For GIBO,

Unfortunately, I do not have any contact information on you (i.e. email or phone no.). But this concerns your request for a new MPU; I have had you on our waiting list since September, listed only as "GIBO." If you're still interested, then please call us as soon as possible so that I can hold a board for you.

Thanks and sorry for any error on our end.....

Hi,
We are now in the process of building and shipping new Game Plan MPU boards once again. Also, we have shipped a number of boards to customers in Europe and in Canada; so we can definitely ship one to you in Australia, too. We just need your full address in order to get an accurate shipping quote. Please email us directly at the address listed below, and place the words "Game Plan MPU" in the subject line. If you like, we could just ship it to your freinds who will be visiting Arizona. This would obviously be much less expensive (assuming they'd have no problems with customs on the trip home, etc.).

By the way, the price for our board is $209 U.S. - plus shipping.

Thanks!

Hi,

Well, regarding the backglass issue, we've really noticed just the OPPOSITE: the vast majority of Game Plan machines that we acquire have outstanding backglasses (and the remainder are usually good to very good!!). This makes sense, since so many of these games had "died" early in their lifetime due to bad MPU boards (i.e. from battery leakage). That simply means that any possible damage, due to heat from the lamps, did not have a chance to occur. Although a backglass can lose paint due to environmental conditions (humidity, etc.) most paint loss can be attributed to excessive heat.

There was one "Coney Island" backglass for sale on the Mr. Pinball classified; you should definitely check there first, then check with Mayfair, too.


By the way, just to let everyone know: we still have some new Game Plan MPU boards available - see our ad under the "Parts for Sale" area....


Thanks,

Hi,

Last time I checked, there was no procedure yet on Marvin's website to illustrate how to cut & strap the MPU-1 board (there is a procedure for MPU-2, though).

In fact, I was asked to submit a procedure for the MPU-1 for that repair site, since we have done this several times for customers in the past. However, I have just not had the time to document the procedure (with pictures, etc.), since we've been so busy building the new MPU boards, which are selling very well so far.

If you'd like, we can cut & strap your board for you at a fair price. Of course, depending on what else we might find wrong with the board, you might be better off purchasing one of our new boards. But we'd be willing to give you a fair evaluation to determine the lowest-cost solution. Sometimes it IS cheaper to repair the old one.....

Hi,

There is no regulator for the +7vdc lamp driver level that you're referring to; it's simply a rectified AC level directly from the 8vac tap on the transformer. However, this +7vdc level (DC side of the bridge) is fused at the INPUT to the bridge.

So, first make sure the fuse is good, then proceed from there. Replace the fuse (if it's bad) and if it blows again, you should then remove all of the connectors from the MPU and the lamp driver boards. If the fuse blows again, then it's possible that the bridge rectifier had gone bad (although I have never had to replace this particular bridge in a Game Plan PSU).

How about the MPU? Does it boot ok (i.e. do you get six flashes from the LED on power-up?). If not, then there's a good chance that your MPU is bad. Keep in mind that we now sell brand new MPU boards, too.

If you'd like, you can call us with any questions that you may have (technical or otherwise) and we'll be happy to help you out!

Thanks,

-Jim
