how cool is that! is it jungle KING or jungle HUNT? does your offer to have it still stand? if YES, easiest thing to do would be to drop it off at rav's place for a personal pickup - thx man!!! :-*
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

all the parts are ready - let's reassemble the cabinet 8)







after putting all the parts together, i'm using the patented "superully's power pressing method" to keep the cabinet in shape! ;D





one day later, i'm removing the weight to find something extremely beautiful underneath :-*









looks like a taito jungle cabinet to me, doesn't it? :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace:

started working on the wiring by checking the voltages going to the board and the monitor. unfortunately, i forgot that the wiring harness i'm using is NOT from the original cab, but from the usa - which means american voltages :-[.

here's the line filter assembly just behind the power cord :arrow:



because of my forgetfulness, i didn't use a step-down converter and when i plugged in the power plug, i heard a very loud bang and smoke was coming out of the line filter assembly: the metal oxide varistor (MOV) was blown! >:( :'(



the MOV is labeled as V150LA10A :arrow:



i checked the schematics and found the following :arrow:



obviously the V150LA10A varistor is used for a 120V line, but you can also use a varistor labeled V275LA15A for a 240V line!

questions:
- can i simply replace the blown varistor with the V275LA15A variant and then use the wiring harness without a 240V > 120V stepdown converter?
- i need to order replacements and of course rs online comes to my mind (free shipping). however, they do not carry the exact model so i was wondering whether any of these would work (differents amps and stuff). i have no experience with varistors, therefore i'd better ask ...
- is it possible that the line filter was blown as well or is the varistor there to protect it?

looking forward to your input, guys!
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

don't you just love the smell of exploded burned out electronics  ;D

back to the question..
on the line filter it says 115 - 250 v  so no problems there ,
as for the varistor, i dont know, but i guess your fine with those from RS, the values are higher, so they can withstand higher voltages and amps.

let the experts here speak about the varistor, then i can learn also something  ;D

EDIT:
Maybe this helps also a bit ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varistor

i have these here :



that is in fact the same, only for build in and use with a separate powercord
I can bring one for you to eurocade..
oh no wait, yuo want this to be as original as possible  :D

That is a standard line filter that is found in most PC power supplies.  You can gut an old PC power supply to get at it if you want to save some $$$.

Exactly !

and we all know who always has salvaged PC parts  ;D

Here a comparation for your convenience  ;)



its basicly the same as your "old" setup, only in a more modern housing.

Looking again at the big pic, it looks like i can open it....
hmmm  i wanna know whats inside  ;D

I'll be back later  ::)
