General Astrocade Repair Resources

Recommended Posts

Today I've decided to finally crack open my ol' Astrocade and try to repair it. I've done several arcade repairs now so I'm feeling confident I can at least poke around in it with a probe/soldering iron.


I don't want specific repair help right now, but are there any resources that are a good checklist or "generally ways to diagnose / repair" these? I saw the pinned post and it's got some common stuff, but was wondering if there's a more focused general resource out there with things like pinouts, voltages, etc.


I know the "plz fix Bally HELP" threads have good info for specific problems but I'm not quite at that point. Any advice? Thanks!


I should add: I'll be starting with the general "how to repair PCBs" that I use for arcade games, which is a fabulous starting point for just about anything. But it's not Astrocade specific so I will have to work around any... peculiarity...with the console. :D

I re-posted your question to the Astrocade discussion group on Groups.io, here:




Hopefully someone can help you out.



Cheers, thanks! The current problem is finding where I stored it....


Okay. Now that the first problem is solved....LOL
