Battle Garegga graphical fault

Post by markedkiller78 »

My pcb has had this fault for years now. Everything else, to the best of my knowledge, is fine.

On a blank / black screen, the text bleeds to the top of the screen. It’s only visible on level transitions and, boot and rizing splash screen.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Voltages are fine, tested on multiple monitors too. It’s more obvious on some, but it’s always there.

For prosperity, sent the board to vectorglow who did a beautiful repair and cleaned up the **** one that was attempted before. Failing logic chip was the fault.

That's a relief. Any PCB that needs work is a bad enough, but a Garegga PCB playing up is on another level.

Thank Christ (Vectorglow) it was fixed!
