Hello all. I'm unsure where to go next. I have a Black Rose that was giving me resets. I've had the 5v repaired on the board (New BR, cap and regulator)and J115 re-pinned as the connector was burnt. Since resets continued I ordered Kahr's little guy to hopefully eliminate them. I fired up with his board and had two resets within a minute of starting a game. Before installing I could go maybe 30 min between resets and with GI connector J115 removed I could play with no resets. Removed daughterboard and was going to disconnect GI output connectors one by one to try and narrow it down. Found J120 had a couple wires not fully in that I had moved before. Cut off the ends and used my new .156 tool I didn't have before to seat them. Played for a while that way and had 3 resets within about an hour. Stayed aware and noticed each reset occurred when a certain standup bank was hit. (It's middle standups - green) Put daughterboard back in and played a full game 10min without a reset and green stayed lit on the daughterboard showing 5v stayed ok. No time to play for a longer period yet but confused as to why I had quick resets with daughterboard before fixing punched down wires on J120 (Using same 12v at some point?) and why a bank of targets would cause a reset or is it a coincidence? Also of note, the wire I moved was when I got the machine the brown that is pin 1 on J120 was punched down at pin5 which green uses at J121 so I moved it back to pin1. So I get resets with GI connected and middle standups hit. Not everytime they are hit but they seem to be last thing before a reset. Wondering if what I've noted here has come up before and someone can give some advice. Been through the pinwiki but get a little lost sometimes when I don't find steps that match what I'm experiencing. I'm still new at the troubleshooting/repair side of things. Thanks
