Future Spa project #2

Post by steamfitter »

An new adventure begins with my second Future Spa project ( the first one was 10 years ago ). viewtopic.php?f=25&t=18961
I'm going to start by getting it to work and use it as a garage pin for now and one day if i find a nice backglass I'll do full resto with hardtop ( something a haven't tried yet ) .

It's on legs , i need to fixe some displays , put in some boards , have a quick look under playfield and turn it ON :FP:

To be continued......

You'll be the first to know Sparky

Over the week i changed the driver board , cleaned a few switches, repinned a few connectors , fixed the slingshot kicker , replaced a broken plastic and more .
The game plays 100% but not as it should :FP:
This game will need lots of TLC

The good thing is I prefer working on games than playing . I can play anytime but bringing back a classic to life is more rewarding for me .

1 day at a time I'll make it beautiful again

Today I tried the sound board nothingat test point 1 (and soon realized comparing FS with ST schematics it was missing A8J1-10) added wire . I I'm now getting the right powers ( fixed a broken wire on speaker, i will test again later).
I cleaned every playfield inserts, changed every light bulb , changed a few light sockets .
With some lights still not working , I had to find missing wires and modify harness .
I just need to find out why the 2nd U is not working .
