Donkey Kong 3 (Nintendo) PCB repairs
Problem: Missing Sprites
The board ran perfect, but no motion sprites showed up.
I swapped for a known good video board and still had the same problem. Usually on any DK type pcb
this problem is on the Video board. Looking at the schematics, I looked for activity on the LS367s
at 3A and 6A, nothing! All inputs were stuck high. Just for fun, I swapped out the Z80A DMA controller
and tried the board again. It worked and the sprites had returned. DK and DKJr won't run with a bad
DMA controller, but it appears that DK3 can.
Solution: Bad Z80A DMA controller on the CPU board
