Saba videoplay MOD


Recommended Posts



I recently bought an old saba videoplay console (equivalent to a fairchild channel I think).
As I no longer have an antenna socket, I decided to make a composite video card to connect and test this console.

On the web, I found the following electronic diagram.


Looking for the right components, I understood that SMD components are used, but they are too small and not suitable for simple mounting on a test mounting plate.
So I would like to know what to replace them with.


For the resistors and the capacitors, I think it's not complicated, but for the 3 transistors as well as the diode D1, I don't know what to choose.


Could someone please let me know?

Thank you very much for your answer.

It helped me.

After researching DigiKey and other sites, it would appear that the equivalent transistors are the BC549B for the BC848B and the BC559B for the BC858B.
For the diode, I have some in reserve of this model.
