Repair / Upgrade Services

Is your system sick? Do you feel uneasy about repairing it yourself? Do you want it upgraded but don't know how? We offer Flat Rate* repair services on many different system logic boards.

What if your board isn't on our list of boards to repair? We offer repair services on many other game boards on a time and materials basis including:

  • Pac Man, Ms Pac Man, and Pac Man Plus
  • Galaxian
  • Phoenix
  • IREM games such as Moon Patrol
  • Sega System 16 games
  • And MANY more

Simply drop us a note and ask about our services capabilities. We can also:

  • Perform surface mount reflow of ICs to fix many glitchy boards
  • "Phoenix", or revive suicided CPS-1 and CPS-2 boards along with a limited set of Sega boards
  • Install UniBIOS chips on Neo Geo MVS and AES systems

Let us know what the problem with the board is and we'll let you know what we can do to help. We log all of our repairs online. Take a look to see what we have fixed in the past!

Our shop rates are $60 per hour, minimum of 1/2 hour plus parts. Most board repairs run between $55 to $75. If you are price sensitive check with us first or tell us what the NTE (Not To Exceed) limits are.

When shipping to us, please remember to:

  • Put the logic board in an anti-static bag
  • Ship it packed in anti-static materials.
  • Print and fill out the Repair Request Form then place it in the box with the board.

If you do not have the pink anti-static foam or the pink/green anti-static peanuts then newspaper is better than the regular peanuts/foam. Please take due care in packaging your boards and sending them to us!

Boards with shipping damage due to improper packing will be returned unrepaired or will be repaired on a time/materials basis only.

Boards shipped without Repair Request Forms will be returned unrepaired.

Boards shipped without anti-static bags will be repaired, but shipped back in an anti-static bag with a small charge for the bag ($1 to $3 depending on size)

If you have any special requirements (maximum repair charge "Not To Exceed", etc) then these MUST be documented on the Repair Request Form.

To keep the flow of boards steady we no longer take in large shipments of boards for repair. The maximum is 5 boards in for repair at any one time.

We repair the following computer systems:

  • Apple II (II, +, e*, c*, gs* - logic board and power supplies)
  • TRS-80 Color Computer (1, 2, and 3*)
  • Commodore VIC-20* and 64*
  • TI-99/4 and /4a
  • Atari 400/800 and XL/XE series*
  • Others upon request - ask us!

Ask us about game console repair, but keep in mind - nothing newer than a Genesis.

We specialize in repairing:

  • Neo Geo - We pioneered many of the repairs and the cap kits and helped to document the PCBs and chipsets.
  • Galaga / Bosconian - We pioneered the rebuild kits.
  • Pac Man / Mrs / Plus / Jr Pac
  • Galaxian
  • Taito SJ - Jungle Hunt / King, Elevator Action, and more.
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Mortal Kombat I, II, III, and IV
  • Midway Wolf, T, and Y unit PCBs
  • Midway 8080 - Space Invaders, SI Deluxe, and more - (L boardsets only)
  • And many many many more.

If you don't see it on our repair logs - ask us!

Please note that some systems have notoriously common failure items. The Commodore 64 is among them. If your Commodore 64 has more than one bad RAM chip, we will notify you as this typically indicates a failing or faulty power supply.

As always, please contact us if you need an "old school" computer or game system repaired that isn't on our list. We have parts for many other systems and may be able to help you.

All repairs are repair price plus shipping. Previous repair attempts may cause additional charges, especially if we have to troubleshoot them or undo them and redo them properly.

* = Excluding damaged customs. Sometimes you just can't find the custom components to repair older systems. We have a boneyard and know where to buy many different parts, but sometimes you just can't get them.
