They light up together.

You mean that 7,6,5,4,1 are all lit up together, and nothing more happens? That would be read out as 0xF2 if we read it binary (expressed as hex)?

So, you'd see 0xF2 and 0xF3? Seems to be stopping at the end of the self test before console comes to life then...

Could be a bad console selector switch in that case maybe. I'll experiment on my machine later tonight if I have time.
