The Digital A/V Output port was removed from systems produced after May, 2004 (these systems will have a model number of DOL-101). If you have a Nintendo GameCube without this port, and you wish to play your games in progressive scan, please call our Consumer Service department at 1-800-255-3700, to discuss available options.

Well, fuck. I manage to buy the only game console with no component out.

I think I read back when this happened that they keep an inventory of the old shipments of the consoles (like I have) with component outs and they'll swap for you. I dunno if they make you pay shipping, though. They probably do.

Out of curiosity, did you pursue this? If so, what came of it? I need to get mine fixed up too.

Nah. Once I got it hooked up, I decided that S-video was good enough. I might still try and get it replaced when my vacation is over, since I don't want to send my Cube away right now.
