  1. Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately I screwed one of the connectors. I will need to order another one now but if you have the tool and can help out that would be excellent!
  2. Hi Team, I am looking for a 11 pin locking connector for my Bally Party Zone. I managed to grab a 12 pin from pinball spares and tried my hand at crimping using a screwdriver. This did not go well. It works but too dodgy for my liking. Pinball spares does not have the crimping tools in stock and $33 for the tool todo 1 connector just seems a bit too much. is there a version that I can crimp using a normal molex crimping tool? The ones that you crimp the metal connector to the wires and slide it into the connector? I watched a US pinball repair video and they replaced using one of these. Below is the actual connector. Thanksk
  3. I have ordered more fuses so will wait till these arrive and go from there. At least I know its alive.
  4. OK. Got the meter out and started testing fuses. F113 on the driver board was blown. I had none on hand so I wired it up just to test for second (I know you are probably screaming at me now) Anyway she fired up fine. Only thing is my wire started to melt. I immediately switched off. I have concerns that there is something else wrong as I would suspect the fuse would blow quickly compared to a 22AWG wire. Anyone know what F113 drives and why it could be heating up? Thanks
  5. Thanks everyone. I will get the meter out and give it a good once over and start checking fuses and voltages around the place. The kids are old enough now that they are asking to play "ping pong". True what they say. Don't play your machines and they start to fail.
  6. Hey team, I finally fired up my Party Zone after a few years of sitting there doing nothing. I now get garbage on the screen and no other signs of life. I have reseated connectors etc to see if I can get her going but no go. I did notice a burnt out connector but I am not sure of this is from years ago or recently. It doesn't seem fresh. I cannot remove that connector now as its like fused with the socket. Anyway has anyone seen symptoms like this before? Any advice? Thanks
  7. I just bit the bullet and grabbed a Apple II VGA scaler from a2heaven. Finally they have some in stock today. Better be worth it. No more monitor issues and colour in everything.
  8. Cause of you I ended up buying one myself :) Can you leave the floppy controller in there or do you need to remove that?
  9. I actually think we are getting ntsc50 Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  10. Awesome. I have a 344-0022-A which Arcade King suspected it was a 50/60hz chip. Do you have a NTSC 344-0020 chip already? I might look for one and if cheap enough grab one.
  11. Thanks Darkjedi Well look at that. I totally forgot I had a crappy 15" Analog LCD TV. We have some colour which is a start. There is some banding as you can see in the picture. If I restart the Apple the TV goes black and white till I power cycle the TV so I suspect the NTSC signal is a bit off and the TV cannot work out what it is. So far the monitors that work with this have been ones I kept for the exact reason of supporting the strangest signals.
  12. Thanks for testing that. I have seen heaps of pictures of US users running them on LCD's so I wonder what is different for them. Just on the PAL adapter. Would you need to change the crystal back to stock for it to work on a IIe?
  13. Awesome. Can you do me a favor? Can you try this out on a LCD TV and let me know if you get colour? Have only had luck on the one and only CRT TV I have left.
  14. If you see any come up let me know mate. Have checked sold listings and cannot see any.
