Repair: Sega Genesis Model 2 – VA3 console

Status: Successfully repaired on 8/12/2020

I recently installed a Triple Bypass for my Genesis 2 VA3, and I thought it was good to go-it played carts fine. However I soon discovered that 32X, Virtua Racing and the Mega Everdrive Pro wouldn’t boot.

It turns out a connecting via for Pin B11 was rotted out. I drilled out the via and ran a small patch wire through it. That’s all that was needed to restore full functionality.
