Hi all this is my first post and Phoenix is my first pin, recently bought this machine and have done a few things to it to help make it more reliable, machine was working when I brought it home, when powered up it would go into audit mode, battery holder was corroded but there wasnt visible alkaline damage to the boards or chips, I could advance out of audit mode using the advance button on the coin door and then be able to start and play games, which I did of course,I have recapped the power supply, there is one cap I am waiting on yet though and repinned the molex connector from the transformer to the power supply as well, I do have fuse holders to put in for the bridge rectifier as well.
I understand the board to board connectors can be an issue, i have ordered these as well, just havent arrived yet, I did reflow all the connectors on both boards as well, I also have the caps for sound board as well just havent got to that yet.one of the displays is not working either but I have a replacement coming as well. I played it Sunday afternoon and then went to play it Monday evening but it wont come out of audit mode now, I have since hooked a temporary remote battery holder hoping that would help but it still wont come out, I am going to try to link 2 short videos to show what it is doing, I did receive new game roms from pinballrom.com today and tried replacing the roms with no change, the prom that he sent is the one that replaces both mine and uses IC14, can I just remove both of mine and just use his at IC14 or is there more to it than that. Any help would be appreciated and I have gone through a lot of the information available on this site. Thanks Gerald
