So I bought an Arena last week that has worked just fine. It had the ground mods done already and has no acid damage. Well last night, just for bulletproofing sake I reflowed the power supply headers and cleaned the power supply pot (I normally replace, but don't have one on hand). I then adjusted the voltage the correct way....got a solid 5.01 with the cpu plugged in....BUT.....I NOW have no background sound/music (I have target sounds though), I have no led on the sound board, and Ydrom2 gets too hot to touch within about 15 seconds of power up! I checked all the voltages on the sound board connector against the manual and they are perfect. Also rechecked my power supply work and voltages and they are perfect. I have no idea how this happened, I didn't touch a single other thing. I've done this power supply reflow on a dozen other premier games in the past with no issues. Unfortunately I don't have another game to test this against at the moment. I do get a beep if I press the upper test button, but nothing from pressing the lower test button. And no led at all ever. Any thoughts?
