Installed the deadworld mod then put the new rom in -
turned it on and all sorts blew - definitely a few fuses
no screen - just bad noise madness.

The chip seemed to go in very easily and tightly.
Does it need to go in backwards? Seems unlikely,
i don't want to mess with it now.

i've put the old rom back in now and it seems to be ok
'cept blown fuses so no solenoids or maybe worse.
i will check tomorrow.

Is this at all normal? What might cause this?

So yeah - i tried the new ROM chip yesterday
and it blew the same fuse both time - solenoid 7A
but it's clearly not the only problem as there's garbage on the dmd.

Replaced the ROM with L6 and new fuse - playing fine.

Is it common for ROMs to be faulty? If so - i'll try another.

No, not common. Sounds like you obviously have a problem with the new rom. You should be able to purchase a new one or maybe the place you bought it from will send you another. Good luck!

Are you sure you installed the ROM correctly? You have to go by the notch on the chip and not the label.

All you have to do is install it the wrong way one time, power it on and it is toast. Even if you install it correctly after that you'll get nothing since one or more cells in the ROM will be damaged.
