Seibu Mobo and games not working

Post by Ali710 »

Both these motherboards and games worked for 5 minutes then I tried swapping games between then then both stopped working.

Did you switch the jumper and wait for the countdown timer? If you interrupt the countdown process I think it can brick.

Why would you try swapping the carts between motherboards when both were working fine? I'd certainly not recommend swapping SPI carts between mobos if you can avoid it. It's not like MVS. Have you swapped them back and they are not working on their mobos they originally had?

If so I suspect you didn't follow the cart swap procedure probably and have probably bricked both.
