I'm having trouble with my WOZ light boards. I believe I have an early original 5v non buffered board version with a build date of 9/19/13. I am experiencing a problem with the playfield leds locking on. The symptoms are as follows:
Upon boot up the playfield lights work but the H (led#086) in Haunted is super bright and flickering. Once powered on a while in attract mode or during game play a portion of lights will lock on. When the lights lock on I enter led test mode and cycle through all leds starting from Led001. I have no functioning leds from #001 up to and including #086 while in test mode. The first led to turn on while in test mode after a lock up is #087 or the A in Haunted. From #087 on up to the last led work fine while in test mode and also during game play after a lock up. I reseated all connectors on the Haunted Led board (pn#15-000018-05) and all the boards that connect to it. I am still having the issue. I think I have a problem with the haunted board based on my diagnostic work and the fact that one led (#086) is doing its own thing. But perhaps there is something more to try? Is there a way to remove this board from use and jumper around it or is that only for the small boards? The website says to call before ordering a new board as there are different renditions. It's basically $200 to order a new one. I have read others got a cheaper price by returning their old board? At 200$ I may just bite the bullet and do the 2.0 upgrade. What do people in the know think? If someone could advise me as to what I should do next it would be greatly appreciated. I absolutely love WOZ. It is a favorite among friends and family and we all want it back up and running. Thanks in advance for any help people!
