Re: Tech: Bally Playboy - Solved

I decided to leave the re-pinned original wiring attached and zip tie everything back in place.

Game seems to work perfectly fine now so I am leaving it and calling the issue resolved.

Thanks to both Sylvain and Tommy for the help! Very much appreciated. Now on to the shop job!

Re: Tech: Bally Playboy

Update: Wired a purple jumper wire between MPU J4 pin 2 to SDB J4 pin 4. See pic. Powered up and started a game. Works perfectly. Obviously there is an issue with this one single wire. So I take the harness apart to inspect the casing of the wire because I think there is a break in the casing causin...

Re: Tech: Bally Playboy

What could be causing the MPU PIA U10/U11 to become damaged via the sound board? The sound board in the game works although I think it needs some adjustment to the Sustain Adj pot because the sounds are a bit too high pitched. As mentioned in a previous post - my next step tonight will be to wire in...

To avoid taking apart my harness I thought an easier way to determine if it’s a harness problem would be to run a single new wire between MPU J4 pin ...

Re: Tech: Bally Playboy

I dusted off my logic probe and checked U2 ABCD pins on the SDB with the game cycling solenoid test. AB&D pins are high and go low when selected as normal. C pin (U2 pin 21) is continually high throughout the test and does not go low. What does this mean?

Re: Tech: Bally Playboy

I assumed the wiring from J5 to each coil is good because I can ground each transistor and the proper coil will fire.

This to me seems like a signal interpretation issue but I have tried two other SDBs now and I think the SDB is ok because the same problem exists with all 3 unique SDBs.

MPU J4 Pin 4 is not shorting to MPU J4 Pin 3 or to SDB J4 Pin 5. Not sure how to check if MPU J4 Pin 2 i...
