Figure I'd ask a larger group of experts outside of the Dredd group on an issue I'm having with a newly acquired Judge Dredd. I've gone through all the Dredd posts and attempted to repair the ball trough reciever board by replacing (what appeared to be) faulty reciever led. I also swapped the old boards with a new set from Marco. The issue is a continuous loading of a second ball when starting a game. In one of my video links below, you will see the game doesn't want to end. The seller mentioned ball trough issues prior to "fixing" for sending a video. Now it's on me, and I accept the fact that this machine is not fully working even though it was advertised as such.
After swapping the trough boards and continued having the same trough #2 issue, I decided to reseat all the IDC wires to hopefully eliminate any continuity defects. No changes still.
I want to add that the cpu board battery region has some hacked-up wiring. Maybe this is causing the issues with extra balls loading during regular gameplay?
I really appreciate any help you guys can provide. Just ignore that line of backbox GI that's not working. Another surprise that was not disclosed in the sale.
