Hi everyone!!

I recently bought an old PIU DX Machine, it had no screen so I bought a LED TV with VGA input, it came with an old MK3 but works  perfectly, I also got an MK9 with fiesta 2 and it also works fine, but i got an MK5 with Exceed 2 and a Zero, but the MK5 doesn't show any image or audio.

I also got a new power source only for the MK5 but i had no luck.
I have try both HDD (exceed 2 and zero) but I still get no video or sound.

I mean the MK5 is on, fans and HDD are working but I got no video output or audio from it.

Any ideas? :/

what about the pads, anything lighting on? I just got done setting up my arcade and if you need help, the more pictures you post the better.  What you should check first are the voltage settings on the new power supply.  If you are connecting it straight into the cabinet the voltage setting should be set to 230V and not 115V.  there is a little thing on the back of the power supply that you switch between these two settings.



If when you flip this switch on the cabinet machine (for the DX it's on the bottom right)

tinypic

and you still don't hear anything running in the cabinet or none of the lights turn on than it's  a messed up fuse, which was the case for me.  I connected my MK6 to the cabinet's power cable with the voltage set at 115V because that's what it was set at and I heard a pop.  So there was like a short circuit or something.  I had to replace the fuses and then everything worked again.


Also, I was interested in getting an HDTV for my arcade, but I want to know if there would be a lot of lag when you play.

Well, as I said, everything works fine with the MK3 and MK9.

MK3 uses the source from the machine, and MK9 has its own source, (I use 115V for the MK9), and the source of the MK5 its on 115V because I don't have 220V at home.

But the MK5 works, you can hear the fans working and all, it has a panel with 2 numbers and when it's on marks "FF" for exceed 2" and "00" for zero, but no audio or video

take a picture of the MK5 and the MK9 and a picture of the power supply units if you can so I can tell you what I am talking about.  Ignore the MK3

Ok here are the pics:

These are from MK5:






MK5 with power source


As I said: no video or audio from MK5 but it's working, you can see all the fans working.

And these are from MK9
It has its own power source.





MK9 doesn't have any HDD at the time.

That's it, that's how connected the MK5, everything seems to work, but no video or audio :/

Set the power switch to 115 and plug it into a normal PC power connector in a wall outlet, and tell me if the fan spins or not.

Fan not spinning = machine isnt powering on, either the cmos battery is dead (meaning it needs to be powered on by a PC power on button) or the motherboard (or) powersupply is dead.

if it IS spinning, Then its powering on just fine.. then you may have the video connector in the wrong port. With a graphics card connected it will default the VGA out to that device and not the motherboard.

Still dont see anything? Test it without the graphics card with a monitor connected to just the onboard VGA out, you should at the very least see the bios startup screen. If you do. Then power it down, connect the graphics card again, See if the video is coming out of the graphics card or motherboard this time.

If its coming from neither, then your graphics card is most certainly dead.

Yeah fans are working, but still no video, anyways I decided to return it, I was wondering if it had something to do with the power, I mean, I was suplying 115V to the MK5 with a CPU power source, instead connecting it to the machine source that converts de 115V to 220V for all the machine parts, I couldn't connect it to the machine because the energy cables from the source to the MK3 (that came with the machine) are directly solded to the MK3 as you can see at the bottom of the second picture -.-

I dont see why you would have returned it, A replacement video card is less than 20 USD...

Just how much did you pay for the cab? Because they are usually worth a minimum of around 500-700 USD
