Signed up to try and have a go at fixing my neighbours MPU5 version of star wars. I meant to help him with it last year but ran out of time.
Was initially looking like a flat battery on the motherboard but we've replaced that and even the one on the gamecart. I'm trying to research other possible causes before throwing in the towel and getting someone else to look at it before he is made to get rid of the machine  ;D

Hi Everyone, my name is Robbie. I was wondering if anyone could help. I have acquired a rainbow riches fiddler on the roof game. However I have a low battery flashing on the MPU. How difficult is this to replace? Also how difficult is it to convert it to take new pound coins and to add a note reader?
I'm a complete novice so please explain for a dummy.

Many thanks.

Hi Robbie

Welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately I'm not a tech expert so unable to offer any advice on your machine problem, but Mr P and some of our other members will surely be able to offer some suitable advice

Hi Mr P,

Thanks for the reply. I spoke to.an engineer and he said the battery will have leaked and I'll need  new motherboard. Does this sound like a familiar scenario or is he just trying to charge for unnecessary work.
Thanks once again for taking the time and trouble to get back to me.

Robbie

Hi Robbie

Firstly welcome to the forum and secondly apologies that you have not been answered yet !

Ok the mpu6 will need a battery change, very common and it can be done yourself - however once done you may need to update the software, which is easily done by a usb stick and I can send you the software for that machine no problem

The coin mech can be updated by a load of places, but if your happy or would prefer to send the Mpu and mech to somewhere like e service then they will do that for you and give you a warranty etc

I would happily do it myself but we are mega busy!

Your note acceptor will most likely be the one with little switches rather than the nv10usb with a red button - if it is the older nv8/nv10 std version with dip switches then sadly it cannot be updated for the polymer note.

I hope this helps and any further advice I can give please feel free to ask

Mr P

Hi Harold and welcome to the forum.

Frog hop is a real classic, but not familiar with club Chinatown.

Hope you enjoy the forum
