    Epoch board not reading dips

    I think this version goes into more detail? shows some schematics in the photos. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Maygay-epoch-fruit-machine-master-technician-manual/323499569378?hash=item4b5213b0e2:g:sQUAAOSw-YZa3xr9:rk:1:pf:0 Is rather pricey though!

    Maygay EPOCH MPU repair

    That is insane, how do u solder the tiny pads? whats your setup? Those unpopulated battery area picks are very useful as you can clearly see/follow the dips shift reg clk/data/latch(i think) traces back to cpu and they go straight under the battery. So that must be where mine are damaged! Hopefully can get my dips working again

    Epoch board not reading dips

    Name and shame so others don't get burned! 2 ways to find epoch boards, buy cheap machines from eBay,fb market place. Or send faulty one to onestopspares for repair. Neither is cheap but are options Ill grab any local machine now just for the board! plus i really like taking them apart Thanks for the post ill have a read, has any one got the schematics? are they available? Or do i need to buy that epoch tech manual for £20

    Epoch board not reading dips

    wow that sucks, a perfect epoch board are hard to come by these days! its not the end of the world but i like having the machines set with free play enabled. all dips off means no free play. But can still coin it. Iv replaced the battery and will clean it best i can epoch with no dips is still better then no epoch

    Epoch board not reading dips

    Any one know much about the maygay/impulse epoch tech? I have a board which wont read the dips or some times they just show as floating (ie dip test just goes nuts) They are near the battery (sigh....) it appers they have 2 shift registers next to them so assume only a few traces go back to cpu/fpga to read them. Maybe the battery has damaged them? Any one tried repairing this area of the board or know where the shift registers traces go?

    Any one got machines upstairs?

    i actually take the machines up in bits lol, remove reels shelf, psu, hopper and then remove the whole top door(epoch only has power / data ribbon / reels loom). And then take the cab up (like half the weight now hehe) Its much easier pinball is much the same remove backbox / play field and all you got left is a wooden box hehe. Got a structural engineer coming out just to confirm its all ok but he said on the phone if the house was built right the general rule is 150k per square metre. So should be all good
