Hello all.. I have a Pinbot machine I have owned since 1994, and I am curious about what system 11 boardset is currently installed. Some information I have read says I should have 3 LED lights for the diagnostics, but I have a 7 segment led display instead. My game is having some weird issues and I want to diagnose it properly. Anyone able to shed some light on this? Thanks!

ps. I plan on doing a power supply cap refresh soon..

There are 4 different generations of system 11 boards. The 11, 11a, 11b, and 11c. Yours looks like it is the 11. This was the first generation, and it still had the led digit for the status board. They didn't go to the 3 led system untill 11a. Your machine should have come with an 11a, but with a few minor mods, the 11 board will work in place of an 11a.

What mods were done to make the 11 work instead of an 11a? What should I look out for?
