Asteroids Restoration
« on: May 14, 2012, 10:56:21 AM »
Hey,

 I was starting an Asteroids Restauration some month ago. I got the Asteroids from cebulba. He had no time doing the restauration so he gave it in my hands.

This is my blog filtered on asteroids posts.

First I was working on the electronics. I got help from Speleo, Level42, Winni and some others  :spaceace: Thanks a lot :)

Current state of electronic work is :

- A borrowed PCB is working, my PCB is under repair.
- Deflection Board : Connectors resoldered, replaced some damaged potis. OK
- PSU : replaced a fuse. OK
- ARII Board : OK
- Harness : Replaced game connector
- Speaker : connected the harness ;) OK
- tube : some burns, but ok
- Game works :)

The scan is done and on the way to etienne :) Nevertheless I`ll try fist those dirt rubbers recommended by Andre. 8)

I`m still looking for a bezel adhensive foil. The control panel will replaced with the KLOV reproduction run. The buttons needs some cleaning, too.

Have fun :)

Not that I care a lot, but the correct English word is restoration ;)

Nice work, Jochen. Do you have to give the game back after you are finished, or will you get some time for gameplay on ths great game?

The deal was that I keep it in change of another cab or some other stuff. So it will stay in my collection and I`m really looking forward to play it once it`s finished :)

Today I`ve scanned the missing sticker in Etienne sticker collection and gave it to him for vectorizing.
