Have you tried seating one of them slightly different in the slots to see if a better contact might be needed, hard fully pushed in isn't always needed from ...

Re: SNK U4 - Screen crackles and dies (help!!)

I can take pics of the step down if you think it’s worth doing?? Nah, unless you have a multimeter to check it? I'm just suspicious whether you're grounding the cab when touching something... That’s also my suspicion. Was thinking the same sounds like a ground fault somewhere, I'm almost certain we...

Re: That silly Super Mario Bros. cart auction

Re: Andro Dunos II

I think it looks ok , nothing exceptional etc but alright , the only thing is it feels like this would fit into a "budget" exa range type release .ie a a bit of filler and not one that would command 1500+ maybe 800-900 if you get me . but what do i know ! :P

Re: WTB CPS2 A board Test/volume buttons

Your prints are so clean. If I didn't have such an utilitarian mindset I would look into why my prints look like crap. Also, what do you do to get them to stick to the surface? If you're saying nothing, I'm dumbfounded. :pointup: this ....very very clean looking prints and bed :fastlove: I've been ...
