Coin Door back in the Cabinet:
Finally got Fathom home and running.
Few teething issues to sort out hopefully soon.
Player 2 display flickering and showing same as credit display
Multiple switches need adjusting.
Back targets sitting above play field, should they be flush when down?
Tilting often even on start up, but tilt switches all look and measure ok.
Any help appreciated.
Such a beautiful machine....
Quoted from TractorDoc:
The way it is wired in I want to think it is added on; are my suspicions correct or is this a recommended configuration? Only two terminals on the bridge rectifier are tied into the board. I am trying to study the schematics but thought it appropriate to ask here as well.
If you were an operator back in the day... the bridge rectifier helped save the
lamp circuitry... Bally power supply was notorious for blowing up the lamp bridge.
It looks more like a backup plan should the main bridge go bad.
I wired my auxiliary bridge rectifier in parallel with the main lamp bridge.
( less stress on the diodes )
I never had to cute the traces on the PCB; like what you have.
I hope this helps.
Bit of a long shot here but anyone redo their fathom cabinet and just have their old one sitting around collecting dust ultimately destined for the junkyard? I’m looking for an old empty fathom cab... I actually would take it flattened... as I really want the wood for another project and would prefer the look of a cab with some patina for lack of a better word rather than me painting some new plywood... which is what I’ll likely end up doing if I can’t find an old doner cab.
