Well, I'm not sure how much is known at this point about CPS3 suicide (if that even exists)...and I'm not an expert on the subject. What I definitely would advise is to contact Capcom's repair center about the problem.

Capcom USA won't touch japanese parts. If you fly to Japan or send it to a Japanese distributor they could fix it for you. You mentioned two kits. Both of the pcbs show a green screen?

Here's what I recommend doing first:

Contact the owner of this website, http://kmfdm40.tripod.com/tech.htm

Explain your situation to him etc. He might be able to fix it etc.

I wish I could tell you more information atm however my cps3 system died last year and I'm still waiting for capcom to fix it.

The CPS-3 motherboard are very weakly and subject to die when there is a little voltage spike so i have a noice filter for this problem but this time i think that the batteries was died (i changed the sim in one of the WarZard motherboard and swiched in it SFIII and work perfect so i'm sure that the problem was in cartriges); all my other CPS-3 PCBs work fine :)

Wolfang is a very professional man, a very arcade lover and also a friend for me we speak about CPS-3 troubles and renew batteries one month ago and i sended to him one of my WarZard cart for renew barttery but perhaps this time there was a mistake by me that have ruined his work and we filed (he tryed to ad another battery near the old one because is impossible replace the old one). Any way he say me that there are dead batteries in all my WarZard PCBs! a I have trust Wolfgang, he is truly the only one i know who really fix CPS2 an CPS3 hardware, when it's possilble, obviously.

I would suggest contacting Capcom. Even if their USA division doesn't handle the japanese versions, they may know someone who may be able to replace the battery, and refresh the decryption key, or send you a new dongle.
