Got this as a project. I don't know anything about Capcom but looking over the manual and the game it looks nicely organized in some respects, odd in some others. The game powers on in that the backbox light turns on, all of the fuse LED indicators turn on and the status LEDs on the CPU board (two of them) and on the soundboard (two of them) all turn on. There is 5v at the power connectors on the CPU board and on the control board. No playfield lights, no display, no sounds.
Took out CPU board, no visible damage or blown anything. Looking at the control board I don't see any issues either.
What I would love to know is how to diag the display. Or better yet, what should I expect from the game based on what is wrong. Assuming the power board is ok (I replaced it with another, looks good) then it would likely either be the CPU or Display, no? I assume if the CPU and display are both working then I'd get something on the display. Would I also get GI or does that require the control board to work? If the game made some sounds, had some playfield lights I'd know it's DMD almost 100% (or display driver board) but without any of those indicators I hate to blindly by parts.
Any help on what to look for as indicators?
