I picked up a Night Moves that did not boot. Took one look at the acidy mess of the CPU board and ordered a Swemmer replacement. Repinned any acidy connectors and installed the Swemmer board. Solenoids on the pop bumpers were crispy and swollen, replaced the solenoids. Game fired up, played a few games, but I was in the process of moving so didn't really touch it for a few months.
A few months later, moved to the game to its new location, still worked. Played like crap because it needed to be shopped but it worked.
After a few months of playing it here and there, I got around to doing a very basic shop. New rubber, cleaning, it's a simplistic game to shop.
After the shop played two games, game was playing awesome. Game three, game seemed locked up. Went into switch test and confirmed that I lost 3 rows of switches. Since I have the Swemmer CPU board everything is socketed, replaced the two 7404 chips that handle the switch rows Z11 and Z12.
Put the CPU board back in, game no longer boots, outhole solenoid is locked on, MOVES insert is stuck bright.
I tested the driver board transistors, everything tested good. Replaced the transistors anyway, did not fix the issue. Bought a rotten dog driver board, probably should have figured that wouldn't fix the issue and it didn't.
The game doesn't boot, the outhole solenoid is locked on, the MOVES insert is stuck bright, and I actually have no idea what to do next.
Taking a step back and using my head, I have to assume the problem is with the CPU board, since the game isn't booting, and things got worse after I installed the 7404 chips. I did try and put the original 7404 chips back in, still the same, no boot and stuck on.
All voltages tested good at all the boards.
Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
