Title: Everdrive V3 not working anymore
Post by: Pigswipe on February 15, 2020, 07:19 AM
My Everdrive 64 V3 won't work on my N64, I have the switch on the inside set to NTSC and I also checked another cartridge, (Hey you, Pikachu!) and it worked just fine. I checked the inside and the NTSC-PAL switch did get rusted, but I don;t know if that would change much.

Rusted? How old is your everdrive? Check the board for damages.

What happens when you power it without an sd card?

Everything else seems to look fine, but I'm not exactly that good at hardware related things. Also i think its around 3 years old.

Its just the same as if i did with one in; it just shows a black screen, like if there wasnt even a cartridge in the n64

Any real damage to the Everdrive might render it useless. How did it become rusted? Can you post a photo of the damage so we can see what and how extensive is the damage? When was the last time it worked properly?

I think it got rusted because it was near the sd card slot, which exposed it to air. The last time i think it worked properly was about 6 months ago. Here are the images of the front, the back, and the part that i think looks rusted: https://imgur.com/a/iUMJOTq

Looks corroded. Hopefully it will be fixed by just replacing it.

Spray lots of ipa inside the switch and contacts and swab off the excess with a cotton bud. Move the switch back and forth a few times to clean where the cotton bud cannot get to. Wait for the ipa to evaporate and try it in the n64 again. If that doesnt work, you could always try replacing the switch, or put a direct wire where the switch should be for your console type...
