Hi,

Has anyone repaired one of these? I have mine apart right now (no sounds) but I'm not sure what to do (checked for loose connections), nothing appears burnt out. I can post pics if needed. Maybe just trash it?

I actually just got one of these a few weeks ago and like yours it seemed to work intermittently. It uses a 9v battery with the snaps. On a whim, I went to Radio Shack and bought a new 9v battery connector as the old one felt loose. I just cut the old wires and wire nutted the new connector, put the battery on it and....it still seemed the lights weren't lighting right. I got a brand new 9v and voila! I think my other "new" batteries were old. It seems there just aren't many things that require a 9v anymore, and consequently they sit on the shelf for a long time and drain.

I guess my point was that the actual electronics are pretty basic so the first thing is just to make sure you have good power.

The game is neat enough to spend a little time to try to get it going,IMHO.

Good Luck!

Thanks, I may try the replacement technique. I already tried different 9volts and checked them with my battery tester.

Hi,
I found the game at the flee market but the controller doesn't work so I'm trying to repair it. The whole thing has been burned out so I'm not sure how the thing was before. Maybe we could share some informations that can help us repairing it.

Contact me if you are interested.

Thanks
