@GTV reviews the Cosmic Fantasy 1-2 Switch collection by Edia, provides examples of the poor English editing/localization work. It's much worse for CF1. Rated "D" for disappointment, finding that TurboGrafx CF2 is better & while CF1's the real draw, Edia screwed it up...

Unfortunately the problem you are describing(white screen) isn't usually caused by bad capacitors.

This can be caused by many different things. A bad 7805 voltage regulator, Bad traces or connections on the board(usually caused by corrosion under the hucard slot), a bad HU6280 CPU, or in some rare cases a shorted capacitor but this isn't usually the case.

Start looking for corroded traces or via hole connections under the card slot. Also check that all the traces for the card slot pins are good.

Hi,

I guess i checked Reset Pin. But i checked only continuity signal.

IC901 (C6280) pin 11 > HUcard port pin 36 continuity OK
IC903 (C6270) pin 24 > Hucard port pin 36 continuity OK

Is this the right way to test RST pin ? or i must to test something else (about RST)?

Thanks a lot  :D

 Recently finished DE.JA (Super CD).

 What a great story.

 It also has a sequel, which unfortunately wasn't released on PC Engine.

Anyway, pretty good 25-minute retrospective of Castlevania legacy.

On the other hand, the opening vampire skit REALLY sucks... I wanted some kind of joke out of this like "AVGN 2024 version updated for modern audiences..." It validates typical trends that everything sucks nowadays (mediocrity is the default), haha. Funny enough, I didn't realize the obvious vampire/sucks pun in my first post draft, had to edit it in, *I* suck!

I personally prefer both Dracula X (PC-Engine), and Vampire Killer (Megadrive) over Super Castlevania IV.

 Not that I dislike Super Castlevania IV ; but I am often surprised at how highly people rank it compared to other games in the series.

Ah, too bad!

My advice:
1) Ask/PM @Keith Courage while he's around. He was just here by request.
2) Use the forum Search function for "white screen" - I'm sure I've seen old posts/threads about this problem in my years viewing this forum. There may be some lost clues somewhere in old posts.

Example: Here's a case that @thesteve (a pro EE & Turbo Expert) fixed with explanations of what was investigated/probed/etc. (he's retired though, you can't hire him).

EDIT: 3) To help out somewhat further, I reached thesteve on Facebook and asked for general advice on no-boot/white-screen failures, he said to check the reset pin and address lines!

Best of luck.

Hi :)

Full recap was done. Always white screen  :-k

I dont know what i can check now.
No burning points on the mainboard.

What could I consider to be the cause of the problem? It is Hucard port issue or Gpu/cpu issue ?

It seems that the white screen can come from many sources.... i dont know where to start  :undecided:

If people have some tips ! thanks to share it

have a nice day

Hahahahaha!!! Does this remind you of anyone ??
It does look somewhat like someone who has a retro gaming channel on Youtube. I hope the ressemblance wasn't intentional.
