I agree that you should clean all the boards. I use deionized water, dish soap and a soft brush. After thoroughly brushing and cleaning of the dirt, I rinse the PCBs with deionized water many times, blow compressed air (especially under ICs and components) and leave them for about half a day in the sun (the next day I check them and blow air again before putting them back on).

I wish I could help you further, in my place I have a chip tester, a soldering-desoldering station and I can possibly find locally a new uln2803a and a socket for it... But you need these skills and tools to test and replace an IC.

you just needed to replace 31 bulbs and re-solder one connection? if that was the case, great score. congratulations!

I think he has some lamp matrix issues, not just bulbs.

Well not exactly. If you go through previous posts you will see that it had more issues to begin with and still not sure if the U35 transistor replacement will fix the neon problem. We shall see

Hello guys
As I said on a previous post I was about to replace Transistors U35 and U34 on the drive board to make the light saber work.
Unfortunately even after that the light saber still wasn't working.
Despite the fact that I had already checked the diodus for continuity I decided to by pass all the cables and try to make it work using external cables from the drive bord directly to the saber connector just to see what will happen. I was suprise when I finaly saw that it was working. So I thought cables are the problem. However before I replaced them I just thought what if is even more simple than that. So I cut them off and I by pass the connector that connected the drive board cables with the light saber cables and I joint them together directly.

.....and let there be light ✌✌✌✌✌✌

*Many thanks to pinside member gorgar1975. He was the one to replace the transistors and had the actual thought about bypassing the cables.

Added LEDs today. I had few issues with my order though missing few pieces. Any way even so I think the result is really nice so far.

Still need to fix this damn "Left drop target down is broken" thing.

Done!

My first ever restoration ✌

Many thanks to pinside members provato and gorgar1975. Also many thanks to the pinside forum and the members that created topics in the past about Star Wars Episode 1. It was a great help.

Until next time

Am I the only one who liked the "before" pictures better?

Well done Padawan.

Nah, I was thinking the same...

Quoted from mbwalker:

When you do get it, I'd be interested in some pictures of what you find out, how it cleaned up, if it works, etc. Might be an rather pristine game hiding under all that dust.
