At least that tractor seems to run smoothly by the sound of it  Grin Grin Grin Grin

ROM or maybe 5V too low/high is my guess.

It's almost working man !

Stupid French plugs ! The Belgium machines often have these too.

Now go and fix that plug WELL you amateur !  (Look at the gap between the two halves ! T-t-t-t-t-t-t....do you want to get a shock ?  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

That's odd, in Belgium we have these plugs, the earth pin is in the wall socket:

Uhhh, I totally stand corrected Petieken, you are right !!!

The thing is that your ground pin is in the wall socket, but some (older) plugs ONLY have that hole to accept that pin, instead of the "edge" connectors like we (and the German) use. The plug you picture there is "all round" for both systems and what you usually see these days.

The Berzerks had this plug, but f.i. the Centi's had the older type.

That's right, I have seen some of these older plugs without side earth connection in the past.

first, excellent video! - and the drill trick worked i presume??!!

yeah, worked like charm, like a knife going through butter. thx a lot!

Now go and fix that plug WELL you amateur !  (Look at the gap between the two halves ! T-t-t-t-t-t-t....do you want to get a shock ?  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

i know, shame on me  Embarrassed! BUT: while installing the new plug, i lost the screw which held the two halves together, so i thought "screw it" and plugged it in like that. of course, that amateurish installation will be fixed later on.

Great trip !!!

 Wink

I'm not worry about what i seen on your vid!

AS many said

1) check the 5V
2) clean the board without the eprom (wash /soap)
3)let dry
4) brush gently the eprom chips
5) use KONTACT (product for electrical contact)
6) Plug again

7) Enjoy !!!

 Grin

I had quite the same problem with a IKARI board and that's what i done and it work fine now !!

Of course my method is not 100% working for all case but most of the time it works !!!

(here's is how i've done   http://lejrs.e-monsite.com/rubrique,ikari-resurrection,428058.html on my web site )

thx old school! the information on your website will hopefully come in handy - i'm always concerned about electronic components and water, but i will give it a try. parts of the board are really dirty ...

no time to clean the boards before the weekend though, this will have to wait!

Just kidding my friend, you should have seen how I mishandled the original Centi plugs just to test them....ask Gyruss/Ronald Reagen, Arcadecollection and Ckong Cheesy (God I hope they put on proper new one's !)

your welcome

 Cheesy

amazing how it shine after

if your water is hard you can rince with a non mineral water (water for iron) it prevent white spot on the board

and there's only one rule WAIT UNTIL IT's DRY !!!!! really dry (don't use hairdryer) co's too hot

You can use a hairdryer, "mine" has settings for temperature and if you swing it around a lot it won't heat up much.

I would only wash the board as a last resort though....jut MHO.

Never had a problem doing this, and I've done about 15-20 pcb's by now. Smiley
I just blow most of the water out with air and let them dry further near the heater for minimum 24 hours. When I'm lazy, they stay near the heater for a whole week. They sure are dry by then! Grin
