Repairer: channelmaniac

Symptom: No sync

Bare board was sent and was in terrible shape. Someone had soldered to the JAMMA connector, VGA connector, sound connector audio chip, and had removed the protection diodes from the VGA and JAMMA connector. Removed all the wire bits from the soldered connectors, cleaned up the solder joints, desoldered and cleaned the JAMMA connector, removed a chunk of solder from inside the Expansion Cartridge Slot 1 connector, cleaned solder splash inside the connector, then cleaned the connector and board with flux remover.

Found a damaged trace leading to pin 13 of the VGA connector (Composite Sync) and repaired it. Tested game.
