Please forgive the question if it's been addressed previously, I have only gone through half of these pages. Does anyone know why the minicute repro will not boot the blue-elf or Pandoras box multi carts? I have tried both with and without the jamma adapter that reroutes a few of the inputs etc. All it does is the red light on the power supply goes on and off while it goes click, click , click. However it boots all my jamma pcb's no problem. Also my Egrett's and Neo 25's, boot the Blue Elf and Pandora's King of Air no problem, however my New Astro City cabinet does the same thing as the minicutes with the clicking and no booting. They are all wired jamma, what am I missing??? Thanks in advance.
This is the correct answer. The meanwell PSU in the cab was designed to only work if a specific load was on the 5v line. You’ll need a resistor between 5v and ground to add an artificial load large enough to get it to not chirp at power on.you have the meanwell PSU? It sounds like your game is not pulling enough current to load up an old revision of that meanwell.
Or you can get the latest version of the RT-125w PSU (the one that’s in it now) and take advantage of its re-design. It requires a much smaller amperage load than the one that came with the cab.
