Tetris The Grandmaster III Terror Instinct USB Dongle

  1. Hi All

    My USB Dongle for Tetris The Grandmaster III has stopped working.

    Can/Will Taito repair my broken USB Dongle?

    Has anybody else's USB dongle been damaged? If so, how did you repair it?

    Are there any specialists out there who can repair them?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Very sorry but so far there are no solutions for this. This is the reason why people don't like the Type-X. The dongles have a limited life expectancy and generally stop working after some years.

    As far as I know TaitoTech do repairs on dongles for a fee but I haven't used their service personally.
  4. that is a shame
  5. When I bought my kit from Tops Game / Sophia Corp in 2014, I had trouble with the dongle when it arrived; it would boot for at most 1~2 minutes and then error out (if it'd even boot past the security check at all). When I returned the dongle, they said they would try their best to find me a new one or have the old one repaired by Taito. At that time, they said the quote they received from Taito for the repair costs was 14,620 yen. (Thankfully in this case they were able to locate and send a new dongle to replace the defective one.)

    According to this AO thread, you can contact ovs@taito.co.jp (the contact e-mail listed on the English page for the arcade division) if you're overseas and they can help liaise requests for repairs.
