    Genesis Color issue

    Hey all,

    My personal J-Genny has some color issues..

    Here's a normal picture:



    Here's mine:



    Again, here's a NORMAL one:



    And here's mine:



    I've tried pulling the video from the 315-5313 as well as the normal location:



    One day it was working, then it wasn't.. it's possible that one of the resistors needs to be replaced..

    any help would be appreciated.

    Is there anything on the RGB lines inline?

    Here's the pic from the schematics:



    The pic above shows that it is soldered to the non VCC side of the RGB lines (with the arrows ).

    I'll have to rewire a jamma edge to it to check it out since it's been some time since I checked it out. I checked out each color individually and they all display so it's not like a color is dead.

    If the levels are all even then it would be the sync.

    It looks like your R line is hotter than the other two. Is this a JAMMAfied Genesis? If so, have you checked to see what the RGB lines coming out of the video port look like with a normal Genny RGB cable?

    Since you have a resistor on that R line, I'd try changing that out and see if it helps.

    Here's what the colors look like on their own:

    Red:


    Green:


    Blue:

    (if it doesn't show up: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...ps2eca9a56.jpg)

    This is with C-sync pulled from pin 20 of the encoder. I'm going to wire up a LM1881N Circuit to C-vid and give this a shot as well to rule out any sync issues.

    Just checks with the lm 1881n as well as pulling c-sync directly from the 315-5313 (pin 42, I believe) and no change, so its not a sync issue.

    I agree, the greens looks weak, which is why the white appears purple ( red + blue = purple)
