Hi folks -
I know, I know - we're talking pinball here, there are no permanent fixes. And if you aren't getting a solid 5 volts to the MPU, you're bound for problems. That said, with the Kahr daughterboard, my problem has gone away. I was getting around 4.7 volts on the MPU without, and a steady 5.013 with.
My question is, rather than spend the $100+ to get the board repaired the way it should, along with the time involved of it being out of the line up and/or off location, will the Kahr keep working? Or is it a stop gap measure/time bomb that will fail sooner rather than later. I'd sure rather spend the $25 bucks on the daughterboard than the c-note plus shipping back and forth.
All opinions are welcome. FWIW, it's a beater of a WCS 94 that has had a rough life. If it can limp along on location making $40 a week for a year or two with the Kahr board - I'll be happy.
