Maybe I have one
Exactly the same pin that broke on mine. If you know how to solder you can replace it yourself or you can talk tp @Mitsurugi-w and see if he can replace it for you.literally so sad, not very technical so was taking a stab at it since my alpha 3 board looked like it was revision 7 and g pal and could just snap in place.
The entire pin has to be removed and replaced. Shoot a pm to @Mitsurugi-w, he can assist you with replacing the pin. You will just have to send the board to him.I'm useless and can't solder. Do I need to have the pin soldered back on or can something else be soldered to make the connection? @DarthMig
tip #1, post some pics of your install if you can, that will help tremendouslyHi All, i finally got around to installing my kit and i just get a blank screen when i try to boot i have a few questions and i'll try to put as much info as i can
I have a 93646B-6 board, it had a D-pal chip in it, i noticed a chip the same size came with the darksoft kit - is that a G-pal chip? I put that in place of my old chip.
I used a multi meter while doing my jumpers to make sure i have them as SOOS SO OSOSOS SOSOSOSO SOSOSOSO from the pdf file
Then i followed the wiring instruction for the 4 wires for the key writing.
Then since it wasn't working i removed the battery and shorted EXC5 (i heard that it works with battery now so wasnt sure if that was needed)
When i give it a try i can select a game and it writes it, says writing key, then i see it reboots (screen flash then says "now playing" on LCD) but still just a black screen. Any tips on where to start troubleshooting?
Backwards indeedActually. I've just noticed you have it wired up wrong.
On rev 6 you should have
Pin 2 of CN9 (Pink) going to Data which is where your Red wire is now
Pin 3 of CN9 (Blue) should go to Setup1 on multi where your Purple wire is now
Pin 4 of CN9 (Purple) should go to Clock on multi which is where your Blue wire is now
Pin 5 of CN9 (Red) should go to Setup2 where your pink wire is connected currently
If I had to hazard a guess I'd say you put the wires in the connector backwards
