    Yea, the Famicom, while basically an NES, actually uses a slightly different Power Supply than we do here in the USA.  That original power supply is only rated for 100 volts.  American standard power outlets provide 120 Volts.  You'll fry the adapter and the Famicom if you try using that.  

    Power Supplies that will work with your Famicom are model 1 Genesis adapters.  I've even heard of some using a power supply from a Sega Master System.  So if you have any adapters that can power those then you could use those on that Famicom.  I'm jealous.  Nice Famicom!  I've been after one for years now.  Very nice.  Got any games for it?

    Yeah, I picked up a separate lot of 10 Famicom games for it that haven't arrived yet. 

    The picture on the listing shows two Dragon Quest games and what looks like Wizardry, among others.

    all power supplies have and INPUT voltage rating and an OUTPUT voltage rating

    can you post a clear pic of the power supply you have with this info ?


    This is what it came with. Looks like the original adapter.

    I was reading online and it said that a regular Sega Genesis Model 1 power adapter can be used instead, without having to purchase a step-down transformer thingy, so that may be what I'll do instead, since I'm too hesitant to use this adapter.


  3. This arrived in the mail today. I look forward to exploring the more unusual side of Nintendo once everything gets settled again. 

    A question: Is American voltage too high for the Famicom? Will I burn it out if I plug it into any outlet?

    Sorry for your loss.  I'd be upset as well.  You still have your life which is more valuable than any game or console is worth.  I know it may not seem the same but whatever you get can replace those and add new stories on top of old stories.  List here what systems you had.  I'll see what I can dig up.  I know its heartbreaking...but EVERYBODY needs a little Pac-Man and ET in their lives.  Not trying to be, what's the word, insensitive or anything but honestly, you can really only go up from here.

    Others are right.  Get with your insurance company, take whatever pictures you have of your collection for proof with you, and see what all is covered.  Once you start getting them again setup an account at RF Generation and start keeping track of your collection for insurance purposes.  It can be a pain to find the right title but keeping track like that is proof for insurance claims.  Then take pictures of what you get as you get them.  Some insurance companies will keep records of that stuff if you take them copies of the photos and a complete list.  Thats what i do just for Renters Insurance.

    Luckily enough, I do already have a RFGeneration list, so I do know exactly what I had, and what boxes and manuals I had.

    I have since decided I will continue to collect. 

    My first step will be heading to Gamestop to find out if their console insurance covers loss by fire. Hopefully I'll either be replacing my Wii U this weekend, or, at the very least, get money back for its loss.

    I'll put up a short list of my lost consoles here. 

    I'm sorry to say, @RickR, that I found the 2600 Jr. you gifted me today, and it was, of course, destroyed.

  6. I'm afraid, guys, that this'll probably be the end of my video game collecting. I can get new games and consoles, sure, but not a single one will recapture the stories and memories I had with the originals. They just can't.

    It was fun while it lasted.

  7. I guess we are, don't know.

    My stupid brother started a garbage fire, and now we've lost everything.

    It's my worst nightmare come true.

    I know I must be in shock, cause I'm all shaky. 

    Also can't quit thinking about my destroyed collection. 9 years in the making, destroyed in an hour.

  8. So, Dad and I were out in town running an errand, when we spotted a thrift store we'd never seen before. (I'm assuming it must be fairly new.)

    Went in, didn't find much at first. I was looking for video games, only found a couple PS2 titles, some old PC games, and one single PSP game. Also found a USB floppy disk drive from Sony, which I snapped up.

    Anyway, we were about to leave, and I'd brought everything to the counter, when I suddenly remembered I hadn't checked the toy section. I go over to the toy shelf, spotted FIVE Easy Bake Ovens (jeez), and was about to go back to the counter, when I looked down at the floor.

    There it was... A NINTENDO 64. I couldn't believe my eyes! I grabbed it up, ran to the two cashiers, who was ringing up my other stuff, and said, "This, too! I gotta have it!" The younger cashier and I talked about Goldeneye and Mario Kart.

    The N64 cost a grand total of $4, included the power brick, AND IT WORKS.

    Now I just need a controller.
