Mega EverDrive / Re: Mega Everdrive & 32x Purple Screen

I resolved this!  The problem was that someone had previously attempted to swap the 32x logic board and they damaged the pad connected to the 'fix' resistor on the board where carts connect.  That resistor wasn't connected to 6th pin from right bottom side of the cart socket (as cart sits in facing you with the label).  All working fine now!

Mega EverDrive / Mega Everdrive & 32x Purple Screen
« on: April 03, 2014, 09:20 PM »
I recently got an 32x (well, actually 2) and I've got a problem with one of them with the Mega Everdrive - though I suspect it's got NOTHING to do with the Everdrive at all since it works on one 32x.

Does anyone know why I might get a purple screen on the Everdrive cart in the 32x, when I can plug say Sonic 2 in and that's fine, OR a 32x game and that also works fine - albeit it eventually will lock up and hang.

I guess what I am trying to understand is how the 32x can affect a normal Megadrive cart - does it just have a pass through for the data and address lines or is it more complex than that?  Just trying to get pointers on what in the 32x might be causing the problem.  I've redone the ribbons btw - nothing to do with loose connections etc, definitely something wrong with my 32x, just not sure if it could be DRAM, or something else.
