Unboxing Huge Video Game Console Lot from eBay

I took a chance on this untested video game console lot from eBay that included some of my childhood consoles as well as some newer ones from later years, with the hopes of gradually repairing and restoring the ones that need it.

    The NES and can run off DC any polarity of 8-12V 1 amp is fine. The NES has a bridge rectifier installed internally instead of relying on one being in the ac adapter. If you feed a already rectified DC voltage into the another rectifier all it’s going to do is just flow through one side of the second rectifier essentially bypassing it which won’t hurt anything. You can’t however run anything that is listed for DC with a AC adapter.
