    Quoted from mikeflan:

    Hi folks -
    I know, I know - we're talking pinball here, there are no permanent fizes....

    *looks at thread title*

    NO. It is not a permanent solution. I had a random reset problem on my TAF that took me a PCS, 1 in town move, 1 divorce, and a deed in lieu of foreclosure before I got it (July 2016 to March 2018). I went through Pinwikis "reset issue" list line for line. I finally got it by replacing all the ribbon cables, the MPU board, and an aftermarket DMD controller board all at once as I had done everything....and I mean EVERYTHING else. And my game had one of these daughterboards in it.

    It is a bandaid. A very well made, thought through bandaid. And i mean that in a complimentary manner, but my game was to the point it did not help it, and sooner or later, everyone who installs one and ignores the problem will be where I was.

    Do it right. If you know the problem is isolated to a board, pull the board, send it to someone here that does solid work, wait 1 week to 2 months, suck it up and play your other games. When you get your board back, you know it is sound, and that is a great peace of mind!

    *just saw that it is a location game*

    That's even more of a reason to fix it. When I find a location game with a reset issue, that is a one and done for me. You don't want your games getting that reputation.

    Quoted from PtownPin:

    This looks like a great add on....Im wondering if I should get one for my TZ?

    As a quick fix, yes.

    In the long term, no.

    You will be disappointed after enough time passes. Just a matter of time. Fix the original source of the problem.
