Title: 50 pin edge connector with long legs
Post by: protek on 15:14, 29 July 14
I have a slightly damaged cartridge connector in my SVI-728.

I've desoldered the old connector but the replacement that I have has significantly shorter legs than the original.

Anyone know a place to source a suitable replacement or a way to fabricate a riser?

I probly have one you can have. How long do you need the legs? As the pictures do not load on my phone.

The legs need to be 12 mm, so rather long ones.

It depends on the height of the plastic too. The height you need to check is from the top surface of the connector to the bottom of the pins.

Will this do?


The Legs are 13mm


It looks a bit battered, it was a sod to desolder! but all pins are intact and contact is good.


PM me your address and I'll get it in the post.

Thanks to generosity of GraigsBar, the 728 has now a new module port and games are working perfectly.  :D
