Also I believe I posted the pictures on this page.
I am currently working on modding my Sega Dreamcast with a better fan. I am replacing the stock Dreamcast fan with a new fan I found online at:http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/e ... ND/2560395
It is a Delta AFB0305HA-AF00 fan.
I soldered the wires together correctly I believe to the old connector on the stock Dreamcast fan. When I turn on the system the fan runs beautifully. The trouble I am having now is that after the system boots up after the Sega Dreamcast screen the screen goes black. Nothing happens after that. I have tried different cables and same thing. I tried soldering the wires differently then the fan just doesn't turn on. So I believe I had them wired correctly. The new Delta fan I am trying to install is a 5VDC with a third wire for speed sensor too.
What I am thinking is that maybe the fan is drawing too much power and the system shuts down afterwards. (From what I have read on forums)
The connections I have for soldering the old connector and the new fan wires are (Old Connector listed first then new fan wires) Red
I tried soldering the Blue to Blue and Orange to Black and the fan wouldn't even turn on when I powered the system on.
Also a few weird things also happened. When I plugged in my composite cables the colors were correct but when I plugged in my VGA cable, the colors were different every time I turned it on, like pink or green. Don't know if that would help but I am trying to list every possible problem to find my solution!
Can someone please help me!? I really want this new fan installed. It's pretty nice and I would love to use it! Thank you so much!
