Thanks for the reply again ps2daddy. I know that points Q,T,U,V & R are fine. I checked them with a multimeter on their alternative points. I didn't however check the ones on the back of the board (D,G,H,I). Maybe I'll try and scrap away some more copper. I'm using a fibreglass burnishing brush and flux, but it's possible that one of the connections may need some 'touching up'.

I've also read that you may need a heavy wire on the reset lead? I dunno if that's true, but hey - it's worth a shot. If all else fails, I think I'm gonna try putting in a different magic3 chip and see if that makes a difference.

I'm beginning to wonder if these damn magic chips are sh*t. I've read a ton of threads about people having trouble with them. It's too bad, cause I've got a bunch of them to get rid of! arrrgh!

I'm gonna give this machine another go tonight when I get home, and if I get it working, I'll post what I did.

Thanks again...
