JVC X'Eye Issues

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I've been reading the topics here related to Genesis issues and I'm hoping someone here can help me.


I recently had my X'Eye sent away to be recapped. As far as I know, before being shipped back to me (and beat up by USPS), the console worked fine.


Once I received it back, it has an issue where it will only display a black screen without a cart or cd in the drive. If I put a cart in, it will boot to the "produced by" nag screen, and go black.


If I then remove the cart and try to turn the console on, the system displays a random color (magenta, Blue, Yellow, or white). If I put a cart in, turn it on, turn it off, remove the cart, and turn it on again without a cart, the color is usually different.


I got it to start a game once and it had no audio. I got it to boot to bios once, it had audio, but a game wouldn't boot.


I'm flummoxed.


Any thoughts?

They did test both carts and cds, I have pictures of my console hooked up and running.


Just trying to find out if anyone else has had issues like this or know the exact fix. Probably going to send it back to the repairman.

My guess is that if you open it up and go to town with a magnifying glass, you'll find some surface-mounted part is either missing or loose. Probably happened in shipping. That sucks real bad, though.
