I just pulled mine out and getting the exact same thing, on both a TG-16 and CoreGrafx. It has to do with how the connection is seated between the SSD3 and the console. It's pretty touchy.

Thanks, but I've connected / re-seated it at least a dozen times now, on two different consoles. It is FIRMLY attached and fully seated. No luck. I'm pretty sure it's a bad solder joint on the connector, but removing / re-flowing it will be a big pain in the rear.

I don't know how helpful this is as I've only had the unit for less then a week, However I had the same problem when I first connected mine up. It' turned out to be the Scart Cable, It just needed to be pushed in a little bit more. So the connection for me was a bit tight and I didn't want to damaged the unit. A little pressure and it's now fine.
