Dreamcast PSU 6 pin molex replacement

Post#1 » Mon May 13, 2019 3:22 am

Hello,

i want to replace the 6 pin molex (I'm not sure thats the right term for it though) that is on the PSU board, with a brand new one since it's kind of messed up.

The PSU board itself is new, I bought is some years ago and it was new and unused but the connector that the PSU board connects to the Dreamcast's main board is a bit messy which makes the connection with the main DC board unreliable (resets).

Can someone shed some light as to what is the type of this plastic connector/molex so I can buy some?

Thanx

Here you go: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/ ... -ND/863357

Postage costs a fortune though!

I've only found it on mouser and digikey, both want to charge crazy postage (UK). Let me know if you find somewhere cheaper!
