  • My T2 is haunted...

    (yes, a silly thread title, but these errors are for real)


    Had some strange behaviour from my T2 recently...

    1. One time, after a few games, I was playing....
    and the "arrow lights" (that cycle up/down for skill shot) weren't cycling properly,
    yet the next row of lights to the left... WERE cycling up/down. (?!?!)

    2. Sometimes, when I turn on the machine.... I get NO playfield lights at all. (GI & flashers work though)

    3. Sometimes when I turn on the machine... it's all fine, then... while playing, many lights flicker randomly.

    4. If that's not enough, sometimes while playing, the speech samples play about 5 seconds after they're triggered!
    eg: Ball hits skull dropdown target... 5 seconds later... "load the cannon" (?!?!)

    Any ideas?

    NOTE: This is my 1st pin - I haven't had it too long - and I barely know one end of a soldering iron from the other.

    sounds like bad connectors on the boards to me

      Ditto. Check connectors.

      Mr_Staypuft, I moved thread to the appropriate forum.

      Cheers,

      Dan

        Thanks guys, and sorry Dan, hadn't seen that subforum.

        PS.. any tips as to WHICH connectors to look at?



        There's rather a lot of them....
        (and I've very much got my "L plates" on)

            Hmmm....

            Might have to get one of the techs from work
            to come over and have a look.

            thanks

              Try putting some batteries in it.
              Sounds real stupid, but these games can 'fake' some real wierd faults if they don't have batteries in them.
              Cheaper test than getting a tech out.
              Any arcade, pin, juke, probs in Adel, just message me.

              Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

                  They should be labelled J120 and J121, if that helps you a bit more.

                  The biggest board and look to the bottom left corner of that board.

                    Thanks PB '74, when I get my tech friend over,
                    I'll point him in that direction.

                    No worries Bwodster...
                    you're always welcome over for a bit of Magical Drop 3...
