Saturn MK1 Switchless Region Free 50/60Hz

  • Saturn MK1 Switchless Region Free 50/60Hz

A grey NTSC-J Sega Saturn MK1 with a Switchless region and 50/60Hz.

These mods allow you to play original discs from every region and in either 50 or 60 Hz. You can control the region from the reset button, and the LED will indicate the function based on the following table:

button-push-time t in msec LED behaviour function LED behaviour after button-release
t < 250 no change normal reset none
250 < t < 1250 turn black 50/60Hz on-the-fly toggle (no reset!) retrace-indicate-flash
t > 1250 region-color As long as the button is pressed, the regions are cycled through (1sec each). After the button is released and the region-setting has changed, the Saturn will get reset so the new region-settings take effect. retrace-indicate-flash


For the 50/60Hz modes the LED feedback is:

Flashing Retrace Rate (Hz)
Slow flashing 50
Fast flashing 60


The console has been cleaned and fully tested. The Laser head has also been cleaned and calibrated, and the battery has been replaced with a new one.

The console comes with a power lead and necessary step-down converter as it only accepts 100-110v. No controllers or games are included.

All our consoles are previously used consoles, refurbished by us. They do NOT carry the manufacturer's warranty, but our own.
