Okay guys i have a 1977 capt fantastic. this is a home model. no coin slot here. i plug it in, turn power on, and it activates the right side slingshot and holds it for about 10 seconds. then activates the left bumper thumper and holds it. then it will trip the left and right solenoid breakers. the led display will not turn on, checked pin 3 at 3.17v going out of AC power 11 pin connector. suggestions? i can upload pictures and videos if needed

Thank you,

okay ken, i have 5v and 6.2v dc at capacitors, when i unplug cpu, solenoids stop energizing, can this cpu stop the led display from turning on?

Sounds like a corrupt cpu chip.

i ordered a new chip from flippers. i will let you know how it works, and if there is any improvement.

Double check for burnt power supply connectors too.

no connectors appear to be burned and pins all seem to be in ok shape. chip should be here in about a week

kenlayton alextodd5 Just got my series 2 chip from flippers.com in the mail a few days ago plugged it in and works perfectly. Ran through the test mode found the one coil I dont have connected because i had to replace But then switched to Game mode and it plays flawlessly. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the replacement chip and will probably order a couple more just to have on hand for the future if they stop making these!
