Just be yourself and take part in good discussions (preferrably gameplay-related), then everything will fall into place.

Alright guys I have a quick question. Its to do with the instructions that come with the NEO GEO home system. I think the guy I bought it off sent me the instructions for an earlier revision because it has the picture of the NEO with the old style stick and the machine came boxed with the new style stick. Any help or link would be appreciated.
Cheers

the model is not affected by the stick it comes with if you want to know wich revision you have here is a link
http://www.jamma-nation-x.com/jammax/tutorials.html go to AES and look for:
Tech/Repair : Jul 30 2009 : Knowing your Board Version

the revisions mark the small differences inside the machine, but the manual in general is the same for all board versions! and as far as I know there wasn't a corrected manual version with the kidney joysticks!

Um sorry but I don't think thats true. I have two systems that are both 3-6 (thanks for the link to the guide). One is serial number 168108. That has matching serials on box, system and registration card so I'm sure that that one is okay. The manual has a picture of the Neo and the old style stick. The other system is 247260 with the kidney bean stick the serials match on box and system but there is no registration card. The instructions are the same as the other one but if you look at the picture here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NMINT-Neo...pt=FR_Jeux_Vidéo_Consoles&hash=item415879e7f7 you will see that these instructions, (which somehow has a lower serial than mine but comes with the new style stick) has instructions where the stick has been removed. Any thoughts?

as you said they are the same and as I told you in my first post as far as I know there are no manuals with the kidney controller depicted on it but there are other revisions to the manual! the description of usage is the same for all revisions so in general one manual haves the general information for all the console revisions, it doesn't matter which manual correction you have!

so what is exactly what you want to know?

if the manual matches your console?

Yeah thats all mate. I was just curious about manual revisions and whether I had the right one or not. It's not really a biggie. Its just that the system is in minty condition, there is no fade or scratches anywhere on the system and I was wondering if it was complete. But then I realised that it didn't have the registration card either like my other one. Thanks for your time.

Hello!

Im probably not going to be around these parts long enough to figure out how to post a new thread on the main forum so im asking me questions here.

I recently became the owner of an MVS board in a jamma cabinet. Unfortunately the board isn't working and i hate to just throw things away but i posses zero technical skills, so i was hoping if i explained the problems here you guys could help.

The board was sold to me as faulty the guy that sold said it had been working but just stopped and it now only displays a z80 error message. I did manage to get a garbled screen from one of the two carts that came with it but only the once.

The board was really dirty so the first thing i did was to clean it and check the battery, the battery has started to leak slightly and there seems to be a few tiny spots on the board near the battery.

My next step was going to be to clean the contacts with some alcohol but is it still safe to power up the board with the leaking battery still attached. There is no way of me replacing the battery unfortunately.

Any advice much appreciated.

Honestly, if you ahve a z80 error, it's not worth the hassle to try to fix it unless you know what you're doing.

Far easier and time saving to buy a new 1 slot.

Oh, and I have some for sale!

To be honest i only purchased the cabinet because it was wired for jamma and had a working monitor.

if you are interested there are some members on this forums that also own stores with the ability to fix them, I can ask around to see who is closer to your location!

When I signed here I wanted to post a WTB request for a CMVS.

But since I've found ArcadeWorks CMVS in the shape of AES, my prayers are answered.
Never had an AES before and I was very confused about AES vs MVS, or AES + Super converter II vs MVS.
Or even CMVS vs Supergun. I made my choice a consolized MVS. It's now time to leap into Neo Geo gameplay besides emulators.

I'm about to order the new 161-in-1.
I love multi/flash carts, but until there I'll try to stick an old pc with mame to my television. You know, brazilian customs are really slow and sometimes takes 2 months for something to arrive.

Ok what prices are they?

Probably best to wait til you can send PMs.

I'll do a board for any best price you can find on eBay from the sold items. So basically the fair market rate. I have pretty much every board available - 1, 1A, 1FZ, 1B, 1C and 4 slots.

it's ok even here as long as you are very specific about it being faulty and at a reasonable price!

Mostly just a lurker, registered because I pulled out my old consolized MVS 2 slot and wanted to see about getting actual sticks. Bleh, when can you PM people? Seller has original aes sticks I want to buy.

You can wait to see if the seller replies on the thread, or you can get involved in the community and browse some interesting and important stuff on the tech forum that will help you with any issues you could find in your board before it happens like the leaking battery!
The bad battery thread
or you can go to jamma-nation-x.com they have 1 controller with the same specifications for sale!

Alright, so I have an MVS 2-slot that I just recently moved to my new place. I've never had any problems with it before, but now when I go to play it, maybe about every 5th or 6th time the monitor goes black on me. Sometimes after 15 min. of playing other times after an hour. The game is still playing and I can hear all the sounds, but there is nothing on the screen. I opened up the back the last time it happend and noticed that the neck on the monitor was not orange, so I'm guessing it's a power issue. I examined the power cord and looked around inside for a possible loose connection, but everything seemed fine. Unfortunately I have zero tech knowledge , so from what I've scouted online I'm guessing could it be a diode or the horizontal transformer on the monitor board. I'm not sure though. I just want to fix whatever it is and don't know where to start.

Anyone hazzard a guess?
