I just joined the club last week. I picked up Herk's project from above. I have a thread over on KLOV, but wanted to come on here and see if anyone may have any tips.
The suitcase was off putting incorrect voltages on the 9V line. It looks like the 5v voltage regulator was possibly taken out when it was powered on. There is definitely a short on the PCB.
When powered on w/ game board installed Fuse 1 blows. The reason the switching PS was not coming on was b/c of the short in the game board. PS turns on just fine until the PCB is installed.
If I am reading everything correctly, fuse 1 is the 9V line. Not a ton on there, but still having trouble sourcing the short. I installed a new VR and nothing changed. 9V comes in goes through C67, then the ferrite bead, then C106 and C108 to the VR then passes through C122 to TP. These all seem fine.
Anyway, I want to order up some parts to rebuild the suitcase, does anyone have a good source for the BR 3 and 4 on there? Also in case I can't sort this out on my own, does anyone on Pinside repair these?
