Hallo Louis Bee,

I am still finding my way around here. Just now I see your response ..

The board is of the Chico the Bandit game. The game is so nice, I played it only twice ,back in the nineties.

Looks smart. Not a UK game I guess. Not sure if the ROM has been dumped already. If not you'll need to back up your ROM and hope it reads ok 

 

One or two of the address lines run right by the battery. Problem is the 50v line runs near it to. Leakage from battery is conductive so you can end up with 50 volts where it doesn't belong, killing stuff.

 

No ROM and no available backup to blow new ROMs means the machine won't run even if you get a good board. It has the large display by the way. So fewer options open if you want to have the display running too.

Oh yeah sound card / ROMs. Guess the game uses sampled sound? You'll need them backed up too for a complete game too if not also backed up.
