I made a little progress today i put the ar2 and game pcb in the cab,tested voltages etc so i switched it on and got a "P"on the game pcb,which i thought was a "PASS"
That's "PASS", correct.
firstly is the display on the monitor the correct one to show the game PCB has booted correctly?
No, there is something wrong. The game without laserdisc player is supposed to stay on the "Dragon's Lair - Please StandBy
" blue screen as shown in the first seconds of this video
.BTW, Bruno, when will we be able to embed Youtube videos in this forum?
Also i cannot easily workout were the laser disk player gets it power from?am i correct thinking it plugs into the power brick?
there is a spare slot on the brick although the plug on my laserdisk player is different.
Yes, there's a three pin connector on the Atari power block which delivers 115 V AC to supply the original laserdisc player.
its the VP 931/17 according to the label on the back 110v
Beware, the 22VP931/17 is a totally different player. It is NTSC only and has a custom parallel port to control it via computer. It was used in other games, such as Firefox, Freedom Fighter and Road Runner prototype.
