Just acquired a JP a couple weeks ago and it came with a couple nicely burned connectors along with a hack that I’m kicking myself for missing when inspecting before purchase. So my question is, has anyone encountered this on the PPB board before? At first I thought they’d just bypassed the connectors because they didn’t have a replacement, so I rebuilt the two (CN8 on the power supply & J5 on the PPB board) while cutting and taping the hack wires they used to run to the fuses on the PPB. After this, the playfield GI all stopped working. Let me disclose that the back of J5 looks a little toasty and I’m guessing that’s why they did this in the first place. Also want to mention that I re heated the solder on the back of the board as well. The one problem it did solve was the lower GI in the back box started working. Any help would be greatly appreciated but I’m thinking I may need a new PPB board. Thanks.
Quoted from woody24:
Just go a size smaller on the rubber. Thats what I did on mine. The chart isn't accurate to begin with. It lists rubbers that were never installed on the final game. (up around the Trex). So I took that as any other rubbers listed could be wrong.
I kinda wish the guy who bought the NOS did a teardown and cataloged all the rubbers.
As I’m figuring out while shopping mine. The list is totally inaccurate for sure.
