My brother and I just picked up a beautiful specimen of Solar Ride. It is a Gottlieb Sys 1. When we got it the displays were out and low and behold it was only a fuse. However the fuse is only half the problem. When turning the game on sometimes the displays don't come on at all. Sometimes they come on but I'll notice the balls in play light and credit lights are stuck at 00 and don't change when credit is added. Upon pushing the start button the displays light up all character lines from their default of 0s. The third option is they come on and the game works fine. The board looks like it has been replaced by a previous owner and I've noticed some solder missing off the battery mod he did. I'm thinking I have some bad solder somewhere else he might have done. What controls the displays? Am I on the right track?
After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.
