    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    We appear to have experienced exactly the same problem. Ill do more continuity testing. My Shinobi looks the same as yours did, before you fixed yours.

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    Should I reflow all the ROM DIP sockets ? I don't know how I could have lost a trace between two of the DIP sockets. Some of the games now work, but most of them still have graphical glitches.

    Help with arcade PCB question

    @robbo007 you will definitely want to set "V (DC)" on your multimeter, *not* AC. > 14.x volts on pins 3-6. Switch to DC and see what you get. The jamma pins diagram shown just above shows what voltages to expect on those pins. goodluck!

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    ok. checked all between 7 and 13 (as you said trying 7,8 then 8,9 etc) pin 23 between chips 7 & 8 was not connected. I used a small kynar wire to connect them on the bottom side of the multi PCB. now some games look perfect. eg Golden Axe looks great, but Shinobi is the same. there are still a...

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    @Apocalypse do you mean continuity between the legs of the chips and their sockets ? You think there may be some legs which do not have a good connection with their sockets ? If that's the case, I can check that, sure. Before replacing all the ROM's with NOS ones, I cleaned every ROM socket with...

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    @Apocalypse all the "Q" pins on chip 8,9,10 were all high. The next leg up on all, legs 13 and 31, were low. (the probe seemed to be working fine)

    What CRT do you prefer for retro console gaming?

    My JVC 19" TM-H195OC is my fav - with its fat scanlines. Close second is a 14" PVM 14M4 - super crisp sharp picture. Preferred over my small army of PVM's and even the Toshiba NNC monitor in my Astro City. Can't really explain it, it just looks the best to me :)

    WTB: caveman ninja - dataeast

    Thanks @Derick2k I already made that seller some offers but he won't take them. If I knew that person's business name I could contact him off eBay and make an offer and maybe we could reach an agreement. He's asking a lot for the game! I might need to wait for another on eBay.

    My CPS2 board has issues. Should I still install the kit?

    I bought a SSF2X B board from Jap and it seemed great. Then, after some-time (5seconds to 50mins) it will get graphics corruption and end up freezing. I battled with it a lot and even tried a known-working multi board in it, also tried known-working roms/etc from a working B board (changed the...

    FS: Naomi / (New) Net City / Blast City Parts, Sanwa, Seimitsu, Korean parts, Sega Amp, Random stuff

    I would love to grab one of those mounting plates, but I assume posting to Sydney would be expensive.. any chance it could slip into an envelope and be sent with a stamp ? probably too heavy :(

    Rockman 2 The Power Fighters

    The first thing you may want to do (after staring at all that sexy hardware in awe) is get an Infinikey which will allow you to remove the battery from the board. The battery, at any time, may leak and have a disastrous effect. Your PCB looks great ! All the best

    Neo-Geo controller adapters

    my MD2NEO (rev 1.6) stopped working :S any chance anyone has a hex dump of the Atmega IC on these ? I could install a socket and re-write a new IC to see if I can fix it. I used it all the time :drowning:
