I have checked the board but I have not found a problem similar to mine, so I figured I'd have to create a new thread...
I have a weird problem with my Saturn, it is a European Model 2 console (with round buttons), Model No. MK-80200A-50, Serial No. AD65086892. It has not been modified in any way, I have never opened the system, but it was already used when I bought it.
The console starts up just fine, it runs the cd, no problem, then, about 4 to 5 minutes into the game, to which point everything works fine, the screen turns to black without a warning, and the cd stops spinning. Yet, the green led on the front is lit, which seems to indicate the console is still on.
At this point I have to tell that the console itself worked fine for about 3/4 years, it started doing this about six monthes ago, and I couldn't find anything online about it.
Ideas, anyone ?
Thanks in advance,
