Re: Rectifier TP5 reading way too high

Have you disconnect J1 J3 at the rectifier?

That would left only the cabinet coils... knocker, coin reject.. short with something else in the cabinet?

Maybe remove J2 pin 2 as well for a quick test?

Re: Rectifier TP5 reading way too high

Keep us informed please ! I had exactly that on my Playboy, was not getting the 7th flash because voltage was 63v caused by CR3. The source problem was an idiot (me) testing the sound board without screws to secure it... it felt and generated a big spark. I was lucky to only blow a .02$ diode and fo...

Re: Rectifier TP5 reading way too high

Speaking from experience, have you unplugged the sound board ?

Could be diode CR3 on the sound board. There is a power circuit there , input side of diode is 43v, other is 65v ish... if you read 65v each side, diode is blown and propagate 65v everywhere

Re: Bally Playboy rebirth log (Atown 2019 pick)

Fixing the display with missing digits. I did the swap test and could isolate the problem, the display itself was missing 3 digits. Usual fix for that is to replace resistors R1, R3, R5, R7, R9, R11 some tested definitely bad so I replaced them all with 1/2 Watt 100Kohm. 20190528_195854.jpg Back in ...

Re: Bally Playboy rebirth log (Atown 2019 pick)

Fixing WTF case#2. At one point while troubleshooting WTF case#1, I really though I might not have the good roms. So MPU back on the bench, I jumped it for 2716 eproms and burnt a fresh eprom set. Was still acting the same (still getting WTF#1 and #2 :brickwall ) As previously mentioned I figured WT...

Re: Bally Playboy rebirth log (Atown 2019 pick)

Fixing WTF case #1. I have post it before, here it is again anyway. Fix was to re-pin both J4 connectors on the MPU and driver board. (all .100`headers replaced on every boards) For some reason, this also fixed the flickering display issue completely... go figure. Digits where still missing though. ...

Fixing the sound. 1st action was to replace all capacitors on the sound board. Back in the game, volume was back to normal...but.... something was wrong. Tones where just not sounding the way it should, was very noticeable with the credit sound: I had to good idea to record it! https://www.youtube.c...

After all voltages were good, next was to work on the MPU. Original battery was cut off, there was no real acid damage anywhere except for the very bottom of the PCB which was scrapped off, neutralized and re-thinned. I took no chance: replaced all headers because they looked like sh&*" Fo...

Remember the game was bought AS IS. Recipe for disaster = connect everything and fire the thing while praying everything should work. Be meticulous!!

Re: La petite nouvelle ! Eight ball 1977 (projet)

Si tu as les roms originaux, on peut les remplacer par des eprom 2716 facile à trouver. Tu dois changer des jumpers sur le MPU pour utiliser des 2716. Si t'as toujours les 7 flashs je ne m’inquiéterais pas avec ça. Pour les flippers, le relais sur le solenoid/driver doit être activé... le relais c'e...

Re: La petite nouvelle ! Eight ball 1977 (projet)

Oui J2 doit être branché sur le power supply pour démarrer....

Les voltages sont bons, maintenant je verifierais si ça se rend au MPU. Mesure le 5V avec précision...

MPU:
TP1 = +5 vdc
TP2 = +11.9 vdc
TP3 = +21.5 vdc (comes from +43 vdc solenoid voltage)
TP5 = +5 vdc

Ne boot pas. Suggestions: Débranche tous les connecteurs du power supply (la carte dans le côté droit du backbox) Allume la game et asssure toi que tous les voltages sont bons sur les test points de cette carte: TP1 (AS2518-18): 6.4 volts DC. TP1 (AS2518-49): 8.2 volts DC. TP2 = 195 volts DC (could ...

Re: La petite nouvelle ! Eight ball 1977 (projet)

Salut, je ne crois pas que la game boot.
Tu dois compter 7 long "flash" lors du démarrage (LED sur le MPU, ne compte pas le flash très court au démarrage).

Fais le compte du nombre de flash et reviens nous avec ça.
