Here we are. Back on the Space Harrier. It’s been too long. I can’t wait anymore. Let’s fix this.
Ok, now that the cab is moved to the living room, I can take care of it more easily.
We have to deal with lots of cables. Lots of them are disconnected. Hopefully one friend got a Space Harrier too so I can compare.
We have also a missing power supply and a very dirty fan.
PCBs are there. Everything is in place. Just missing some PCB feet.
I had a bad ROM IC32 8751. This component is not dumped. British guy Mark from RetroClinic set up a kit to replace this ROM.
This kit includes 6 ROMs and the 8751 changed for a bypass PCB. No soldering or welding. Very easy to install.
You can see the parts on the picture above (’empty’ PCB upper right, and the 6 ROMs with bright white stickers).
30 years of dust.
Look at those cables. The black is an original AMD HE10. The game requires a total of 4 connectors like this.
Mine are burned or replaced by the big white one. To put everything back as original, I have to find spare parts in my network, as they no longer produce those items.
Connectors found. Wiring in progress.
No more power supply. Wires are abandoned like this.
Ready to connect a power supply.
After at least 3 years of deep sleep, let’s plug the machine on! And……
Game doesn’t boot. I have to send it to Retroclinic. No choice.
