U20 appears to be bad. The wires are green orange and all of them are out. Matrix switch 31-38 not working going to J206-3 on the u20. This is on the cpu board. Help???

#52 5 years ago

J206 pin 3 only pulling 8 volts. Is that correct? The other pins are pulling 12 volts.

Yes. The U20 chip is on the MPU just below the battery holder. The manual will show you exactly where it is. I can't say, for sure, that this is your issue. All I can say is this chip can be damaged when something on the switch matrix is shorted out.

Williams saw this and started socketing this chip soon after Getaway. Your's is probably soldered directly to the board and, if removed, should be done with a proper desoldering tool like the Hakko 808. This is to help avoid damaging the plated through holes. Then, install a socket and a new chip. I can't remember what chip it is but the manual will tell you. Also, if you don't have a temperature controlled soldering iron, you should not be doing board work.

Note, if you've never done soldering work to a board before, I highly recommend you practice first. Replacing chips are not an easy thing to do.

You can also buy replacement MPU boards to avoid having to do this.

Thanks for the help. I believe your right. I hope the cpu isn't expensive. Thank you so much. I think you're talking about the CPU board.

#55 5 years ago

Williams called the CPU board, MPU. So he's talking about the same thing.

No prob. We determined it was the board. Nothing else it could be. We did 5 hrs of troubleshooting. I ordered through K'sArcades, rottendog. Should bring it back to life.

I used a rottendog board in my hs2. It worked well for me hopefully it will fix yours as well. It's a fun game for sure. Awesome light show on jackpot

#58 5 years ago

Yeah, the jackpot was cool when we were trying to diagnose the problem. I was pissed cause I wasn't playing it but rather cheating. Oh well. I hope it solves the issue.

Pins are expensive.

Your original board is not a hard fix but if you dont feel comfortable doing it send it to one the guys on here it would have been alot cheaper than getting a new one or If interested in recouping some money id be interested in purchasing your old board pm me if interested .

#60 5 years ago

Thanks man

i just replaced the U20 IC chip in mine last week. Less than a dollar in parts and 20 minutes of work. Just fix the board! it's a lot cheaper and what have you got to lose?

1 week later
#66 5 years ago

I put a new Rottendog board in Getaway today. Game is working perfect. Guess the original board went. Oh well, it happens.

#67 5 years ago

Good deal, been following along to see how things ended up...

#68 5 years ago

Yeah, it definitely was something on that old original board. Not sure, didn't go thru it. I am sure that a chip can be swapped out for a new one at minimal cost. I am not that tech savy, but as I said, someone that is familiar with this type of work could have it done in a few mins.

Game is great! No more changing bulbs over to LEDS with the power on. Expensive lesson.
