  1. Nice one John, Yeah it's all good I sent a vid of it running perfecto before I sent it (as always lol). The contacts are all clean and all the joints are nice on the board. New voltage regulator too on it so would point more towards the psu/loom. Glad your on the case. I'll program a set of eproms for him this week and I think I've got a spare prom card to try. Still seems iffy that it's sitting dead with the existing sound card... it must be jamming up bus lines?
  2. OK thanks... update: It got passed the Error 81 Battery. Then there was a plethora of more error codes. One being Error 33 which is some type of protocol Error. I'm sure my board is perfect so I'm going to program a fresh set of Roms and start there.
  3. Yeah my machine I use and test my boards is the global scorp1. It's the BFM I'm not familiar with. Error 81 The board is perfect I'm just trying to work the error out. The machine he's never had working and can't get back to life that's why I've given him a good board. A ram corruption or no battery error is really strange, unless it is because the machine is just not in a state where its 100% with the roms or cards. Difficult one to fix not in person lol
  4. Nice one, appreciate at that. Error 81 Ram corruption or no battery fitted. It's got to be the latter. That's really strange though. I have a global scorp 1 and I've never seen that message. The lad is convinced he's some how smoked the roms or something. Really confusing me this one
  5. Hi, I'm trying to help a friend fix his scorp1 machine. The main board is used tested and working. It's one of mine I've used and given him. He seems to think he's touched wires on the sound card... one fell out of the plug (not with my board). The soundcard is suspect with it it does nothing. Sits dead. Without it it pops out of Reset showing 11 on the seg then flashing 81. It's a bfm I've got no fault codes in any paper work. Does anyone have any error codes? Thanks
  6. No it's not cost effective sadly just a fun project for me to challenge myself. I went for the minimum 5 made. I paid more for purple but How cool does that look?๐Ÿ˜ŽThe maygay m1, epoch stuff like that has been remade by several people but they work out very expensive, outdated obsolete or custom parts etc... its not worth the hassle either so it's all just for fun. You're obliged to fix any problems or sort out mistakes people make too (blowing your shit up ๐Ÿคฎ) If I paid myself the usual 10p an hour to repair rate to fix the original board these cost more in time for sure ๐Ÿ˜. The biggest time consuming and labour part is meticulously checking everything. The voltage monitor IC are pricey at ยฃ14 too. Having said that my hobby is going out on a Sunday and picking up cheap dead machines and having a bit of fun so developing my skills, unwrapping my own PCBs ive designed and built... bringing and old piece of junk back to life is well worth it from a bloke in shed engineering point of view ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Thanks, I don't think there's a demand for the machines, It was done as a side project and for developing the skills. I have a couple i can make up if someone honest needs one... not for traders or flippers of course ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. Wow I couldn't open the Vids mate but I literally can't wait to see this. I reckon this was probably the 2nd machine I ever played. Glad to see one around. Is this the only one known?
  9. Thanks people. Where there's a will there's a way ๐Ÿ‘
  10. That last picture fills me with joy... nothing better than a fruity in that condition ๐Ÿ˜‹
  11. Finished. Really happy with how it turned out. Not a bad little project ๐Ÿ˜Ž Also tidied the machine up 20220728_074921802.mp4
  12. Initially I had one small teething problem. I replaced hyundai hy6264 ram with Hyundai hy 6264 ram which I had already. The ram speed was different (latency) it should be 70ns but I Fitted 100ns because that's what I had and use on all my other 6264 boards...I have never had to take note of the suffix code up until now. The ram cleared with everydoor close even though the volts were good so I started looking at what had fitted. Ram speed is something I've never come up against before and something new learned. The only 70ns Faster Ram I had was 62256 but that's fine to use it as it will still address it like normal. It ran Totally perfect after ๐Ÿ˜
  13. Here are the boards... made in China. Really cool to get my design built. I usually work with pencil paper and manufacture everything myself by hand so I really enjoyed this.
  14. Here's my board design... its a WIP in the picture. Yellow is the silkscreen Red top copper Green bottom copper. The numbers near the 64 way connector holes were just for working with and checking. Checking was the worst part. With no schematic I worked out each individual line and 'hooked' them up to a legend so I could highlight each trace when checking. Eg Address 1, data 4, cs1. Pic of that to follow
  15. Here's the card stripped back. This card was so minging I had to soak it and cut everything off. I always wear partical mask when working on battery damage. The board looks better but there are so many tiny breaks, virtually every trace.
  16. Hi people, I picked up this old global stealth tech for a bit of fun, as always the Ram/rom card was obliterated. I could not be arsed to repair it, but just for the project thought I'd have a go at making a new one from scratch. Here's a few pics of the project
  17. Yeah thanks mate, I will have a good look at the lamp test and see what's there ๐Ÿ‘ You can't read an alpha display while you are taking a dump like reading the manual and the thinking work is taking place ๐Ÿ™‚ so would still really like one.
  18. Thanks mate nice one. I have the workshop/schematic manual printed out in a folder. Yeah that's what I'd like the manual for mate the button and lamp wiring info๐Ÿ‘ Bringing back to life battery damaged boards, strobes can be out, stuck on, super bright, all makes it quicker fault finding especially if there's alot of faults. I make notes or a list. It's just something extra to work with. Obviously you can trace it all just much prefer doing it with a diagram too.
  19. OK thanks for helping Rich I have pinged him a message.
  20. Yeah apologies Rich unless it's me being thick or because I use the mobile version of the site? I've searched the title in various combinations and then gone back through 23 pages in the download section. Can't find it I did find an upload of the scorpion 2 Pal Logic map though so that is pretty usefull
  21. I might take you up on that if I can't get the deluxe it's got to be pretty close. Thanks
  22. There's one for Cops n robbers- platinum but that's a Scorp4 and Eclipse cabinet so sadly none of the diagrams or anything are any good from a repairs point of view Happy to pay if anyone has one?
  23. Hi The Deluxe part is important. (Scorp2 taller cab) Does anyone have an original manual or PDF? I'm hoping to use it as a test machine so all the lamping/switch/coin diagrams would be highly useful. Anyone have one? Thanks
  24. Picked up a scorpion 2 today to have a look at. Literally can't wait to try the hidden menu and join the club ๐Ÿ˜…
  25. I'd be interested in a look at the faulty boards if you still have them
