  • final fight pcb

    Hey guys
    years ago i bought a final fight off ebay. when it arrived it was DOA.
    plug it in, turn it on, black screen, no nothing,
    i understand it is a cps board, the battery is probably dead?
    what can be done with cps1?

    Final Fight wasn't a suicide board AFAIK. CPS2 was when the "all boards are suicide boards" thing started. CPS1 wasn't across the board.

        Check that out.
        Many CPS1 games were suicided, final fight isnt one of them.
        All you can do is use a working CPS 1 pcb and mix and match top and bottoms boards to see which one is at fault.

                I'll probably be labelled biased or whatever, but I don't really care at the moment. I think buying cheap boards is what got the young fella in trouble in the first place. Gatherer I'm not singling you out here. You've got an excellent reputation. I just don't want to point the guy back to eBay to take his chances a second time.

                Moral of the story - buy from trusted sellers only. Preferably ones who can show you the board working before you hand your cash over.

                Bwodie if you do buy a new board, please consider selling/donating the busted board to any one of the dozens of people on this forum who will revive it rather than let another good PCB go to the big JAMMA cab in the sky. You can offset the cost of a new board by selling a known busted-yet-repairable board, and still know that it will go to a caring family rather than the bin.

                  Last few EBAY sales I saw for Final Fight went for $100~$120 rarely see it go cheaper than that... Still cheaper to fix it or you can take another gamble and buy EBAY or whatever.
                  We sell with warranty for $165, you may think thats expensive but its not to bad if you factor in the fact that I am local and provide backup.
                  Plus there is always room to haggle on them anyway

                  Elvis is right also... Dont throw the board away... I will buy it for $20

                    hhhhhhhmmmmmm you will buy it for 20 bucks but you sell it for $165 ?? i guess you have a business to run

                    every board i sell gets bench ran for 24 hours and any componant replaced as required the problem is for all the bad sellers on ebay there are plenty of good ones you dont have to run a shop to be honest or to offer warranty or for back up anyone who has had trouble with a pcb from me has posted it to me at my cost repaired or replaced and sent back to them at my cost im not singling anyone out im just making a point that not everone will burn the guy its just how some shops have made arcade so expensive however i quess its expensive to run a shop with staff ect ect

                      Gatherer mate, absolutely no offense intend, but PLEASE throw a few full-stops and other punctuation in there. Your posts are really difficult to read, which is a shame because you honestly have some important stuff to say.

                      Sorry for the off-topic. Back to the discussion at hand...

                            Sorry to say but this is all starting to sound Jay Peeish. 100% working this ebay is evil blah blah that.
                            I have to say that 99% of the sellers on ebay i have bought from want to keep their good rep. If a seller says a board is 100% I give them the benifit of the doubt. I know all too well that selling and buying any pcb is risky considering the age.
                            Giving people warranties on pcbs is a risky game specially when you factor in people with little to no experience installing them and parts that are no easily replaced like customs. Old boards are fine, 95% of them are just common logic stuff.
                            A common failure on these CPS1 boards is the top C board where the CPS-0B-21 (or equivalent) SMD dies.
                            Personally I think its shit lucky dip hardware and only like 2 or 3 games on CPS1 anyway.
                            The whole sprit of this forum is to HAVE A GO, so have a go fixing your final fight

                            Gey Pee use to say all that stuff to me "Why risk buying a board from ebay when you can buy them from me 100% tested and working" Fact of the matter is I bought more good pcbs off ebay much cheaper then his shit.
                            He also use to tell me 80% of the pcbs on ebay are faulty and no good. Funny thing was he had no problem buying them so i'm guessing this was to put people off so he could buy them himself and sell them at a 300% markup.

                              Its dead remember, it wont fix itself and that cost money.

                              Also Arcade King I dont want to sound like Poo Jabba either but honestly not every game I purchased "working" from EBAY worked and when I check with the seller the game was never actually tested or its being sold for an operator friend.
                              I would say maybe 15% of what I buy has defects (some of them not immediatly noticable)

                              As a hobby I play around with all things arcade.
                              As a business I have to cover some things and those things are called expenses, Just because I offer to do something doesnt mean I should get a flaming about this or that, not everyone knows how to fix or has the spare parts or time to fix a game.

                              My mamma always told me... you cant say something nice then say nothing at all.
