Mambo Frog Wont Boot!


Recommended Posts

We have two Mambo Frog desks. Two weeks ago I was informed all the lighting had failed, and the LCD monitor was full of garbage See below). After a restart apparently it was OK bu this particular night I wasn't there, and a DJ had some "Mate" using the Frog.... Not impressed.





Its run for two weeks OK, even the monitor appeared fine but after I replaced The SX slider they also wrecked on that night, The desk now refuses to boot. LCD Monitor shows nothing at all, no sync. Desk LCDs show Zero 88 copyright ect. But nothing more happens.


On pulling the spare desk out, it refused to take a show disk, rebooting every time the floppy drive was accessed! Tried swapping floppy drives, no change, unplugged all connectors (including a jumper molex next to power connector) and reconnected, and the reserve desk then took the disk.


I did try the front panel of the reserve desk, on the original desks back panel (CPU) but the mainboard still refuses to boot. Even tried popping out the battery in desperation, for five minutes, same result.
