Location: Castle Rock, CO.
Symptoms: Needed to be “shopped” (basic restoration).
The biggest problem that this machine had, which I’ve come across a lot lately, is forgotten batteries.
Fortunately, on the WPC-95 systems, the batteries are mounted on a separate piggy-backed board which saved the CPU board from certain death. But even so, the alkaline affected the cabinet switch connector located right next to the batteries.
The battery holder was removed and the RAM chip at U8 replaced with an anyPin NVRAM module that doesn’t require batteries.
The playfield was cleaned, all of the rubber parts were replaced, as well as the slingshot plastics. The machine is looking good and playing well.
