Hi All

OK so I was happily playing on DC using the GDRom Emu for half hour or so and then Controller Port 1 stopped working when switch it back on. I tried the twisting of the fuses/resisters on the controller board, same thing still not working. I also have a spare Jap machine (not compatible with the GDEmu) so I took the resisters off that and fitted them in, still no port 1. I then fitted the old resisters in the Jap machine to test and that worked (so resisters wasn't bad in the first place)


I am thing that there is something gone on the motherboard to do with controller inputs.


Any ideas guys as really wanna try out that GDEmu but I cant.


Thanks

B

have you tried using the controller board from the jap and putting that into your pal machine?

I hate suggesting such simple things as I do not like to insult people's intelligence, but you have tried another controller right?

I fixed it.

Believe it or not the connector for the fan was loose (the console doesn't even turn on of it not connected). I re-soldered the 3 points & job done.

Thanks all for your input.
