Got my Baby Pacman up and running

Installed a New Alltek MPU and game plays great


What dip switch setting allows the Free Baby feature to be awarded ?

My arrows advance to where the free baby flashes but nothing he’s awarded when made

Quoted from gutz:

Iirc, in the test menu you need to adjust a setting called special mode, set it to 2. If that isn't it, it's the other high score mode, set it 2. It's in the manual but it's sort of confusing.
Edit: it's high score mode , set to 2

Thank you so much it worked !!

Maybe someone can assist me

My baby Pacman worked perfectly seriously like 2 hours ago

In the middle of it sitting in attract mode and even just after playing a 2 player with my son I loss my video

I checked all my TP and getting the proper values per Clays Guide

Little background

New Altek Mpu
Monitor was fully rebuilt
New Pots on Vidiot
New 9928 Chip on Vidiot

Game has been a tank in all honesty

Here is pic of it earlier today

No since the Vidiot isn’t working right my mpu doesn’t properly boot

I can hit the video test and comes up looks terrible and all confused

Any pointers or help would be awesome

Okay after clearer thinking

My Vidiot only gets 9 out of 10 flashes

So at least it’s a start to fixing it

Baby Pacman Help

Okay freshly rebuild monitor / chassis
Clean and bright picture

Rebuilt Vidiot with new colors pots and gets correct Leds and game boots up and plays

Monitor now stays dark

You can hear the monitor power on and yes I’m getting 120v to the monitor

Ideas ??

Could it be the single harness from Vidiot to Monitor is getting a lousy connection ?

#687 2 years ago
Quoted from Y3AG3R:

If you hit Video test on the videot do you get the test screen?

Worked fine

Now just dark like it’s not getting a signal

Other than that it’s plays blind

I know when the vidiot has issues months back the game couldn’t even boot up nor start a game

So I feel it’s something small I’m missing

#691 2 years ago

Game boots and plays

It’s acting like the monitor is unplugged but it’s plugged in and hooked up

Worked flawless now nothing on the screen period - No flicker / scroll etc

Garage was a touch cold last night

So my son turned on the power strip to play another game and looks who’s alive again

Now this morning the monitor is back out

Any ideas ??

The game hasn’t moved an inch

Hey Folks

Have a fully working baby pacman

All communication is fine

Game plays (very well actually)

But zero sound :-/
It was like this when I acquired the game

I have gotten help with replacing C107 & C109 with brand new caps on Vidiot Board and still no sound not even a hum from the speakers

Any ideas on what I may try next

Okay folks

I made a boo boo somewhere

As mentioned my working Vidiot just had no sound

So I pulled the Board and tested the Volume Pot

It was confirmed working but I broke a leg off the pot by accident

Put the board back in now I only get 2 flashes and Vidiot doesn’t boot :-/

Any help is welcome

*** NOTE

This was caused by a poorly soldered repair jumper

Baby pacman is alive again - minus sounds

So I’m
Happy that’s it’s at least playable

#849 5 months ago
Quoted from gutz:

There is another volume pot on the coin door, is that working? Are you getting ten flashes on the vidiot at boot up? The first two flashes are for the sound section. The sound section and video section have separate power supplies on the vidiot, make sure the sound power circuit is working.


Yes 6 from MPU and 10
From Vidiot board

The game plays and works great - just no sound

A very helpful and knowledgeable pinsider has been helping me and the board is going out for
