Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

So, the original A board actually works fine, with the exception of your test and volume buttons on the board not working?

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

I've looked through this thread and see the supercap mentioned, however other system and game settings are being retained just fine so the supercap must be okay, the EEPROM in that case should also be fine. The supercap is part of the audio circuitry only, has no effect on other settings. Your prob...

Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World featuring Aero City

I dl'ed the Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World, on Xbox 360, a couple months ago when it was a "Free for Gold" download. Hadn't fired it up yet. Just got around to it today, while sipping a few beers. Lo and behold, the first thing you're greeted to when launching into the game is a game select ...

Re: Interesting Partially Working Final Fight (US 900613)

Would it not be possible to put the b-21 on battery, then program it like you would a suicided c board? Any way to easily determine if b-05 is identical to one of the suicide games?

Re: SF2:CE board, pic acting up

Have you measured voltage on the board yet? Measure at the C board, one of the chips toward the center of the board (like a mask or program rom). You should be at 5.0V. It could be something shorting to/from that input line. Follow it from the JAMMA connector to where it goes on the board, and see i...

Re: cps2 Screen does not appear

Uhh...how many boards you got there? :awe: Nice job on the fix! :thumbupright: :) :thumbup: https://klovimg.com/images/2018/10/22/Untitled.png Asure, if touching the DL-1927 corrects the problem, then it's likely cold solder joints at that chip. Try reflowing that chip first, as that may be all that...

CPS-B-21 in battery backup mode is a joker because it can be programmed to work as any of the other B chips. :awe: Okay leonardo, I tried to find the answers on my own, so I didn't have to ask you for the answer all the time, but am unable to connect the dots. Is it possible to program this CPS-B-2...

Possibly not the same cab, but if it is, the measurements of that latching part are all here:

Can you please photo the inside of your main door lock, and the tongs(?) inside you control panel, that are used to hold the control panel down? That'd be excellent.
I will get some pics tonight. Can't hurt to have more points of reference, right?

Re: Aero city nanao ms8 chassis

Great news! Always nice when it's an easy fix. 8-) And for the record, security is a top notch seller. Always provides nichicon 105C caps, and the MS8 kits are not a reflection on him as a seller. In fact, I bought a kit from him for my Aero City MS8-26, and he was very involved in the thread I had ...

Re: Aero city nanao ms8 chassis

Who was the seller? A lot of those ebay kits are junk. Also, did you verify all the going in against the caps coming out? There are many variations of the ms8 26, and it is very likely that one or more of the caps may not have been correct for your particular version. Lastly, did you double and trip...

I didn't see that one. That is certainly interesting, as well. And I think you're right on some/all of the scenarios.

Re: cps2 repair method of correct voltage number

Good info, leonardo, and now those diodes make a little more sense to me. :) d1 is for battery supply. If you measure it, it will measure something slightly less than what measures at the battery, under normal (not externally powered) conditions. The diode will measure around 3.35v iirc, and that wi...

Re: Interesting Partially Working Final Fight (US 900613)

What throws me for a loop is the "DL" number on the C chip is that of CPS-B-05, and running it with the CPS-B-05 C board from SF2WW rev D, it runs perfectly. ^Good info, thought, this connects a few more dots from the info I found spread across multiple web pages/sites. I did some more research, and...

Re: cps2 repair method of correct voltage number

I fixed a friends board that had a faulty diode at d1. The battery would appear low at installation - around 3.2 like you report. Within a week the battery would be dead. Replaced d1, no problem since. May or may not be your problem but if you have a board with no problems that you can borrow d1 fro...

Interesting Partially Working Final Fight (US 900613)
