So my buddy Ross bought Omaha's DistorteD cab and we're trying to set it up.

We're having problems, it gives a "test button held down" error when the test button isn't held down... we had to replug almost everything in the cabinet, and to our best guess we have things right, but we can't get past this problem.

Does anyone have some experience working on IIDX cabs or know anything about this issue? If you would please PM me, reply, get back to me as squeethehobo on AIM, that would be great. I'd optimally like to talk to you on the phone if you know anything.

Regards,
Waffles

Did this ever happen to that arcade in Omaha? Perhaps they have a regular tech guy your friend could contact.

Yeah, never had the issue... odd as shit. Only thing I can think of is a disconnected/broken wire.

Are you sure it's not a hacked machine? If you butcher out all the security checks but do nothing else then you'll get this error. This is because button readouts are actually sent back inverted from the input PCB, so if you've got a zero signal from the input subsystem for whatever reason, then this gets interpreted as every single button held down. This includes the test switch, which will cause the machine to do a factory reset at game start if the Test button is held.

Well, if I'm right then there's not an awful lot you can do about it..

DistorteD is the last style whose legitimacy is even remotely possible in the US, though.

Very unlikely to be hacked, although I suppose there's no guarantee. The security plug is definitely legitimate.

Turns out a cable got damaged in shipping. what was the omaha DD is actually pretty now, with decent timing, soon to be a Sirius, since this guy is turning renting his machines into a business. Its cool stuff. Looks like it'll be living in an anime/j-culture store. Intahrestin.
