External Power Supplies:
Internal Power Supplies:
Power supply from a 99/4 (NOTE: NOT COMPATIBLE WITH 4/A)
Power supply from a 99/4A
Power supply from a 99/4A QI
The power supply is a very standard setup, and could be replaced by any standard PC power supply.
The DC voltages out are:
Pin 1 = -5 volt
Pin 2 = +12 volt
Pin 3 = GND
Pin 4 = +5 volt.
No AC Voltage? check the fuse!
TI was required by the UL to add a fuse to the external power supply. Their solution? add a pigtail to the power cord with the fuse in a little plastic box.
These fuses tend to blow after so many years of use, so the fuse needs to be replaced or just remove the pigtail if you are using a power strip with built in circuit breaker making the fuse unnecessary. You will find it’s just stuck on the old plug with some adhesive and it should come apart with some effort.
Fuse type: 4/10A 250V

Here is an interesting project replacing the console power supplies with a new board:
