I recently had to repair a Power Supply on LW3, and basically rebuilt the entire DMD section... All zeners, transistors, and even a few resistors that seemed out of spec, etc... Once installed, I added different connectors one at a time and continued to power on the game, EVERY step worked until the last one which was adding CN5, the connection to the DMD.
Now turning on the game, the GI lights come on, and then nothing... game is basically frozen...
When I keep CN5 unplugged, it boots and plays perfectly. Just no display of course.
Checking the voltages at CN5, the +5 and +12 are good, but the voltages for the DMD are way off, like +10, -10, I think a zero even or something else small...
My question is, COULD this be the C10 and C11 caps? Probably 2 of the only things I didn't replace when I think about it... but would that be enough to make the voltages that weird AND my bigger question: Why would that prevent the game from BOOTING? Wouldn't it still boot but just have a blank display?
If anyone has come across something like this, or has an idea of what would prevent the game from booting once the display is connected, any input would be welcome... !!
Thanks in advance!
