Seems like this will be the 2nd documented BF restoration on pinside. Getting this pin was not an idea Time if you have not seen that I’m knees deep in a T2 restoration. I will attempt to move this along in addition to my T2. This game however needs a lot more work. It’s a European reimport. Has seem humid conditions due to rust and light panel mold. The playfield is in really nice shape however. The cab isn’t terrible. Needs some touch up but it’s structurally strong.
My method on this game is just to do some quick projects to make me feel happy and positive about this. Right now I’m replacing br1 and reworking the whole light panel. I then need to clean the dmd controller board and the screen.
This is all because I need to find out if the dmd works. There was a transformer hack I fixed. Verified all transformer voltages, and got mpu to power on and boot. No bongs from sound board. And no life from dmd. I know how sensitive they are to the 5v supply (I have a baywatch). It was a little low at the dmd controller hence looking at power supply board. The original bridge rectifier was gone and replace with a through hole version. Most of the pads for it too were destroyed. I think there is just enough to make solid electrical connections. Replaced with a 35a 400v version. Have bat cannon in tumbler to see how well these rusted/ white tarnish parts will fare out.
Wish me luck I really enjoy this game.
