Just got this from a friend who doesn't have a clue about pinballs. Machine was working, and he tried to install some LED strips and things went south after that. He started moving wires and connectors around and the board started to fry. I haven't turned the game on yet, and just pulled the driver board out to look at it closer. I checked all fuses and bridges.

1. F106. He moved this from pin 5 to either pin 1-3. This is when c11 started smoking and blew its top. He got smart and finally stopped messing with it.

2. Only fuse F116 is blown.

Anything else to check knowing the problems listed above?

3. J120. I think he moved a couple of wires to different pins. I'll check the schematics, but what wire should be on what pin? Looks like the connector and header need replaced.

4. What is the best way to fix j115? I'll install header pins, but what about the nut wings? Do you replace that with a square molex connector or just solder the wires and cover with heatshrink then put the proper 12-pin connector on?

Any other advice?

T2 commonly burns the GI headers.
Here's a bunch of info to guide you...

Parts you need can be found here:
The parts are listed in the PinWiki article.

That's quite a hack. Good thing you separated that game from the prior owner before he destroyed it.

Replacing the blown cap isn't trivial, and if you haven't done it before, it's best to send the board to a pro.
If you'd like, I can take care off all the board related issues. Drop me a PM if I can help.

Got the parts and installed them today. Game is at least working now. I need to figure out what is and isn't working next. Will probably post for more help in a bit, but I did noticed the slingshots were not working.

Connect J210, it will work then.
