NAC monitor is black, has sound. Only works when I swap games.

I power it on. I have sound and the marquee lights up but the screen is black. I switch out the CPS2 game (a/b boards) and it works fine.

But when I turn it off and back on, the same issue comes back...

Any tips? Thanks!

Maybe I'm not understanding correctly - does it only look black with a certain CPS2 game? It might've suicided.

No it works with all my CPS2s. I thought it was the game at first but when I switched them, it worked. I tested with multiple a/b boards. Something is happening when I power on/off.

I still do not understand, when you switched "them" it worked, what worked, the monitor??, the cps2 game?? the A board? the B board?

When you turn it on and there is no screen, run the back of your hand across the front of the tube, do you feel static? If not the chassis may not be firing up. Check to see if you're getting back glow as well.

so... you need to detach (and reattach) the jamma wire from the game after powering off for the game to work again? I dont suppose your monitor will know if the game is same or not when you reattach the jamma wire :)

No static and when I opened the cab and looked inside a glow (light) was shining down. Never noticed that before? Hmm...

No static. I look up in the cab (from the bottom inside) and I see a glow(light) coming from the top of the cab. Never had that before.

Again I swapped games at it worked. This morning I went to power on to test...back to a Black Screen.
