You can replace the whole chip but on the other hand these are getting old and it might not last that long for all the effort. Personally I'm an advocate of the shave/solder approach, just be careful and read all the information available on-line really carefully! This provides a long term solution ...

Incredible find, especially boxed! The LG does have integrated controls, the first pad pictured should work fine the second one I can not gurantee would work with your LG. It has problems with latter CD-i units! Also the third joypad button is simply a combination of buttons 1 and 2 so you have the ...

Probably right! I'll have to get the laser working then fill up the memory and see :D

CD-i 490 in disguise!

Just picked up a knackered 470 to have a poke around. Once I opened it up I found a Digital Video Cartridge installed which was only supposed to be found in the more advanced 490 model! Everything points to this player being labelled a 470 so what gives? Just curious if others have experienced this ...

All those games are pretty common except The Last Bounty Hunter which is fairly desirable and can sell for more than your average CD-i game. Mad Dog 2 less so but it can still command a good price.

No slip case for Zelda's Adventure as it wasn't officially launched in America! Only games released in the USA (had a US catalogue number) came complete with slip case.

I just happen to have worked for the company that created "Zelda's Adventure" for Philips. The game was supposed to have been released in November '93, but ...
