Quoted from vec-tor:

Is the cabinet switches gold contacts?
Is the power hold circuitry working on the solid state board?

Not sure, how do I check the hold circuit?

Quoted from Inkochnito:

Cold solder joints at the SSFB?

Always possible, but worked fine before...

Thinking about selling my DE Powerboard from my JP. What's something like this worth? I pulled it out and replaced it with an Xpin one to be more future proof. There was an issue with the sound cutting out that I could never track down, and someone suggested just replacing the powerboard.

The only visible issue I see is that one of the pins looks a little toasty.

This is my Data east line-up, I doubt any of these will ever leave. When I first got into pinball I always looked down on DE games and they never stayed long but in the last 5 years or so have revisited them with a newfound appreciation, helped by Pinsound

Uhh...you know a ColorDMD is available for all 5 of them? Get started. Congrats on your row of 5 there. Definitely some good DE titles.

Do you know what, I kind of like the original, I have colour displays in my MM, Shadow and TAFG but apart from that I like it original, sorry

[EDIT: Someone very helpful on the Data East Facebook Group helped out]

But if anyone's parting one out I've got some parts I'm in search of! Specifically desperate for the plastic underneath the yellow wire ramp.

Did you ever resolve this? I have a DE Playboy, replaced the sound rom chips, but I only get barely audible distorted voice and no music and lots of loud humming. Anyone have some help for a newbie? thx

Check and verify clean power....both DC levels and AC ripple. Any questionable out of spec power should be investigated.
Try reseating, checking continuity, or better yet - replacement - of the ribbon cable between the MPU and sound board.
Check all sockets, make sure no damage, contamination...replace any questionable sockets. Should be clean and shiny sockets as well as the pins on the ICs.
If none of the above, you'll probably need an oscilloscope and advanced audio troubleshooting techniques or enlist the help of a professional.

Hey gang. New pin owner. Didn't read all 23 pages but many. Having a Star Wars Power issue. Replaced the power board and have now discovered it's and issue at the fuse down in the volume control box. It's finicky and had to be twisted in just right for the machine to power on. It has since gotten extremely worse. The bottom of the fuse holder will literally catch on fire if turned on. Holy he'll. What do I do?

Repair it immediately! That game is unsafe. Nobody needs a fire. At minimum you are going to need a new fuse holder and mains power cable, probably replace the power switch and line filter as well. If you can't or don't want to, please enlist professional assistance.

Replace the fuse holder.

#1119 5 days ago
Quoted from Bakerman:

Replace the fuse holder.

Id argue to replace the filter, fuse holder, at the same time.

#1120 4 days ago

If it's getting hot, I'd disconnect everything and do some voltage checks as well.

#1121 4 days ago

I'd sell it, and simply state in the ad "it just needs a fuse"...

Why?

#1123 4 days ago

Seems like that whole system of power in, filter, fuse holder were all in a rough enough shape that one part of it caught fire. I'd imagine the other parts of that circuit were messed with as well

I imagine that I would only replace parts that need replacing.

Eh, its a $6 filter and your pin was already on fire. Really up to you. Post the results after you fix the power box.

Noy my pin. Not my powerbox.
