What did I do wrong!?!? So frustrated!!! Installing a color dmd (LED) in Data East Star Wars. Here we go. Turn the game on and play a game before starting the install. Working 100% everything is fine. Turn the game off and follow the instructions (this is basic stuff guys!) and turn the game on. Hmmm. GI comes on but game is not booting. Very strange. The ColorDMD is working fine and i can go into the diagnostics on screen (colorDMD diagnostics not the game diagnostics) Flip on and off and on and still no boot. WTF? I remove the power adapter connector from the Rotten Dog power supply board and connect the 15pin power connector directly into the RD board to take the color dmd out of the equation to see what happens. Turn the game back on and POOF!!!! I hear what sounds like a coil lock on somewhere and gi flashes brightly and F5 on the RD power supply and F5 on the diver board blow up. Turn the machine off. Flip it back on partial gi is working, no boot, r2d2 diagnostic test appears to start and then poof the f6 on the driver board starts to glow and blows up.
Wow....can’t say I’ve ever experienced anything like this!!! Thoughts or ideas?!?
