Re: Is this really a black screen of death? [Revived from black screen of death]

They came from another NTSC-J console and from a PAL console one but I don't remember the exact revisions. The friend who gave me the motherboards said that those 2 died due to voltage problems. The last one I used I don't know why it was dead but a lot of signals were grounded (not by hand). Fortun...

Re: Is this really a black screen of death? [Revived from black screen of death]

From my understanding it has the same pinout between revisions, so you can swap between different ones.
The broken motherboard with the working ARAM was a DOL-CPU-05 and the repaired one a DOL-CPU-02 both NTSC-J

Re: Is this really a black screen of death?

Unfortunately when you get junk motherboards for free you don't know which part are usable for Shure :mrgreen: Of course, this is the last ARAM I've used (the working one): http://imgur.com/gallery/BsEmySz I don't think that a picture of the broken ones can be helpful but if needed I'll edit my post...

Re: Is this really a black screen of death?

I'm reviving this old post just to say that I came across to another broken Japanese gcn (it doesn't poweron at all even with a working powerboats). I've desoldered the ARAM of this one and installed in the first one that didn't red games and now it's working again (don't know for how many days/moth...

Re: Is this really a black screen of death?

Little update after a lot of time, I've found 2 broken motherboard from a friend and tried to use both ARAM on this GCN but same behaviour as before. Maybe is not the ARAM?

Re: Is this really a black screen of death?

It's certainly not a loss of video unfortunately since I used the same setup as my main gamecube (that is a jap model too). I send the audio directly to my hi-fi, so if it was a not supported video signal the audio should work anyway. When I get a black screen I don't lose the sync it's just a solid...

Is this really a black screen of death? [Revived from black screen of death]

Hello, Recently I went to Japan, and I've found a pretty cheap untested Gamecube (console + 2 original controllers for 980 yen). Today I powered up the console and it showed a strange behaviour: -it boots fine and it works with composite, rgb, but with component I had some weird colour when in swiss...

Re: Does mega drive v4 need the megawire mod?

ok, I will check thank you, I'm sure that audio streaming muting was "off".
By the way in theory it may may work as I understood, is not an hw limitation! thank you!

I've got another question for Megalomaniac:
I've ordered a xenogc, is it dangerous to solder it under the wasp? The megadrive v4 has the wasp exactly in the xenogc's spot. Do I need to make the xenofusion mod or it will work even without?

Does mega drive v4 need the megawire mod?

Hello, I'm a proud owner of a megadrive v4 made by the great megalomaniac. Now I'd like to play at some titles that have audio streaming. I know that I can't play them through the SD card, but if I boot one of them from the DVD the audio streaming is still not played.. Do I need to solder the wire i...

Re: Dreamcast

The psio team said that Dreamcast is the next on their roadmap. But I think they will took a lot of time before releasing something to sell.. This is what one of the developer said: "The PlayStation 1, Dreamcast, SEGA Saturn, 3DO, PC-FX, Atari Jaguar CD, CDi, Sega-CD and Amiga CD32 are on our minds....

Re: Wasp and rgb problem

Thank you for your answer! I hope that someone could explain me how to fix this. Does an unmodded component cable used with the regular composit cable can solve this issue?
