Maybe you can reach out to that australian guy Tim that Smokemonster talked with in his PGM video. He seemed extremely knowledgable.

He has a website with tons of pgm information.

Do you have a non-conversion cart to test?

Also, if someone assembled the carts back wards (PCBs flipped) it's bad news as they can go both ways and sadly they will fry shit that way.

Tim's the right person to ask for help, but here is an extensive thread on arcade-projects.com about those carts as well.
