Hey Guys, I have two game plan games and both are in need of MPUs. Does anyone have one or two that I can buy? I'd really like to get one or both back up and running. I'm just obsessed with these game plan games and miss them

Here's a source for a reproduction board, but you may have to wait a while: http://pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Gameplan_Repair#MPU

Post a WTB post...you might get lucky and find someone who has one in a parts pile somewhere. In this case, expect that it will need repairs.

Do you have the MPUs for your games, or are they missing? If they are non-functional or have battery damage, there are a few folks who can repair them.

Additionally, there is a repair guide here if you can do board work on your own: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/game-plan-mpu-repair-a-shotgun-guide-w-pix

I sent an email to Jim, hopefully I am able to get on the list. My one board just won't work at all, I don't see acid damage but who knows. The Coney Island I haven't even tried but half the chips were missing.

Both sound repairable, especially if there's no battery damage. Replacing components is an easy process on a clean board. You might have better luck with a repair, and it could be less expensive. With shipping, the replacement MPU is nearly $300 now.

I might suggest posting another thread asking about gameplan MPU repair services.

Message Viperrwk on here. He is one of the few that works on them. He worked on mine and did a great job. Was very friendly and reasonably priced!
