Street Fighter II Arcade Machine Repair
This repair is about a Street fighter II arcade machine I bought at a yard sale.
The Monitor was white when I powered it up. First thing I did was take the PCB out of the cabinet and check over it.
I noticed that the edge connector needed a clean. So I cleaned the edge connector and sprayed the socket with Deoxit.
I reassemble and tested it.
I found out that 6 buttons for each player are needed for this game and this only had 3 buttons per player.
I did some research and found that The Kick harness is missing so I ordered one from e-bay.
Turned out to be the wrong one. So I found some documentation pertaining to this SFII pcb.
So I decided to make my own version of a Kick harness.
A friend gave me two of these DB9 breakout boards. So went work and made my Kick harness.
Next thing to do is make a new control panel.
I have a friend who has a milling machine to drill some more holes in the panel . I forgot to take photo of after. I also installed all new button’s in the refurbished panel.
I rewired the control panel and connected the kick harness. The multi coloured cable is the kick harness. Also drilled holes for the player buttons.
I got some original graphics printed for the marque and surrounding the monitor.
