I'm in the process of troubleshooting a spring break that isn't booting. I know the MPU is good as it worked on the bench just fine using marco's test rom, I've replaced the daughter board and made sure it's getting 5v in the game. Figured I'd check the rom to see if maybe it was bad since the window was covered with a white sticker rather than black electrical tape or something else that would sufficiently block light. However doing so is rather difficult since gottlieb roms are not available for download. I was able to find some checksums listed on a licensed resellers page but none of the checksums listed match mine. Mine is EC57. It also doesn't match any of the 3 freeplay roms I was able to find.
I'm currently erasing the chip to try one of the freeplay roms but does anyone know if the EC57 checksum is perhaps another version or was my rom image likely bad?
