Hey,

I’m the proud owner of a 95 JPM Monopoly 60th Anniversary I acquired following years playing it in arcades along with Roller Coaster, Casino Crazy and Indiana Jones. I have owned it for 10+ years but has been out of regular action since I got married 6 years ago. Unfortunately it got relegated to the garage. I’m looking for some assistance to get it back working as it has developed a fault :( It’s driving me crazy now I have a space to use it that it’s poorly!

Forgot to mention I believe the Impact processor board is faulty with the old battery attached.the LED on the mothboard does not stop flashing. Cash waiting for someone who can fix it for me!

Processor is clean so probably working I’d recommend getting battery of it. Got the same machines myself (Indy, Monopoly, Casino Crazy club and give us a break club) what led is is flashing is it reset or status?

Hi and thanks, it’s the reset led from memory. Where could I get a battery? I know these cause a lot of issues and have seen people remove batteries completely. Not sure I’m that confident in my soldering ability and don’t have any testing kit mind.

Your better to just wire the battery of, But the machine runs without a battery.. but I don’t think it’s the processor that’s at fault here, try resetting your Rom card, and sound card for starters

Hi there. The battery is just there as a supply for the memory during power down. It won't stop it booting up.

It does look amazingly clean but could still be a fault with the voltage regulator. Or other faults elsewhere. Firstly have a look at the leds on the psu... are they all lit?

Does your motherboard have 2 leds... one for status one for reset?

I am busssssy but if no one else offers I can test your Cpu card/and your Eproms if no one else offers. I'm low on motherboards atm.... so can't supply one if it's that.

Great thanks. I’m pretty sure psu leds are all lit. Will take a look again this week in the light. Will also confirm what happens to the status and reset. Pretty sure one is on all the time and other just keeps flashing. If it comes to it I could remove motherboard and all cards if you are able to test/repair. Would be happy to pay for it. Cheers

Yes meant reseat sorry. Ok you’ll be looking to get the processor card tested then mate, may be faulty it’s bound to be something simple on it cause there’s no damage

I can test them for you if needed, and have got spare motherboards

@Stick2000probably a stupid thing to say but make sure to wait for a few minutes sometimes impacts don’t work when there cold!

But it is odd that reset would flash usually that indicates everything is working

That's the status LED that flashes normally mate. Sounds like he's got a really early motherboard with the reset LED fitted too so equally could be that lit.

Did it get to the Alarm (ram clear) the first time you tried it?

Listen out for a speaker click/noise when you first plug it in too... might not seem important but a duff sound card can stop impact booting too. Much more likely to be the Cpu card, motherboard, then Eproms IMA

Few of mine got both leds to. A lot of them got modded to 1 led it seems

The alarm does sound when you switch it on constantly even with door closed I think.. Will do some more tests and report back. Might be a few days, work is busy this week. Cheers

The word constantly is promising sounds more like an error.

Ok latest info. Checked the psu leds all lit. When I power on the reset light stays on but the status light stays off. Left for over 10 mins and no change. Reconnected the speaker and no alarm. Same with the door closed. Nothing on the led screen. All led indicators showing on the reels... help!

Hi mate, if no one else offers I'll have a look. To me the fact it's alarmed and now stopped is looking the voltage regulator on the processor card. It probably would do the Ram clear alarm again but the battery is supplying the Ram ok now it's charged slightly so it's not 'clear'. I'd say if you want me to have a look send me the cpu card and memory card and we'll check that too. I've fixed 5 and built 5 remakes Cpu cards but I'm not one of the badass repair guys on here if anyone else wants to do it... just offering to help out

Hey MattyL, thanks for the info and offer. Would you only need the processor and memory cards? Not the motherboard as well??

I can test it only for you if you like mate. If your ok removing it. As I say though I'm too low to supply you a new 1 but narrows it down for you. A light processor card repair/Eproms reprogram i can do no problem.

Looking at your processor card again I noticed the print is gone off the processor which is probably nothing but unusual lol!

I still don’t think it’s the processor faulty. Can you take a picture of the motherboard below the processor it looks corroded there, I also heard that impacts can stop working if the battery is flat @MattyL is this true?

Typos!

It could be corroded there if a previous Cpu card has leaked mate. It doesn't look like that one has.

That would be news to me I've never come across that. They run totaly fine with no battery fitted. We'll see when we have a look.
