    PRO-POW3 PSU Non-Genny Replacement

    Anyone have a link to a good tested PRO-POW3 replacement that puts out clean power and has no screen interference?

    I'd like to avoid buying another Model 1 Genesis PSU that ends up being on its last legs.

    Thanks for any recommendations!

    Did you try replacing the filter capacitor on those bricks? I opened up three of mine and 2 of them were cheap no name brand capacitors that were leaking.

    also I've had good luck replacing an AV Famicom PSU with one recommended by HD Retrovision, PWR+. A nice benefit of it is you can use different adapters for one power supply to extend console support. Makes for a good test bench/console testers. If you scroll down on the site below you'll see what adapters you need.

    Only thing I don't like about it is the neon blue light on it.

    Xian Xi would probably know a good recommendation as well.

    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air

    Nope I haven't tried servicing the bad Genny one, but I guess it night be worth a shot if there's not a decent Chinese replacement.

    If its a genesis model 1 power supply the capacitor should be 3300 μF 16V. You can go higher voltage but may have trouble fitting it due to clearance issues.

    I grabbed a few 105C ones to replace all my ac bricks since they are 25+ years old. Only one I haven't done is SNES adapter since I need to make a tool to open it.

    Would recommend a PSU from Retro Game Supply:

    Message them for an US plug.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I popped on a couple potential replacements via DigiKey. I'll report back here with the results once I have them.

    This Triad Magnetics WSU090-3500-R13 is working great as a PRO-POW3 AES PSU replacement so far:

    Edit: PRO-POW3 (NEO-POW3) is 2.1mm center pin barrel. You need a "-R" designation Triad, not "-R13".
