I have a CD32 that hangs during the opening animation. Music starts playing with the animation and after a few seconds it hangs. Music stops, sometimes the colors continue to cycle, sometimes not.

I have replaced the kickstart ROM as well as tried a different CDROM assembly to no effect.

Anyone have any idea what might be going wrong?

Check big electrolytic caps. They are fit with wrong orientation in most of cd32 and fail.

Is there a source for new CAPs?
