I was playing a game with ez flash omega, it was working fine, I turned it off and turned back on after a few seconds, now i always get Gameboy screen, no nintendo logo. The cart isnt booting.

I tried to check the crystal with multimeter in continuity mode. No beeps between any of the 4 pins.

Can it still be the crystal?

Also does the crystal has to be exact 24.54545 mhz, or can it be rounded off like 25mhz or 24mhz will also work?

Thanks

Yes, it must be the exact number.

I got to say, although it was interesting, I wasn't much of a fan with your guy's EZ Flash V back in the days. But I do love your dedication and support of the product.

Appreciate seeing repair/diag info. Not a surprise to see some BGA issues on these thin boards.

I only have accesd to aliexpress, as other options have shipping charges almost equal to the price of the cart itself.

The closest option available is 24.576mhz. Will it work?

Im confirming beacause it takes 30 days for the package to arrive.

If 24.576mhz wont work, is there any other option left for me?

Thanks

Yes i have tried, still havnt got any response, and chances seem slim. I bought this from Aliexpress as well.

Ill try the local cellphone parts market , if indont find it ill order 24.576mhz.

In the mean time ill get the main chip reflowed (flux and a little heat) by a local guy here who repairs ps4.

Its just been a couple of days since i got my EZ Flash. I started having random hangups with RTC feature and some random cart restarts a couple of times.

I bought the EZ-FLASH OMEGA DE through a dealer in South Korea.
But my cartridge is showing 'Read S71 ID Error!!!!'

I wanted to exchange the product because it was difficult to refair.

A dealer in South Korea says to me :
"You can contact this forum and exchange the product,
if the ez-flash representative guarantees it."

So I would appreciate if the person in charge could reply quickly.
