Random crashes and reboots

13 Jun 2019, 22:47

PCEngine model: original white one

Power Supply: Sega Megadrive model 1 PSU

Video cable: RGB SCART

SD card brand: Samsung EVO plus 64GB and Lexar 32GB

Region modded?: no

SSDS3 revision 1, 2 or B?: B

In Game Trigger enabled in the Options menu? No

Any other details specific to your setup: CM8833 CRT monitor


Problem or Issue: I get random crashes, reboots after playing a while with all games I tried playing for an extended period of time (+-30 to 60 minutes). It seems like hucards reboot, while CD games outright crash(single color screen with a few glitchy looking graphics).

It’s most likely either your PCEngine or the psu going bad. Do you have a spare of either to check?

You are probably right, tried a different Sega megadrive PSU it ran once (forgot the SD) turned it back on again and the fuse broke :lol: .

Probably a good excuse to recap it, replace the 7805 with a new one, obviously replace the fuse (1A right?), install a fuse holder and redo the RGB mod I did when I only modded gameboys before ~10 years back. And hopefully that will solve everything :roll: .
