    Cleaning inside a PSU

    I wouldn't let water touch the transformer, so if you go that route I'd recommend desoldering it first and resolder it once fully dry. Nowadays I'd leave it as is, maybe just recap with proper replacements. I'd clean with water + degreaser only if it's smelly.

    Sunset Riders - help

    As djsheep says get voltage down to 5-5.1V (measured at the JAMMA board). After checking removable EPROMS I'd try soldering JP jumper and see how it goes. This may give some clues on what's going on.

    Irken (MiSTer) JAMMA Expander

    It looks great. If it's compatible with the design I'd keep the TOSLink connector for those who want to use a custom DAC like the Topping E30. I'm curious about the video DAC, does it support full range?. I see potential in a simple and well done full range HDMI to VGA DAC boards too.

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    I had a problem with my System 16B multi but fortunately it seems to be 100% solved. I hope this helps to anyone having problems. After removing and reattaching the multi to the mainboard (taking extra care to avoid via damage due to bending and being connected to ground), vertical scrolls in...

    Switching forum software to XenForo

    Could you confirm conversations are deleted once all participants leave? This is how XenForo supposedly works by default, but I don't know if this is configurable. The 15 minutes edit time makes difficult to delete payment / shipment information after transactions.

    Help with jamma cab wiring.

    What AWG are those cables? I'd use at least two for +5V and GND, specially if the cables are longer than 10 inches or you are going to power relatively big boards. I'm currently using 3x for +5V and 3x for GND with success (18 AWG, 10" long).

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    @KaPH33n 1.85$ per chip and 0.10$ for programming (27C322): The 27C801 came from Aliexpress and I programmed it with the Minipro TL866A but I'm not sure what vendor I chose. Some time ago I got good EPROMS from QIAOMAER several times. buyicnow also have...

    Switching forum software to XenForo

    I've noticed some issues: The user deleted posts now appear. Links in posts are almost indistinguishable from normal text -- edit: this happens only in the editor. I find the post text a bit more difficult to read than before in light mode. This contrast checker tool is very useful for...

    Switching forum software to XenForo

    Good move, I ran XenForo during several years without issues. Now we can search inside a thread :) Nice to hear attachments are welcomed in the forum, some time ago I read Darksoft recommending to host them outside to save space. This is a problem when the image hosting service dies leaving the...

    MVS 4-slot issues

    If Diagbios doesn't throw any info I'd check continuity between BIOS and M68K. Sometimes broken traces are difficult to notice.
