    NFL blitz cab issues. Freezes

    Just got my nfl blitz cab and and after being left on for 30-40 mins it freezes.

    Hasnít froze during play but when left running it freezes.

    Odd time the screen is completely wavy before freezes.

    5.21 was voltage reading.

    Ordered the compact flash kit but wonít be here for a week or so.

    Any ideas??

    Dumb question - are you playing NFL blitz or another game in the cabinet? Try any other boards?

    Isn't 5.21 kinda high for the voltage?

    Going to turn down to 5.1 and haven’t had time to try a different board good idea. And uyes its blitz running inside.

    Compact flash is a week away. Also going to just get new power supply as well to be safe.

    5.21 does sound high, especially if its at the jamma edge. I try to aim for 5.0v-5.10ish for most boards unless there is a reason to. Once you start reaching 5.25v you are getting extremely close to the maximum tolerances of a lot of chips and will start frying.

    I assume you're metering the voltage at the jamma harness edge pcb connector and not the power supply itself as it will be significantly higher there.

    If you wanna be even more precise you can measure the voltage at the furthest logic IC. In general though the jamma loom will usually suffice.

    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.
