Model: MV4
Symptom: Backup RAM error

Replaced both Backup RAM chips. Removed the foam from the underside of the bottom board as it was hardened and was causing corrosion of the board. Patched a corroded trace for the R/W signal to the Backup RAM. Board would boot but only slot 1 was working. Cleaned the top board, patched 8 bad traces, and tested. Board would play, but had incorrect sounds playing. Replaced a bad YM2610 IC and tested.

Model: MV2F
Symptom: Crosshatch of death. Severe trace damage.

Board was a parts board purchased in a lot. Someone had done a horrific job of removing the connectors from slot 2 and damaged many traces where they met the solder pads and in-between solder pads.

Removed battery and cleaned board. Removed the severely damaged memory card slot connector, installed 2 missing connectors for Slot 2 and tested. Board would not boot cartridges. Patched 1 trace for Address line A9 between the NEO-E0 at position F3 and Slot 1. Board would boot but not play sounds. Patched 2 traces between Slot 1 and Slot 2. Board would play carts in Slot 1 but in Slot 2 they had graphics and sound corruption. Patched 11 additional traces to restore Slot 2 to proper functionality. Installed a coin cell battery kit and tested.
