Blizzardrunner, I did a full teardown of this game a few months ago. 100+ photos here...
Quoted from blizzardrunner:
Anyone have any tips for removing the sound PROMs from the boards? I'm not sure if mine are just stuck fast or if there is a special tool I need or something. I cant get them to budge and I do not want to damage anything. Thanks!
Small jewelers screwdriver be sure to wedge between the ROM and the socket. Pry up a little bit first on one side then the other working both sides evenly until it comes free.
If that doesn't work and it can't be budged (though I can't remember the last time that happened to me) you probably need a new socket and would have to potentially desolder the socket and just get new socket and ROMs (though this is unlikely.)
Thanks viperrwk! Took me a little longer than expected to get to the machine again. I was thinking of doing just that but thought it best to ask first just in case. Also, thanks for that Crash, those pictures will be very helpful to me here real soon!
