Check if there is any bridging on the solder side of the PCB ;)

Hi, where did you "find" it? Like did you buy it working or not?

It is a GREAT game so good find, hopefully you can get it working. I have a working board, so I would be happy to provide pictures or any help I can from across the pond.

I have no idea if it will help you figure out what region PCB you have, but here's a picture of my Japanese version:

1/ Check your 5V voltage, it should be between 4,80V and 5,15V.

2/ Dump the main program eprom with the sticker removed if you can.

If all above is OK it looks like RAM issue.
