GDEMU Ver. 5.5 - No Video on Boot ?

Post#1 » Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:33 am

Hi,

I got a GDEMU a few months ago and i've tried it in two Dreamcasts. When i connect the GDEMU and turn it on, the Dreamcast fan spins but there is no video or any BIOS post or anything

is there something i'm doing wrong with the memory card configuration or something? again this is true for two different Dreamcast systems

Gdemu can have the cut connecter and short out the dreamcast making them useless check your gdemu look at the connector to see if it's cut at the end this happen to number of people..

Switch back to the GDROM drive and see if this issue recurs.
If it only happens with GDEMU, then you have a broken unit.

If the gdemu shorted out the dreamcast then gdrom back in it do the same thing.. There was user that bought one of these with the cut connector and tried it in 2 dreamcasrs and shorted them just like this.

Clean the pins of the power supply, it gave me problems and that's what I did
