    Positive feedback for MostroVeneno

    I bought a bare CPS-3 board (no SIMMS) from @MostroVeneno and it shipped fast from Argentina. The packaging was great and dealing with him was a pleasant experience!

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    So I recleaned the slots and reseated the simms. Hopefully they don't look crooked. As far as the output, it's the same grey screen every time. Sometimes it takes a couple of seconds before it shows up. How can I test the DS cart to check if it's dead or not?

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    Thanks @hatmoose I will do some more testing tonight based on your suggestions and see what happens. I did already buy the Ultra SIMMS. If the issue is with the mainboard, does that mean I likely have to buy another or is there a good chance it can get fixed?

    CPS3 Acrylic Case on Taobao

    I haven't opened my case since I'm working on checking if my CPS3 board works or if I need another. I was wondering if adding a 3D printed block to raise the dip bank would work. I haven't seen the finished case but I assume you should be able to raise the dip bank. Also, I haven't been on the...

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    So would now be a good idea to go buy the Ultra simms and check if I get video then if GoldenGlover is correct, I will buy another motherboard this one is truely dead?

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    So I took a q-tip soaked with IPA to every simm and cart socket. I still get a grey screen. I did power up the board with no DS cart and got a weird screen (image attached). I measured the board at 4.99 V as well. Here's a video of me powering the board on a picture of my whole setup.

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    Would buying the Ultra Simms and then testing the board be the best way going forward?

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    I don't have my motherboard with me so I'll provide a picture of my setup after the weekend. Sometimes I get artifacts on the left side of the screen and sometimes it's a plain grey screen. I don't have a SCSI cable or drive since I wanted a Ultra Simms setup. Are they needed to check if the...

    Grey Screen From CPS3 Motherboard

    I googled what a grey screen for the CPS3 means but I didn't get anything that looked like what I see from my board I bought from YAJ. I have a repro cart from Darksoft and I'm using the simms that came with the board. Can someone tell me if my CPS3 motherboard in the picture is dead or not? I...

    The Definitive Guide to Fixing Your CPS2 Multi Kit

    I looked but didn't see any damaged pins connecting the A and B boards. I also took the multi apart and used some 99% IPA to clean the pins on the multi. I did solder a backplane connector to the B board. Could a bad solder joint cause the garbled graphics?

    The Definitive Guide to Fixing Your CPS2 Multi Kit

    I have an issue where I try to start a game but after I get the All done: Have fun! message, the screen stays white. Does anyone know what could be the issue? I'm using a X-Men vs Street Fighter CPS2 that was working previously. I don't have another A or B board to test with. The testing romset...

    CPS2 multi question

    Update: I finally built up the courage to do this. I don't have a lot of experience with soldering but I have worked on some practice kits. Can anyone let me know how I did and critique my work?
