    Maygay EPOCH MPU repair

    I'd also be interested to see another repair thread, I find them fascinating, I just don't have the dexterity, patience or know how to even start repairing boards. Which is a shame as I have been given another Fruit Machine (Full Moon Fever) which looks like it might have a dead Epoch board. The hit and miss nature of the spare boards I have seen makes getting a replacement a bit of a risk. Pete

    Security Chip for MPU5 (Flash version)

    Hi, I have arrived back home finally, and the card that has arrived is as follows, I can see that it is labelled as bootstrap 1.21, Not sure which is the CPLD, so unsure is I have the correct version. I guess that I now need to try and track down the RTC TR09 as well. Pete

    Fascinating repair thread, you must have patience in buckets and a steady pair of hands for all that soldering.

    Security Chip for MPU5 (Flash version)

    Hi, Thanks for the replies, Before I purchased the card, I sent the seller a message with the photo's above, and he confirmed that they had the same type. I am away on business at the moment, I will have to wait until I get back home at the weekend to see what has been sent. Apologies that I can't answer more accurately, until the weekend, I will have to see if I have got the correct version with bootstrap v1.21 and CPLD 0.1 although I must admit I have no idea what these are, I assume that the bootstrap is some kind of self starting software such as used in bootstrapped USB pen drives etc Pete

    Security Chip for MPU5 (Flash version)

    Hi All, I know this request is quite a bit newer than 1995 but as I have seen some requests for e-Rio cards etc, I thought I'd risk and ask (if this is inappropriate or needs moving then please feel free) Does anybody happen to know where I might be able to source a specific security chip ( RTC TR09 ) I have a Star Wars a New Hope Barcrest Horizon cabinet that I am trying to resurrect. I have been able to source a new MPU 5 Game card for it as the one it should have was sold prior to me getting my hand on it. From what I can discover the £70 JP version needs to have the RTC TR09 chipe mentioned above and as shown in the attached image: Thanks in advance Pete

    Hello Folks

    Hi Everyone, New around these parts, so I thought I'd stop by and say hello. Hoping to build an emulator cabinet from scratch, to play the games I used to enjoy in my local.
