Main Board Repair


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Vectrex with the dreaded "White Dot". Tore it apart to see this. C20240303_205728.thumb.jpg.251cfb92704743de8da18cf09951d1f4.jpgan anyone tell me what is going on here? It looks like someone went in and added these bodge wires at some point. I've never seen a Vectrex with these wires, so it's confusing my brain a little. 



Is this normal, or should I remove them? They were not soldered on very well, so my first thought is remove.

No idea why those yellow bodge wires are there. Someone has recapped the board and there is evidence of rework on some of the chips and resistors. Maybe there are a bunch of lifted pads and ripped traces on the bottom of the board and the bodges were put in as repairs.
