Question about Jaguar Boot without Cart

Recommended Posts

I came across a loose Jaguar console $30 at a thrift store while traveling out of state for work. No carts available and all my stuff is back home.  I bridge cart pins 34B and 35B to see if it would power on and it does. However I don't get the Jaguar logo or Red Screen. So my question is with out a cart and bridging these two pins does the Jaguar display anything?

I am sure more knowledgeable people like Zerosquare or CyranoJ can provide a definitive answer but personally I would think that without a cart it would fail the checksum which should result in the Red Screen of Death.

One for Zero!

 

I'm not the type to jam random bits of metal in the cart slot ;)

I bridged 34/35B on the cart port so the system will power on as outlined in a guide by Zerosquare

I bridged the two Pins on the underside of the motherboard. No jamming into the slot lol

Try jamming a cartridge into the slot. 

That's what I do. Works a treat!

Sorry for the delay, I was in vacation abroad. If you bridge pins 34B and 35B and power on the Jaguar without a cartridge, you should get the red screen of death with the Jaguar logo. If you don't, then there's something wrong with the console, unfortunately.
