Yes, I have researched the issue, no I did not find a solution yet. World Cup Soccer 1994
Here is the problem: The F116 fuse blows after a few moments of actual game play. In test mode, all of the 12 volt motors work with no apparent issues. If I unplug the 12 volt motor for the soccer ball from the motor controller board, I no longer blow the fuse. The voltage to the motor is 14.4 volts.
While I do not have a spec for the chips on the controller board, nothing diode tested unusual. I removed the soccer ball motor from the gear box. I still blew a fuse. All of my transistors on power driver board tested fine, along with the Bridge rectifier and capacitor.
I have found no one come up with a definitive fix for this. It seems everyone just unlplugs the motor for the soccer ball and plays.
i dont want to just throw parts at it with out a definitive reason. Although a new controller board and motor are not terribly expensive.
If anyone has any insight or perhaps something I have missed, assistance would be appreciated.
