Dont mean to double post but not sure if I will get traction if I post in the wrong area.

Stuck with a blinky screen. Cant select games etc..

I see others have had issues, any one have luck fixing it?

1) Got the 3 blink light on the cart after I reinstalled things -> thinking this would have fixed it
2) Also checked if contacts are good, bent pins -> nope all set
3) Was it working before? yes -? only a couple weeks old

Thanks

Best is to contact Steve directly, by mail, facebook.
Don't worry, he sort it out, just be patience.

Yes, that is the correct email.

Here is a backup I uploaded from a friend:

Perhaps that works too.

Fixed.

It was a pair of bad 74541 chips.
I also installed a Rutgers anti static pcb on the mono
And it’s up and running

So for anyone who thinks it might be stuck and the ini file doesn’t fix it, perhaps you had a static discharge and the db9 ports are borked.

Attaching the ICs that may be a your issue.
Consoles5 sells replacement chips and sockets plus the Rutgers pcb
