      Sega Galaxian Cocktail Restore

      So I thought I had better start a thread on my restore of a Sega Galaxian cocktail cabinet, found at the local tip shop for $110.
      It's had a hard life, but it looks like the tube is still working, and worthy of being restored back to it's former glory.
      Some of the capacitors on the board have been knocked around, someone has done a, shall we say a less than perfect job of replacing some of them

      So I started by taking off the perspex replacement of the glass, cleaning the top, take off the lock down bolts.
      Reattached a 2200 25v cap (only had a 16v so decided to make do for starters).
      Completely removed one line of 104 caps, cleaned the holes, board and properly replaced them.

      Now I get a blue blur across most of the monitor rather than a little bit of blue, so we are getting somewhere.
      Had to write code for someone else for most of the weekend so that's all I had time for this week, hopefully do another post soon.

      I think that may be an Artic cabinet.
