    Goodmorning everyone

    I apologize in advance for the bad translation but I know little English ...
    I have a pinball space hawks bell games ....
    does not emit the seventh flash .... a new mpu -35 (Dash) has been built ... but the problem continues ....
    I am attaching a link to the video of the fault ...
    The fuses are ok and the voltages are ok on the tp.
    All displays do not emit any numbers ... they are on....but emit nothing

    Thanks to all for your help

    https://youtube.com/shorts/Yr8LPweRXX0

    Someone can kindly turn me some photos in detail of the wiring of the tilt system .... and of the braids that go to the counter
    As photo the wires (Red / Yellow - White / Black - Red / Green- Yellow) cut by the old owner .....
    I would not want this to create problems that do not make me have the 7th flash .....

    Your video shows you are actually getting 7 LED flashes.
    When you power on you get the initial LED flicker.
    Then you get one LED flash, then a bit of a pause then a further six LED flashes (7 flashes in total).

    At this point, the MPU board has completed the power on self test. It should then enable interrupts and go into attract mode.
    If you connect the J1 connector to the MPU board do the playfield lamps flash?

    #3 9 days ago
    Quoted from Quench:

    Il tuo video mostra che stai effettivamente ricevendo 7 flash LED.
    All'accensione si ottiene lo sfarfallio iniziale del LED.
    Quindi si ottiene un lampeggio LED, quindi un po' di pausa, quindi altri sei lampeggi LED (7 lampeggi in totale).
    A questo punto, la scheda MPU ha completato l'autotest all'accensione. Dovrebbe quindi abilitare gli interrupt e passare alla modalità di attrazione.
    Se colleghi il connettore J1 alla scheda MPU, le spie del campo di gioco lampeggiano?

    hi and thanks for the help estinguere
    I thought the flashes must have been 1 - 7 thanks
    If I connect j1 nothing happens the playing field remains with some fixed lights and the displays on but without numbers
    What should I check ??

    #4 9 days ago

    What electronic equipment/skills do you have?

    The ROM board is connected to the MPU board on the upper J5 connector. Is that J5 connector clean and making good contact?
    It looks like your MPU board is stalling / crashing as it enters attract mode which is likely interrupt related.
    If you have a logic probe / oscilloscope check that you get pulsing activity on pin 18 of U10 (100Hz) and pin 40 of U11 (320-420Hz)

    #5 9 days ago
    Quoted from Quench:

    Che attrezzatura/competenze elettroniche possiedi?
    La scheda ROM è collegata alla scheda MPU sul connettore J5 superiore. Quel connettore J5 è pulito e ha un buon contatto?
    Sembra che la tua scheda MPU sia in stallo / si blocca quando entra in modalità di attrazione che è probabilmente correlata all'interruzione.
    Se si dispone di una sonda logica/oscilloscopio verificare di avere attività pulsante sul pin 18 di U10 (100Hz) e sul pin 40 di U11 (320-420Hz)

    I'm good with electronics
    the problem is that I don't have an oscilloscope I only have multimeters ... I put a new u10 ...... the mpu board is new (Dush 35) rebuilt ... I make a video of the new board .... I put that too that make displays

    thank you so much for your help

    Oops, double post.

    #7 8 days ago
    Quoted from Alessio88:

    I only have multimeters

    Multimeters aren't really suitable for diagnosing digital/logic circuits.
    Do you have access to a logic probe?
    Do you have an EPROM progammer? Because I would remove the ROM adapter and just use two 2732 EPROMs at U2 and U6 to run the game. The ROM adapter is an extra point of failure.

    With your multi-meter what voltage do you measure at:
    U10 pin 18
    U11 pin 40
    U11 pin 38

    Can you post some clear high resolution pictures of the MPU board? Best if you can take pictures outside in daylight.

    Quoted from Quench:

    I multimetri non sono particolarmente adatti per la diagnosi di circuiti digitali/logici.
    Hai accesso a una sonda logica?
    Hai un programmatore EPROM? Perché rimuoverei l'adattatore ROM e userei solo due EPROM 2732 su U2 e U6 per eseguire il gioco. L'adattatore ROM è un ulteriore punto di errore.
    Con il tuo multimetro a quale tensione misuri:
    U10 pin 18
    U11 pin 40
    U11 pin 38
    Puoi postare alcune immagini chiare ad alta risoluzione della scheda MPU? Meglio se puoi scattare foto all'aperto alla luce del giorno.

    Good Morning quench
    I have this values:

    U10 pin 18: 0,33 Vdc
    U11 pin 40: 4 Vdc
    U11 pin 38: 3,67 Vdc

    I attach photos in detail of the mpu ...
    The eprom programmer I bought it must arrive to me....
    I'll buy an oscilloscope tomorrow

    Quoted from Alessio88:

    U10 pin 18: 0,33 Vdc
    U11 pin 40: 4 Vdc
    U11 pin 38: 3,67 Vdc

    I measure:
    U10 pin 18: = 0.328 VDC
    U11 pin 40: = 4.45 VDC
    U11 pin 38: = 4.83 VDC

    But my readings are from a 6 digit game so my U11 readings will be a bit different to yours. For the moment let's assume your readings are ok.

    Before you buy an oscilloscope, I see you have a Chinese counterfeit PCD5101 chip at U8 and we have seen those cause some strange problems. Do you have any spares you can change it with?

    BTW, the capacitor at C16 near the U12 chip, you must change it to a polyester type. The ceramic types are temperature unstable and will cause the 555 U12 timer chip output frequency to vary.

    Quoted from Quench:

    Misuro : U10 pin 18: = 0,328 VDC
    U11 pin 40: = 4,45 VDC
    U11 pin 38: = 4,83 VDC
    Ma le mie letture provengono da un gioco a 6 cifre, quindi le mie letture U11 saranno un po' diverse dalle tue. Per il momento supponiamo che le tue letture siano ok.
    Prima di acquistare un oscilloscopio, vedo che hai un chip PCD5101 contraffatto cinese su U8 e abbiamo visto che causa alcuni strani problemi. Hai qualche ricambio con cui puoi cambiarlo?
    A proposito, il condensatore a C16 vicino al chip U12, devi cambiarlo in un tipo di poliestere. I tipi in ceramica sono instabili alla temperatura e faranno variare la frequenza di uscita del chip del timer 555 U12.

    Hi, try any other of your same 5101 chips. Some of them may be ok. Lets see if things change.

    These are the last lot of PCD5101P I bought from China one year ago which were original Philips parts:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33015720318.html

    But there is no guarantee they will send you original parts anymore because the fake ones are now common in China. The one shown in the picture with the white print marking is genuine. Any you see with dark etched brown marking are fake.

    I replaced c16 and changed the 5101 of another brand ... the defect comes out the same .... do you think the eprom may be out of order?

    This eprom is ok for my pinball???

    Quoted from Alessio88:

    do you think the eprom may be out of order?

    As you may be aware, Space Hawks is a bootleg of Ballys "Cybernaut". Bell copied the Cybernaut ROM but made small changes, including disabling the ROM test!
    So right now your ROM test is being skipped on power-up meaning you have no idea if the ROM is actually good or bad. Or it could be a problem with the ROM board, or J5 connector or maybe something totally different.

    Can you post some very clear pictures of the ROM EX3 board both back and front. If you can take the pictures outdoors in daylight the pictures will be much clearer.

    I attach photos of the bord....the pin sochet are new.....

    I need to closer inspect the ROM board pictures so will come back later.

    At the moment I can only see your problem happening for one of two reasons.

    1) After the power on tests, the software enables hardware interrupts which are normally used to flash playfield lights and show numbers on the displays. So the CPU at U9 might not be seeing these interrupts. This is pin 4 of U9 but it maybe hard to measure with the ROM board covering the CPU.

    2) After the power on tests, the software jumps from one part of the ROM to the other part of the ROM using address line A14 at pin 33 of connector J5. So there could be a problem with this pin or the EPROM maybe corrupt.

    If you are able, measure the voltage on:
    CPU U9 chip pin 4 (Interrupt request signal at the CPU)
    ROM board EPROM chip pin 23 (Address line A14)

    Pin 23 J5: 2.60vdc

    #17 6 days ago
    Quoted from Alessio88:

    Pin 4 u9: 0.90V DC

    Hi,
    You measured this 0.9V at U9 pin 4 with the ROM board installed right?
    If you measured this voltage during the power on test, then please remeasure it after the 7th LED flash.
    If you already measured it after the 7th LED flash, then note: you previously measured 3.67V at U11 pin 38. This signal goes to U10 pin 38 and then to the CPU at U9 pin 4 which you now measured at 0.9V
    These three pins must all measure the same since they are the same signal. If they don't equal you have an open circuit maybe at the U9 socket where pin 4 is.

    Quoted from Alessio88:

    Pin 23 J5: 2.60vdc

    Sorry I wasn't clear on this, I need to know the voltage on pin 23 of the actual 28 pin EPROM chip on the ROM board. See below: Please measure its voltage during the power on LED flashing, and after the last 7th LED flash. Report both voltage measurements.

    Good Morning

    I apologize last night I had my daughter in the middle and I read the pins upside down ... uff .... today I'm alone ..... I double-checked all the tensions on the points you indicated (this time the right ones)

    U9 Pin 4: 2,20 Vdc

    #19 6 days ago
    Quoted from Alessio88:

    U9 Pin 4: 2,20 Vdc

    2.2V seems rather low.
    If possible can you measure this pin while the machine is booting (performing the LED flashes) and another measurement after the 7th LED flash?

    Same story with pin 23 of the EPROM, one voltage measurement during boot-up and another measurement after the 7th LED flash.

    Need to understand what the voltage on these two signals is doing during power on test boot, and after the 7th LED flash to see if they change.

    ok I checked the voltages both during and not:

    During 7 Flash: Finish Flash:

    U10 P38: 0,062Vdc ==== 2,20 Vdc
    U11 P38: 0,062 Vdc ==== 2,20 Vdc
    Epr P23: oscillates 2,70-3,20 Vdc ==== 1,90 Vdc
    U9 P4 : 0,062 ==== 2,2o Vdc

    now the audio is no longer heard.....

    As you see this is a complex problem.
    Have you tried the easy things of replacing all the socketed chips (6800, 6810, 2x 6821) with good ones?

    Checked my game to look at the interrupt signal voltage from power-on til after the 3rd LED flash then after the 7th LED flash:
    Power-on --> 3rd LED flash --> 7th LED flash:
    U11 Pin38: 4.9V --> 0.06V --> 4.83V

    Are you still expecting to receive an EPROM programmer? Will it come with a UV eraser and some spare 2732 EPROMs?

    Do you have a spare -35 MPU board?

    This all depends on the problem. Does U11 pin 38 show 5 volts when you power-up until the 3rd LED flash?

    When you say "another mpu", do you mean with another 6800 CPU chip installed on this MPU board, or do you mean another complete original Bally MPU board? If you mean another Bally MPU board, does it have all the original chips on it?

    I’ve two MPU boards, the first one was an original Bally MPU board, with the same issue; while the second one (that I’m using now) is a Dash-35.

    On both boards, the CPUs are not original.

    #27 4 days ago

    Ok, so since the problem happens with two MPU boards then they are not the problem. I guess the problem is likely with the ROM "MEM EX3" board connected to J5.
    If you purchased an EPROM programmer and some blank 2732 EPROMs, you can use them direct on the MPU board at U2 and U6 and this will allow you to discard the ROM MEM EX3 board. I can even fix the Space Hawk ROM code so the ROM test is not skipped anymore.

    Did you check the important test point voltages on the MPU board?
    TP2 should be around 14VDC
    TP5 should be around 5.1VDC
    TP3 should be around 21VDC

    Check your local ebay for 2732.
    When will your new EPROM programmer arrive? You can use the programmer to test the EPROM on the MEM EX3 ROM board.

    BTW those MPU board voltage measurements are good.

    5PCS D2732A D2732 EPROM 4K x 8 IC Intel Corporation CDIP - 24

    #31 3 days ago

    This is a little complicated because these EPROMs are old technology no longer manufactured and new EPROM programmers do not support them well.

    Many 2732 EPROMs need 21 VDC to be programmed.

    The TL866II Plus EPROM programmer only supports maximum of 18 VDC. This means it has trouble programming 21V EPROMs.

    There are some 2732 EPROM which can be programmed at 12.75 VDC and these are the 2732 you should look for. Here is an example in Europe ebay:
    ebay.com link: itm
    You can see on the chip in the first picture it is marked "PGM=12.75V". This is a National Semiconductor chip.
    BUT, this seller also may send ST brand 21V program parts. You must ask him if he has the "National Semiconductors NMC27C32BQ200" parts in stock before ordering.

    Basically:
    2732 needs 25V programming
    2732A needs 21V programming
    2732B needs 12.75V programming

    This seller also shows pictures of some National Semiconductor 2732 and 2732B parts, but you must first ask if he has the 12.75V PGM parts in stock.
    ebay.com link: itm
    From his pictures:
    NMC27C32Q-45 needs 25V programming
    NMC27C32Q-35 needs 25V programming
    NMC27C32BQ-200 needs 12.75V programming <-- Good for your programmer
    NMC27C32BQ-150 needs 12.75V programming <-- Good for your programmer

    The "D2732A D2732 EPROM 4K x 8 IC Intel Corporation CDIP - 24" need 21V for programming. They are not good for your EPROM programmer.

    Eprom on the MEM-EX3 adapter is a 2764 (8Kb) not a 2732 (4kb)

    #33 2 days ago
    Quoted from flip78:

    Eprom on the MEM-EX3 adapter is a 2764 (8Kb) not a 2732 (4kb)

    Yes, the point was to eliminate the MEM EX3 board and use standard 2732 on the MPU board at U2 and U6 like all other Bally.

    Alessio88 if you have received your TL866II+ programmer, can you please read the 2764 EPROM from the MEM EX3 board and post the data somewhere for us to check if it's good? Be careful to insert the 2764 correctly in the programmer.

    Yes this option is also OK, no more MEM-EX3 !
    But this need to add holder for U2 and U6 (Why theses are not populated on twobits dash35 board ?) and probably change jumpers to accept 2 * 2732 ...
    To my opinion it's easier to fix the MEM-EX3 board

    Known checksum for 2764 :
    Checksum(5238)
    Crc32(0xF070B2C3)

    God Morning
    the programmer arrived and I took a look at my eprom m2764 .... I saved the data found above from the tests carried out by the programmer the eprom is working (I don't know how reliable its test is)

    Hi,
    The ROM has some corruption. There are some bits stuck high.
    Do you have an EPROM eraser?
    An empty EPROM has all data bits high. When you program it, the bits are programmed low.

    If you do not have an EPROM programmer, you can try to reprogram that 2764 chip to fix those incorrect high bits. You will need to disable blank check in the MiniPro software to do this.

    If you do have an EPROM programmer then better if you erase the your 2764 and perform a full reprogram.

    Here you can find the Space Hawks 2764 EPROM data you need:
