A few months ago, I posted that I was attempting to fix up my worn Pac-Man Upright Cabinet. Well, here's an update to what I've done since:
After I fixed the short in the power cord on the Pac-Man Upright Cabinet, I went to work on the control panel. It was in bad shape. The first player button was broken to where it couldn't hold a switch, but the second player button worked well enough so I replaced it with the first player button. Every direction worked on the joystick except for up. The switch for the up direction was broken beyond repair. I ended up replacing that switch with the good one from the player select buttons. I purchased a soldering iron and removed the wiring from the joystick switches. The joystick wiggled a bit, so I added some washers to fill the gap between the joystick mount and the control panel. I then proceeded to solder the wires back onto the switches and attach the control panel back onto the cabinet. Finally, I ordered new player select buttons to replace the old ones.
