I've been donated a Saturn which doesn't boot up.
Now, never owning a Saturn doesnt help - I do not know if the console is supposed to boot into a memory management type screen (DC, PS1, etc) or not...
So first question, should this console boot without a disk?
Its had a region mod done and its not survived the test of time very well.
the switch for 50/60hz was broken (possibly why its not booting? the lifted leg would just be floating) and the bank of switches for the region also has signs of wear.
Now, I am undoing all this (intend to replace the bios with region free). Is there anyway to tell what region the motherboard/console was originally? and are the jumpers (JP6-13) documented anywhere? I basically just want to figure out the original region and return it all to stock.
Once its working as stock, I can work on modding it.
Also, are there any other common faults to look out for? I know the DC is full of them.
