Neo Geo 1 Slot Constantly Restarting when loading a game
« on: August 12, 2017, 09:15:14 PM »
I have a one-slot (top loader - can't recall the exact version) that restarts constantly when I have my metal slug x game in there.

BUT.... if you go into the test mode, it does not reset.

Also, I have a 161-1, and it does not reset until you load a game.  The menu loads just fine.  Its just it will load a game, get to the title screen, re-set. Over and over. You can exit to the menu, and then load another game.


ANy help greatly appreciated!

Clean the cartridge with electric cleaner & some q-tips. Then check your 5 volts. Neogeo's like to run around 5.1-5.3 volts.

Checked voltages - normal and still resetting!


What's weird is some older games work.

I tried viewpoint, puzzle bobble and ninja commando - all work.

Samurai showdown 4 and metal slugs - reset constantly .

I'd tend to wonder if the cartridge were the issue, if older games work fine.

check those titles in another neo geo?

Sorry - I wasn't clear. 

Those older games are all on the 161-1 cart.

I've only got Metal Slug X in cart form, and a 161-1 cart.

Metal Slug X resets constantly;  161-1 cart works with the older games, but not new-ish ones, like the metal slugs. 

(It's pretty weird)

Bump it up to 5.25v, reading at the board itself across components and not at the power supply or connector to board.  See if that helps.

I agree with funwiz. Bump it to 5.25v or 5.3v . Also make sure the cartridge is clean. Rubbing Alcohol and cotton swabs help alot. Just like cleaning a Nintendo cartridge .

I've cleaned the contacts thoroughly.  it just seems weird that some games would work on the multiboard, but others would not if its a voltage issue.

Could be that the newer games pull less current as it has fewer chips which are less power consuming, and the older ones have larger chips pulling more power, taking away from the cpu's power.

test the multiboard in another neo geo. it is Chinese, after all.  :)

if metal slug x is a bootleg, that too...

but a 3rd thumbs up for bumping the volts to 5.25.

Sure that would be great!  I am pretty sure its just my board.  It seems weird that some games work and some dont.
