Thanks to DaBears detailed post with pics I got this CPU 1983 (No revision) board 3 (little 3 close to P1 port) functioning with good picture quality. I searched and searched until I found the lowest serial number I could & purchased many others in the process. I browsed through hundreds of them before finding this one with a slick dust flap (instead of textured) & actually when I started the mod I didn't really know just how early it was & after reading on here I see it's possibly a recalled board. It did have components added on bottom which I thought someone had added but long story short see now Nintendo done it. It wasn't working when I got it the video was messed up with radio station picked up & after removing the bottom components game image would not come up at all but radio station picked up really good. Lucky someone on here had the same components shown on a earlier board and I put my components at the spots they were and it worked to my surprise. I also added a NES controller connector internally so I have a few extra feet of cord. Pic links.

I thought of trying to bring the white back and even thought of spray painting the top white but then figured I would rather just allow it to show it's age I'm kind of fond of it not trying to hide it's age.  Grin

Awesome. I've always been fond of the square button Famicoms! Everyone else I know prefers the later revisions though. Upset Rolleyes
