Missile Command

Missile under license…

10 April 2014

Yes, this is a Missile Command by… Sega.¬†Quite rare, made probably for Japanese market. I’ve to say I found it not in so bad conditions:

  • 5 buttons were not original
  • coin plate rusted
  • coin door missing
  • feet dirty/rusted
  • CPs dirty/rusted

Coin door

10 April 2014

First of all I remade the coin door using wood and vinyl.

Coins plate

10 April 2014

Coins plate had some rust. I printed a new overlay replacing the old paint (probably this plate had been repainted yet from blue to black)

Feet

Troubleshooting

10 April 2014

On Dec 14th, 2013 graphics became corrupted. I couldn’t understand exactly the error because all characters were corrupted. RAMs were ok so probably I had something wrong in ROMs circuit. I have another bootleg PCB but swapping all ROMs nothing changed. I decided to analyze the circuit dedicated to the ROMs selection.

In the end I found a faulty 74139 in P2.
