So my brother came over for Easter this weekend, and had some boards
with him that he wanted to test out for a friend.

I have almost no room to work on games, so stupidly, I placed the edge
connector on my PCB at an angle without noticing. As soon as the game
was fired up, there was a huge pop and smoke. I am guessing that the
harness got misaligned on a couple of the contacts.

I managed to completely blow up cap C39. The cap guts were everywhere!
I pulled a spare off a dead Millipede board, but it still will not fire
up. When I turn it on, the led on the board is lit, and the one and two
player buttons stay lit. I get nothing on the monitor.

So, anybody know what else I blew up? Please help.

If it matters, I am running a Millipede PCB (with Multipede kit) in a
Centipede machine with the adapter from Arcadeshop.

Thanks,
Kevin

Did you take the Multipede kit off and try the Millipede board with
just the original chips?
