Bally Pinball MPU Circuit Board Repair Instructional Video
DEVELOPED BY GERBER DESIGNS
Do you have a pinball machine that is not working because of corrosion damage to the main circuit board, and it looks like the circuit board in the photo?
Do you want to repair it but it is too expensive to hire someone, or there is nobody local who can, and you don't know how to fix it yourself?
Do you feel that you would be capable of fixing it yourself if only someone could show you exactly how?
Well here is your chance with this instructional video that explains how to repair corrosion damaged Pinball MPU Boards, Step-By-Step. This video, available on DVD, is almost one hour in length and focuses on the repair and restoration of a corrosion damaged AS-2518-35 Bally Pinball MPU Board which was used in Bally Pinball machines from approximately 1977 to 1985. It is very detailed and is broken into six chapters.
Whether you are an experienced technician, or a novice who has never soldered before, this video will help you get your corroded pinball MPU board running again.
It must be noted that the corrosion removal method used in this video is not your typical water/vinegar mixture method, as a matter of fact, it does not subject your circuit board to liquids at all. It is also not a bead blasting method. It is a simple process using a small power tool which will restore the circuit board traces to shiny copper allowing them to be tinned and protected for the remaining useful life of the circuit board. I have performed electronic repair for almost 30 years, and I have personally used each of these methods and have achieved the best result with this method, by far. I have boards over 20 years old, still in great shape from this method. You can do it, and you won't be disappointed!
In addition to the specific repair information for the MPU board mentioned above, this video covers many techniques which may be helpful in other general PC board repairs that may be applied in the repair of other circuit boards used in various Pinball Machines, or other Video Games:
General techniques in corrosion removal
Component removal techniques of pin-through-hole components.
PC board tinning and reconstruction
These techniques have also been applied successfully in the repair Stern Pinball MPU Boards from the late 1970s, Gottlieb System 80s, Williams MPU boards, and others.
