Good news! Well, sort of. I found out why my Robotron wasn't working. The CPU board has a problem. I swapped the CPU board in my Stargate with the Robotron one and now my Robotron is working again! The problem is, now my Stargate doesn't work. So I will have to diagnose the problem with the CPU board and fix that.

If anyone has any clue what might be wrong with it, drop me an @EMAIL@. The symptoms is that when going into the diagnostics, it shows that all controls for Player 1, Player 2, and Player 2 Start (NOT player 1 start), are stuck "ON".

I replaced the fuse block on my MsPac and all I can say is WOW! It's like I gave the monitor a cap kit! Bright crisp screen now, with ZERO hum bar! Next thing to replace is the edge connector so that the game doesn't reset during play.

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
 
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
