I picked up this cab in Tuscany in the spring of 2011. I love this game! I hadn’t to make so much things, just cleaning, a monitor recap, remove some burns from the plexi. That’s all. Here is the PCB.

Troubleshooting… a whistle

4 April 2014

Yes. Yesterday the game didn’t start. Black screen and a whistle. This whistle is the same I usually heard the first second after switching on the game, but this time didn’t stop and the game didn’t boot. I checked the EPROM but everything was ok in that side. I used a working board provided by Alessio; in this way I could see a couple or RAM were faulty. As you can see in the pictures it uses 4027, these are 4096 x 1-BIT Dynamic RAMs The board started to work again but  with one difference: no more “crash” sound. Backtracking the sound circuit I could see the first relevant TTLs were two 74175 in position J3 and K3. Positions are arbitrary; in fact I don’t have any schematics and I drew the board layout on my own.
