Does any one know how can I make repro cart mapper16 ? (DBZ patch to eng.) or if I have other game board mapper16(gundam) how can I rewire to fix it?

Thank you.

If you mean SD Gundam Gaiden, that is mapper 159 and not the same as DBZ.

If you want to play DBZ in english, buy the original cartridge and replace the MaskROMs with EPROM or Flash just like any other cartridge. You might have to rewire like any other MaskROM, or maybe not. You'll just have to check and see.

I've try to move maskrom and replace eprom on original DBZ but it show dark screen.

Then the EPROM isn't wired up correctly. Did you rewire the EPROM or directly solder it into the socket? Whichever you did, you probably need to do the other.

PRG

pin24-hole16

CHR
pin2-hole24
pin24-hole2
pin22-hole31
pin31-hole30

Is it correct?

I don't know off hand. However it's possible it doesn't need to be rewired since Famicom carts were not all manufactured by Nintendo. Thus it might have a EPROM compatible pinout. Since it isn't a Nintendo Mapper, it's not a Nintendo made board, so it's worth a shot trying it without rewiring.

But I'm not sure as I have not ever messed with any Famicom boards as I don't own any.

does anyone know that mapper16 can be hack to mapper1 or other mapper? :?

I suggest downloading Disch's mapper docs at http://www.romhacking.net/docs/362/ and reading the information about mapper 16. It explains very clearly the difference between mappers 16 and 159 and explains all the registers. It also attempts to explain EPROM. Also, refer to this page: http://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/Bandai_EPROM_mapper
