Artwork / Where to buy laminate in Europe?
« on: September 14, 2018, 10:47:58 PM »
I have a Mario Bros cabinet I would like to laminate the sides on. They have found the perfect color match and laminate type here:
But, as always, it's american resellers.

Does anyone know any place in Europe where I can order this kind of laminate?

Thank you :)

Looking to buy these items  :D

Technical Area / Carriage bolts - Where to get?
« on: April 25, 2018, 04:01:35 PM »
I've had this problem multiple times. The carriage bolts to my (in this case) Mario Bros joysticks need to be changed. The problem is that it's IMPOSSIBLE to find size M4. Size M5 and larger is no problem.

Before I've ordered from Mikes Arcade but there has to be some place in Europe where you can get this?  :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\

Looking for a working audio transformer for my Mario Bros cabinet, Sanyo V630 or equivalent

Thank you

Technical Area / Pacman graphic glitch? (letters have a "tail")
« on: June 27, 2017, 12:16:28 PM »
Having some trouble with my newly purchased Pacman. If you zoom in the attached photo you can see that for example in GAME OVER, the E:s and the O have "tails", one pixel hanging down. It's no "bleed"-effect, the "tails" are perfectly sharp pixels.

I got the same one pixel "tail" on letters of all colors. Tested my Ms Pacman board on the same monitor and that looked perfect so it must be a PCB issue.

Someone's got any idea what it might be?

Thank you

Technical Area / Defender, no video on screen
« on: June 06, 2017, 06:25:04 PM »
I bought a Defender some time ago which was a DOA.

I have recapped all cards which made the G07 monitor alive again but still nothing on the screen. (I got video on the screen when I tried with another game so I know the monitor is working)

I've done som work with the PCB:s as well:

- Changed to a switched power supply (from arcadeshop), just to get the regular PS out of the equation

- Changed the ROM Board Ribbon Cable (to the one from arcadeshop)

- Changed the 4116 RAMs to 4164, as well as the 4164 adapter from arcadeshop

- Checked all ROM:s (all are OK)

Despite this, the problem is the same as it was before I did all of the above :(

I get raster on my monitor, but it shows nothing. The 4 LEDs on the ROM board are fully lit (no blinking) from the second I start the game.

+5V, -5V and 12V all seem to be ok


So, my question is, could anyone help me where I continue my trouble shooting. I am unfortunately stuck as of now :(

Thank you very much in advance

On the 29th of April, Swedens biggest retro game convention is back for the 6th time. Kralleman, Pinge & me have been organizers from the start but we're now taking a step back and will "only" manage the arcade section. We will have around 30 arcade cabinets next to around 30 pinball games. Everything on freeplay.

Even though this is a last minute call, if someone would happen to be able to come there, you're most welcome :)

We will ofc. post some photos in this thread afterwards

Technical Area / Defender Rom/Interface ribbon cables

I'm looking for replacements for the two ribbon cables in Defender. Have found them here:

Unfortunately $60 in shipping to Sweden. Does anyone know a place in Europe where I can get these cables?

Thank you

Technical Area / G07 low B+
« on: February 19, 2017, 04:52:09 PM »
Bought a G07 who seem to be completely dead. Recapped it as well as change of the flyback & the parts kit from Ian Kellog.

Now it's alive! However, the B+ is too low (should be 120)

First it was 113,7 when the G+ pot was turned all the way. I got a few tips & checked the resistors R908, R912 & FR901, they are all good.
The filter cap shows 612uF. Should be 680uF but I guess that's fine(?)

I also changed the B+ pot with a pot from a spare G07.

Now it shows 118,2V so quite an improvement. But is it good enough? Since I'm kinda new to all this I'm not quite sure what a low B+ can lead too & what the accepted error range is.

Technical Area / Burning roms (2716)
« on: January 20, 2017, 12:50:11 PM »
Was wondering if there's any knowledge of burning eproms on this forum.

I've never done it before & immediately faced problem when trying to burn some 2716's, tried with several ones.
After reading some threads it seems like not all eprom programmers aren't able to burn 2716's, can that be right? I have some cheap China crap:

Arcade Lifestyle / Restoration (Centipede cabaret)
« on: January 15, 2017, 10:24:13 AM »
People were requesting more posts in the forum so here's a contribution from me. If ppl find it interesting I will gladly keep the thread updated  :D

My friend Pinge found a poker cabinet that looked like an original Atari cabaret cabinet. He bought it & found out that it was an old Centipede, which they had totally destroyed by painting everything black, made holes in both the CP, side & top. Centipede pcb was gone as well as the original monitor

When everything was looked at, unfortunately the only thing that could be saved was the cabinet itself & the speaker, as well as the monitor. Since Pinge already has a million projects he sold it to me  :o

Said & done, my goal is to turn this cabinet back to its old glory. I've never done any restoration work before this so it will probably be a good lesson

Technical Area / Motorola M7000 transistors

Having a bit of trouble identifying the 3 transistors sitting on the sides of the M7000 chassi card.

They read







I have tried to cross reference replacements to these but can't find them anywhere. Would appreciate if someone could steer me in the right direction

Thank you

Technical Area / Cleaning arcade card board
« on: October 30, 2016, 07:38:45 PM »
As many 70s arcade cabinets, my newly bought Road Runner has cardboard cutouts for backgrounds. As the cabinet has probably stood in a warehouse for several years it's both dusty and filthy.

The cardboard is pretty difficult to replace which is why I'm asking you for some advice as how to clean it in the best. What methods can you recommend?

Thanks in advance
