Bootleg Meteorites

Post by steamfitter »

Where do I find manual and schematic for a bootleg game . Maybe someone will know these boards and guide me in the right direction.
This is my 2nd attempt at a video game , the first one is still collecting dust :FP:
I changed a bridge rectafier and now it seems to have all power 5 v , 12 v and 24 v.
I would think it's not booting .
Any help is appreciated

Thanks

Denis

you don't ... :( even for non bootleg games, it's a blessing to find a schematic.

Would a working Xevious board help? The video card comes with a video glitch.

I know very little about video games .

The transformer is loud enough that i tough it was the speaker.
I tested at capacitors (on main board) and get voltage out of all of them but don't know if there right 5 12 24 dcv +/-
The back of the tube has orange glow
no sound, tried coin up
2 16 pin chip had black legs , cleaned and re-install

i have a working atari astroids cocktail , the original has 1 board and the meteorites has 2
if i could swap them to test i would if i know it's safe to do so

This board has a blown fuse F100.
I wonder if it's related to the bridge I replaced on the main power supply.

Some progress
Replaced blue cap and bridge rectafier . All the powers good coming out of the brick .
Tried just changing cap on the board and still didn't work . I took the board out of my Astroids cocktail and tried it , it works but the screen has a dot in the center and lines .
I'm looking for info to rebuild the small power supply , caps are replaced . Anybody come across this board before ?

It probably needs a cap kit for the monitor or is it bad when you have a bright spot in the center ?

Thanks

Denis

Looks to me like a problem with the blanking line/spot killer circuit on the monitor board. Checked for cracked solder or bad header connections as well as short circuits/corrosion whiskers. Definitely don't leave it on more than a few seconds with that centre dot as it's burning a hole into the middle of the phosphor. You definitely don't want that.

shango066 went through this when repairing one and although he's a TV repair guy he managed to fudge his way through: https://youtu.be/ZfKYHPU3uek?t=689

reflow every solder point on the whole monitor board. You haven't changed anything except you've moved things and now it's changed, therefore you have a mechanical contact issue somewhere
