while i'm at it, i'd like to add some molex connectors to my order as well. what is the standard size used on most arcade games? 0.062, 0.084 or 0.093?

Depends on the game I think

Check out Bob Roberts, he has size comparisons:

a small package from the usa has arrived



in it, the parts needed to replace that burned connector



question: can i remove the pins from the connector without cutting the wires or is this the only option i have? i'm just asking because i don't want to shorten the original wiring ...

back to this one, finally found the time and quiet to tackle the problem Tongue

after some testing, i found out that the individual pins could easily be removed with the help of a sharp thin object



to make sure i don't confuse some of the wires, i labeled them individually



though just some of the pins were burned, i replaced all of them just to make sure. here's the new connector arrow



let's find out if the operation yielded the desired result - time to plug in the game!!!

before you know it the others start to burn due to corosion/bad conductivity
did you clean the pins on the board too btw ?

thx etienne, sometimes i can be a smart thinker indeed Grin

as for the pins: are you talking about the ones where the new connector plugs onto? if that's the case, then the answer is YES, I CLEANED THEM!
