  1. So if your machine works but resets or shuts down here is the likely problem.First replace the voltage reg and 3 large caps in supply.If any plugs are burnt or melted replace them.Mainly replace all crimp connectors to power supply pcb on underside.Then top side from psu to main loom then the one to the board..These handle some power and amps and at 30+ year old the connectors flatten and loose their spring.So they get hot,expand and make bad contact.But normally work when first plugged in.simple cheap fix that takes about 2 hours max to illiminate unreliability.

    Old coinage

    Look on ebay at the english coin company they have loads.think its all one with no gaps in wording though
  7. Seems a lack of this,and they are certainly up and coming judging by the prices.So i have started this thread so all general people like me and many others can try and fix boards.Like if it dont boot what might it be.We dont all have scopes or logic probes and even if we did what are looking for.So any help and tips in english will be great,im fixing one soon for my machine and will be posting what i do.Im hoping this way we can all work out the weak points and all have a go our selves.

    Old coinage

    You can bulk buy from ebay like i have,but they are not cheap.most are double face value at least.Cost me me a fortune to fill my warlord with 10p and 50p as its a clubber.And cost a good few quid to fill gemini jack and my peter simper on old 5p.But deffo old coins are much better

    Impact Metal Cover Wanted!

    Make a copy with 4 or 5mm ply.Use wood glue to hold it then spray silver so it looks like metal.Easy if you have one to copy or get measurements.
