Once worked on a Fire! cpu that was dead dead and was also burning a special sol and driver.

Put it on bench, put in LEON's, found the CPU problem, fixed, found the SOL problem fixed..

Put it in my Bugs Bunny to test,,, what can be described as Klingon is on the displays... Hmmmm...

Put it on bench, put in LEON, scoped out all display dirver pins to make sure none are floating or stuck high... Nothing obvious.

Put it in Bugs, Klingon still. Put original Bugs in Bugs, works fine...

Put it on the bench, put in LEON, re-verify everything a second time...

Drag it to Bugs, drag over scope, nothing obvious,,,

Then dawn broke over Maui.... Fire! = System 11, BUGS = System 11C. One uses the older 4 player display with credit/match and the newer uses the 2 long alpha/numeric segment displays... Fire! board was talking Klingon as far as the System 11C display knew...

DOH a couple of evenings flushed down the toilet.

I learned if your in a crappy mood and tired, you break more things than you fix, so have another beer and put down the soldering iron, go watch tv......
