It looks like your RGB amp already has the required capacitors on it. So there should only be the one 180ohm resistor in the scart cable that goes from the 5V pin to the blanking signal pin.
Thanks for the suggestion MNKyDeth, I'll give it a try.  I've got lots of those legs, I always keep them for bridging points together.
Congrats on figuring it out and getting 'er fixed up.  Another system ready for another 25+ years of being awesome!   :mrgreen:
Hi guys, just want to inform you that the problem was the sync wire! I disconnected it and now finally the console works fine.
Yesterday I got other two pce duo that need to be repaired, but that's another story... XD
Thank you very much for your help!
by the eay do you use caps or resistors into your pce rgb scart cable on the RGB signal? coz the image is slightly dark
It controls so weird, especially the difference in jumping between running and walking, that it feels sloppy.
Well it's better than JJ&Jeff/Kato&Ken :)

It does have a slippery feel, but a lot of platformers did that in the 90's. I remember Psycho Fox and Alex Kidd on SMS had that mechanic and it annoys me too.

puff puff pass
I know you said you cleaned with IPA, it might be worth taking the really small legs from the caps if you didn't use surface mount caps. And poking them through the holes on the pcb to ensure the thru-hole traces are clear of any residue. If you can measure the proper volts on one side but not the other your problem is there.

I typically find voltage issues around the ap-amps (in the regular consoles)... But those traces that go through the PCB fill up with crap and cap fluids. Cleaning them out and measuring voltage on either side sometimes has to happen. And if you find one that is reading different from one side to the other. Rub some of the coating away and solder the cap leg to both sides of the hole to reinforce and complete the trace.
