Does this card work with the Coregrafx and Coregrafx2 consoles?

Awesome, thanks. Another question. I see many versions of TG-16 on eBay. I want to get a USA model and also work with the Turbo Everdrive v2 which model do you recommend?

You're welcome. I recommend not getting a TurboGrafx-16, and instead getting a CoreGrafx or CoreGrafx II, as they're a lot less expensive. If you want to be able to play CD games, I recommend getting a PC Engine Duo, Duo R, or Duo RX. If you get a Duo, be sure to get it recapped first. Keith Courage on the PCEngineFX forums sells refurbished consoles and provides good service. Regarding which version of the Turbo Everdrive, I have a v1, which suits my needs, but if you get a v2, I'd recommend getting the newest version, v2.5, though I don't have experience with it myself.

Here's some more information:

Finally got around to buying a Core Grafx from eBay yesterday, so now I look forward to playing with this.

Got my TED v2.5 today and all I get is a white screen. I think I got a dud unit :(

There is  a switch on the cart. Make sure it's set to PCE, not TG-16.

I tried the switch in both positions and both gave me a white screen still.

I've had a white screen on my Core Grafx before.  Make sure all of your connections are clean.  I had dirty contacts.  My TED works just fine.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

I just sent my TED back today for a replacement. I did try a couple HU cards and they all booted up fine. I did notice when I put the switch to TG16 it does nothing and a white screen, but when I switch it to PCE I can hear a brief static sound on the TV like it's trying to do something so I think the contacts are being made. When I get it back and still have problems I will take your advice but my questions are:

1. How do you take the core grafx apart to clean the contacts? Any websites showing how to disassemble?
2. Do you use alcohol to clean the contacts or what do you recommend?

Thanks.

Do you have another console to test it?
Use isopropyl alcohol (or something alike) to clean the contacts.

Unfortunately I don;t have another PCE or TG16 to test or anyone around here that does so I had to send it back. I have a 9V 650ma adapter which is the original adapter for the Core Grafx will that be enough power to use with the TED?

The standard power supply is ok.
After we receive your device we will see what was wrong.
