Booting to test screen

13 Sep 2019, 16:47

I received my NeoSD today and tried booting it up. The cart doesn't seem to get recognised since the neo geo boots up to the hatched test screen.
I read in a similar post that the cartridge might be reversed. I opened up the NeoSD cart and confirmed that the white arrows are lined up correctly.
Anything else I can try to get things working?

Problem solved in the meantime. I double checked the orientation again and the cartridge was reversed. What was a bit surprising is that the pcb with the white arrow was not on the label side of the cartridge but on the other side. My neo geo board has metal shielding that prevented the cartridge from being inserted the right way round so I had to open the cartridge, flip the electronics around and close it again. Once inserted correctly I was up and running in no time.
