I am new user that just bought a broken AES from Japan on Ebay because I love collecting and repairing game consoles. I purchased it with the belief it wouldn't power on but it instead gives me a red screen without a game installed. I'm using a Genesis model 1 transformer to power the unit as it did not come with a power adapter. My initial research leads me to believe this is a work ram error so I ordered 4 CXK58257AM-10L chips in place of CXK58257AM-12L. I think the 10L just stands for the speed in nanoseconds and faster is fine. The chips I could licare with 12L would take a month to get here from China and I'm impatient. The motherboard looks to be in way better condition than I expected for being so old. I have been testing continuity the best I can for the 2 CXK58257AM-12L near the edge of the board on the same side as the AV power ports because I believe these are the work ram chips. Some of the traces can be tested between the 2 memory chips and the rest seem to go to LSPC2. Other than waiting for the new memory chips to come in the mail is there anything else I can try. Am I testing the correct CXK58257AM-12L chips? There seems to be 2 more on the board which is why I ordered 4. I can provide pictures if it would help.
