that`s a very nice set up you have there and great skills in building your cabinets for the console and tv set up  ;D ;D

an interesting read thanks for posting did i notice the in the bottom of that cabinet the various voltage selection plugs don`t usually see them all together these days  ;D

that takes me back i was atari employee back in 80 -82 the 2600 was terrible for dry joints on the modulator and terrible design where the power socket was soldered to the board but it was a good time working for them i was 17 years old back then lots of good memories  :)

hi all as above looking for a working sega outrun boardset  :-[

Uh, I have just noticed that I have not updated this post for years!

I don't want you to think that those two games have been trashed: they are fully working now!
In particular, I had the opportunity to work on them starting from this summer.

WGP was the first of the line because it was 90% working and not too much work was predicted. After a good cleaning i replaced the (linear) not working secondary PSU with a switching PSU. As it was juicing the rumble motor, this (and reconnecting the cables) was all it needed to have it back to work. Another problem was the audio: only one channel was working. After some google i noticed that TAITO's are known for audio problem caused by the op-amp going bad. Piggybacked the old IC and the channel started working right after... yes! Last problem was mechanical :the springs that keep the wheel in place where broken, so i had to replace them.

Race Drivin' was another story: i knew it had some board problem, mechanical and the monitor had color issues. This board is incredible: it gives you the position of defective RAMs and you can bet that replacing them the pcb will work! I had 2 defective VRAMs and by replacing them the PCB was fixed! I would never be able to fix it without those self test, great work ATARI! While doing this, the monitor died. It had xray shutdown, but trying to fix it i shorted the EAT (and i am not a noob on this :(). Being a zenith K7000 (K7000a) i had to replace it. Found that MTC9110 is a good replacement for those (you need to swap the neckboard socket and place a higher value resistor in series with the filament, 2.2 ohm if i remember well, i wrote this somewhere else so if someone need the correct value i can source it and replace some connector) and it really is :)
Some additional work (greasing of the pedals, cleaning of the cab, a good revision of the "new" monitor) and now it works great!

I have some pic on the phone, let me see if i can upload them...

Did you have a diagram  of the power supply wiring as im in the same situation needing to replace the board power supply with a switcher thank you  ;D
