Yep Petieken, I know. I've seen lots of people do it. I still have my reservations though. Just my personal opinion.

I admit I was hesitant the first time I put a pcb in the dishwasher. After the drying and the first test I was very happy that it still worked Grin. The pcb's look brand new when they come out Smiley. Now after I've done all those pcb's I'm not worried about eventual damage anymore. There's of course always the first Smiley, let's hope not Grin.


If anyone ever wants to try this, this is how I do it:

I spray some instanet (window cleaner) on the pcb before starting, that dissolves the heavy grime, crud. Then I turn on the dishwasher at 50C. Then I stay with the dishwasher to stop it when the dry cycle starts (I've read the dry cycle is too hot sometimes for some components).

The most important thing is to make sure the pcb is bone dry before plugging it in again.

I knew it ! Smiley Wahoooo ! Let's skip the Berzerk rebuild and any other repair work and just play this (and WOW, and Paperboy and Toobin and.......all weekend  Grin Grin Grin

Seriously, looking forward to try this ! I played this (or a _very_ similar game on my Atari ST in the 90's but nothing beats a proper steering wheel ! Smiley

Interesting that they put in both Pokey(s) and Yamaha sound chips....guess the POKEYs did the sound effects (explosions etc) and the Yamaha the fancy (music?) stuf...

BIG boards by the way !

Congratulations this is a REAL steal !

in order to play WOW you must first fix the monitor, in order to play paperboy i must first try to piece together the 1246 parts of the steering assembly, in order to play toobin we simply have to hit the start buttons  Wink

Seriously, looking forward to try this ! I played this (or a _very_ similar game on my Atari ST in the 90's but nothing beats a proper steering wheel ! Smiley

in order to play championship sprint, we have to get it up into my apartment first. are you up for it shock? the control panel is BEAT and BENT, the left wheel is hard to turn (right one is ok though) and the wheels itself are DIRTY. the entire cp unit will have to be replaced, but i'm already working on that!  Wink

Congratulations this is a REAL steal !

20 euros for a working championship sprint - not too bad  Cool

Which monitor your machine is equipped with? I hope you are more lucky than me (mine is a "never-had-spare parts" Zenith WG  Cry)

it's a med-res monitor, but i don't know the exact details, because i've only got one key for the machine - but there are three locks. unfortunately, thos one key only opens the coin box door, not the door to the coin mechs and even worse not the back door. i have no idea what's inside that cabinet, but i expect a lot of dirt because the whole machine is damn dirty.

does anyone have a piece of advice on how to get those tubular locks open properly?
