    Many Thanks. May stop me getting excited when I think I've got new roms that are out there in the last year

    Hi All, Think 2 of these are different versions of roms out there. Don't think both roms for SN are in the rom dat although my copy is from Sept 2017 (hint hint). Sys80_nov18.zip

    Ahh found it over on DIF - "Club Casino V1.00" Looks like my rom 1 is different, other 4 have the same CRC32 ID.

    Good stuff wizard. I didn't find a match on the crc32 on 3 of the ROM rips so presumed the ROMs were not out there. I should of searched by machine name too. Which version of ROMs do you have?

    You seen the state of the ls138 chip? I'm not plugging it in like that, but the ROMs ripped ok and now shared. Not sure if the emulator supports 6k sru card with additional memory on board, but ROMs are in the first post to try. Early days for a vid but working on it edit looking like the individual data in and out are hard wired together on the card so should be able to knock up a bespoke board & use 6116 ram if needed. cleaned up rather well with only a tiny bit of rot to sort

    These ROMs don't seem to be in the ram dat. Lucky Casino_V8.zip

    Tales from Midibobs workshop, Sys80

    All impressive stuff but I still prefer the flexible version with 4 pins on a ribbon so it can do barcrest mpu3 or both system 80 & maybe others too. Bit like a cross between the rigid board and wire hookup on the video I uploaded problem is chucking a pile of money in to get a batch produced with no real demand yet. One day you'll get your money back and start to make on it assuming someone else isn't doing the same thing. Don't think you can copyright the circuit as it's not really original. Unless there is a benefit no one will replace working ram so your waiting for working ram to fail.

    Impact JPM tips

    Early CPU cards had no sockets for the ram. Then I've seen some with sockets with stickers saying not to put anything in the sockets. I've also seen CPU cards with proms in the sockets but don't know if any difference to those with stickers. You could try your luck

    Good stuff. Make sure the jumpers on the ROM card match the chips. It tells you which to use above the

    Impact JPM tips

    Mother board looks free of battery leak. Flip it over & check there are no pins bent & touching / shorting under the card sockets. Have seen one not run because of this storage error. Visual inspection is probably the first thing to do on any faulty board. Some faults can be seen and save hours of testing if you know what to look for. Conversely not all faults can be seen (or smelled) so don't expect wonders. Seen a few impact PSU with carosion on the 240 / 220 v switch. Nothing gets past it so nothing happens at the output. Switch can be disassembled, cleaned & put back together. Bit fidley but can get you running. Resistance test through switch will help diagnose.

    Need a good start point really to fix anything or you're just guessing. Good to have one working machine so you know good from bad. If you've parted a few machines you're probably going to have 4 bad CPU cards and unless really ulnluky a couple of ok mother boards. Front openers seem to survive battery leak better than vogue cabs as board is mounted on the back of the cab. Post some pictures of what you got mainly the CPU cards battery area and the front 2 sockets of the motherboards.

    JPM system 80 cpu board repair

    That makes for a universal conversion both Tec + maybe more. Can see how the PCB can be shrunk or made single sided, which will drive down cost so good for everyone. The CPU card now looks good. Looked an easier gig than the one I was working in the same timeframe. Could post up some pictures for a critical eye if you like?

    Mps2 psu help

    Welcome. MPS PSU "rifa" are listed here The rifas are all on the primary side so maybe blow the main fuse or an RCD if shorting. They don't tend to kill bits on the secondary side of the transformer. If you have other issues there may be more to it. Can be replaced with new or removed and replaced by an iec filter cor they gone up https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PS00-A0620-Mains-Filter-IEC-Power-Inlet-Panel-Mount-6A-250Vac-Z2274/253520953170?hash=item3b0706bf52:g:C74AAOSwu4hauQ~c For testing the PSU can run without them but any mains spikes can appear at the output maybe kill a board.
