Do Gamecubes (DOL-001) without Digital AV exist?

Post by lucas » Fri Apr 06, 2018 11:28 pm

I just bought a Gamecube (DOL-001) and it doesn't have the Digital AV out.

Is that common? Because I read all over the internet that all DOL-001 models had digital AV. Have I just discovered a new revision?

Thank you very much

I would guess it's probably newer model in a DOL-001 shell that someone replaced.

Hmmm, quite weird. It may be a repaired/opened unit with a dol 001 outer (lower) casing with dol 101 backplate and innards.
If the casing has a hole for the serial port 2, but no actual connector from the motherboard that may very well be the case and thus being a gamecube that has been disassembled at some point in time. The gamecube nameplate should be removable (if it is a dolphin 001 case originally belonging to the lower half case, that is) further evidencing the above is likely true.

The opposite is not possible I believe; dol 001 innards and dol 101 casing due to the serial port 2 on the motherboard but no hole in the casing.
Dream mod: RAM expansion for serial port 2 with wifi, bluetooth and usb port :shock:
Favourite mod: Wasp fusion autoboot with flashed swiss. :D
Eagerly awaiting a normal, form-factor wise, wireless controller with rumble. :)

I purchased some broken GC years back, seen one with dremel (rotary tool) cuts, and one with the serial port 2 snapped off.

It's definitely a case swap, the rear panel color is supposed to match the rest of the console.

I'm not saying this statement is wrong, DOL-001 had matching rear panel color (at least the common colors ones). But I don't recall seeing a platinum(silver) or indigo(purple) rear panel color on the DOL-101 models. I've seen a bunch of black panel on platinum dol-101 that i believe are official. I also recall seeing black panel on indigo dol-101, but i can't recall if they seemed official, did indigo dol-101 even exist? I don't recall seeing the sticker jewel on indigo cubes before.
