I was switching out my CPS2 A boards (Marvel Super Heroes for ST) and after the switch there is no longer a picture (no matter the board installed) and the B board fan doesn’t come on. The ST board is phoenixed so its shouldn’t be a double suicide battery problem. Also I was playing Marvel Super Heroes earlier in the day.
Is it possible that my B board has gone bad? The fan used to come on even when the A board wasn’t set properly (which happened from time to time).
The screen still receives power (the screen shows a distorted, off center static), and all the lights come on (marquee etc). I don’t think it would be a power supply issue…
I can get pics of the screen while on if need be. I did a wire trace back to the power supply and screen, but I didn’t see any obvious issues.
It is pretty dirty in there. Maybe the dirt is an issue?
I change my A board only once every couple of months.
I don’t know what I’m gonna do without my machine. I use it pretty much every day :sad: I can’t really afford to buy any parts right now (especially with mvc3 on its way), but if I have to I will eat ramen…
Any other info that would be helpful for a diagnosis let me know! I’m probably going to try to do some more hardcore wire tracing and cleaning tomorrow.
