Also great article Jason. It reminds me of the time a power surge fried my Nintendo and Super Nintendo and my dad and I trying to fix them.

The NES we were able to open up with a regular screwdriver, replace a couple standard tube fuses and it worked. The SNES on the other hand, required a special bit to unscrew the case (which we just drilled out) and after trying for days to find the correct fuses to replace, we discovered that the manufacturer discontinued them, and as you described, the only fix was to find another SNES to cannibalize. In the end we just put a screw across the terminals and that worked fine, at least until the second fatal power surge.
