Hi, hope you will be able to help me.
Bought a BTTF Data East pin back in October and I had a couple of things to sort on it. Namely new drop targets and I wanted to install an NVRAM chip. I had just been using AA batteries since I bought it.
This week the machine stopped on Monday, it would just light up but no startup sound or no way to start a game. I took the batteries out and it fired up so I assumed just flat batteries. I fitted the NVRAM chip and again fired up ok.
Today I decided to replace the drop targets, I got them fitted no problem but upon starting the machine up the pop bumpers and slingshots will not work. I had a play around inside but can't see anything out of ordinary. Then the machines went back to no startup sound? So far I have removed 3 boards from behind the backglass for a visual inspection and no burn marks or anything. After and hour of fiddling around basically plugging stuff in and out it'll boot now again but pop bumpers and slingshots aren't working.
I have checked all fuses etc and all look fine, I have read the manual and to be honest I'm a total newbie with pins so don't really know what I'm doing. I have been searching google and this is the only thing I am coming across on this site.
Flippers don't work, and Neither do the Special Coils.
The flippers do not work during game play, and all or some of the special coils (pop bumpers, slingshots) do not work either. If the fuses are Ok, check the chips at locations 12B and 12A (7402). Often the chip at 12B will fail, causing the flippers and the special coils to not work. The chip at 12B is also used to enable "blanking". If this chip has failed, often the CPU will not even boot properely.
Can anyone tell me where this 12B chip is? I am at a total loss.
Thankful for any help
