got a NTSC model 1 Dreamcast and I live in a PAL region, so I got a step down converter
it says 120 volts on the back but I got a 110 Volt one yes at 60 hz
would there be any work around to this?

Edit: the Dreamcast also flat out refuses to turn on with a disc inserted

and my PSU Pins need to be cleaned

110 or 120 shouldn't make a difference, your psu prolly needs cleaning
