MY TURBO SYSTEM WONT PLAY HuCARDS! WHEN I SLIP IN THE HuCARD
AND POWER UP THE SYSTEM, THE SCREEN DISPLAYS PASTEL COLORS
AND THE GAME WILL NOT BOOT! WHAT IS WRONG AND WHAT DO I DO?
Chances are if this is occuring you have not played that particular
HuCard for some time. Don't panic just yet, this is probably
going to be a quick fix. The most likely cause for this failure
is not with the Turbo system but with the HuCard its self.
After a while, when the game has not been played for quite
some time, carbon will build up on the HuCard contacts towards
the tip where the card slides into the system. Look closely
at these contacts. If they seem to have browned a little bit
and seem rather tarnished, chances are build-up has occured,
which prevents the HuCard from making a good connection with
the Turbo system, making the game impossible to play. The
best way to fix this is to get a pencil with a good eraser
on it and rub the eraser carefully along the HuCard contacts
for a minute or two, and then wiping away the eraser debris.
This will work away the build-up without damaging or abraising
the contacts any further. Try this out and try again to boot
up the game. You may have to do this a few times to get a
good connection. You can prevent this problem in the future
by keeping your TurboGrafx HuCards in a dry, dust-free environment
away from direct sunlight, heat, moisture and other abrasive
elements. Doing this will assure a long life of great play
value for your collection.
