Re: Whats in your cab(s) right now?

Hey Ya, all research and tons thread suggest needed -5v :) "The missing -5V was the problem! I had looked at that at one point but got thrown off because there was a wire running from pin 5 of the harness down towards the power supply. However, the owner before me had clipped it between those two po...

Re: Naomi 2 MB - Black Screen - No Boot

DO NOT run a NAOMI 1 or 2 above 5.15v or you risk frying those pesky tiny surface mount buffer chips. I hate those things! Hey Thanks, Ya I bought multimeter and I was running at 4.92v, so hoped that all it was, needed bit more voltage otherwise Naomi wont boot if under 5v. So as Naomi needs above ...

Re: Naomi 2 MB - Black Screen - No Boot

Hey Andy Thanks for the help, I will have a look again tonight and check all fans are running or not. 1 know at least one fan is working as I can hear it, its loud enough.

Re: Naomi 2 MB - Black Screen - No Boot

5.2 is the limit for Naomi, 5.1 should be plenty. If it's had a hit hard enough to break the legs, that's sounds pretty hard to me. The symptoms don't sound too promising I'm afraid. Ha Crap 150e shipped for Naomi2 and its dead as a dodo so by looks of things all thanks to the shipping, it be month...

Re: Naomi 2 MB - Black Screen - No Boot

Naomi 2s are well known for bad/unreliable soldering on the BGA chips, could be that's the problem, especially if it's been getting battered around. I had one exactly the same, Suzo quoted £300 for it to be repaired. I'd ask Craig at giz10p if he can do it (I'm sure he told me he could, he has the ...

Re: Naomi 31khtz Monitor to xbox 360

That's the correct one. The only difference between this cable and the "old" version is the black color and that it doesn't have the optical out slot, since the slim already have that built in. Just make sure you set it to 640x480 on another display so you don't accidently feed your arcade monitor ...
