Data East Heavy Smash arcade pcb repair

Game didn’t boot – and physical damage was the obvious problem – the PST518A reset controller was missing from the board.  A replacement was taken from a scrap board and the game ran again.


No sound – again some obvious physical damage – the power amp had been ripped from the board.  A brand new MB3730A was bought on Ebay and installed and the game was perfect again.
