Couldn't have been easier! Link to Ebay: ebay. People have received these and have reported that they work. Post last edited 2 years ago. Inactive member. The old chip is socketed, so it took 5 min to replace. No problems and BW is now batteryless. Recently bought some sockets to use in WPC games and will report back. Astill Entertainment. Collingwood, ON. Pinside member. Waukesha, WI. Just replaced the memory chip in my Theatre of Magic. It is a bit more work than a Whitestar or Sega as you need to desolder the old chip.

I added a socket for the new chip too, just in case I need to replace it in the future for whatever reason. Overall, it took about 30 minutes to do, start to finish but I do have a desoldering gun and worked without any problem. Board out of game. New chip in socket.

NVRAM experience -- $1.50-$2.00 chips

Another update: I just added this to Bride of Pinbot without any problems. Saint Paul, MN. Wellesley, ON.Pinball machines contain potentially lethal voltage. Dangerous voltage may remain for a period even after it is unplugged.

Prior to opening a pinball machine, be certain to unplug it, then turn it on to insure that it was actually unplugged. It is recommended that the machine be allowed to sit several minutes to allow any remaining power to dissipate. High voltages can be present on any machine, even unplugged, and it can be lethal. Read precautions before proceeding. Proceed at your own risk. AA and NiCad batteries leak. They will ruin your CPU board if left in for too long.

To make it unlikely to occur, replace your batteries annually. Yet even then, battery leakage can occur and ruin a board. So get rid of them! There are five different options and which one is best for you depends on which game you own and your skill level. The least expensive is to install a capacitor as this will never leak.

These only work on early solid state pinball machines see Pinwiki for a listing. We have less experience with Williams games, but so far the limit seems to be about a month. This may vary depending on who manufactured the RAM. Just remove the solder on the left side of where the battery used to be.

Flow a little new solder in the hole so it will melt easier, then remove the solder with a solder sucker or wick. Immediately below this spot, on the edge is the ground trace. That will be your second connection. Clear and clean a spot.

Use fine sandpaper if necessary. Make sure solder will stick by applying a small amount to this ground trace. You are done. Note that the board may not boot the first time as the capacitor has to charge. After a few seconds, turn off and try a second boot if needed. Phillips brand RAM seems to work quite well. The addition of a memory capacitor for Williams and System 11 boards is essentially similar to the Bally, but requires a few more steps:.Replaces aor compatible pinout x 8 SRAM that has its data inputs and outputs connected together ie.

Please see the compatibilty list further down on this page for more info. Absolutely no batteries are needed to retain your high scores or game settings, you can remove them from your game. Machine pin headers are used on this module which are very durable and won't damage your socket at all.

Please see the compatibility list below for more info. Williams System games did not have their RAM socketed from the factory. Gottlieb System 80 games did not have their RAM socketed from the factory.

There may also be timing or other hardware incompatibilities to take into consideration.

Batteries leak.

How To Get Rid of Those AA Batteries No More Ruined Circuit Boards!

Even brand new batteries from major brands have leaked a year or two later for no apparent reason and cause hundreds of dollars in repairs or replacement of boards and components affected. It's one of the best mods you can do to your games. This will also help identify what games are plug-and-play and which require soldering for installation.

If current jumper setting is for 32k RAM ie. Additionally there may be a jumper change required. If your game currently has a in it, you may want to consider just purchasing the NVRAM Module to avoid having to make any jumper changes.

In addition to this music on Creature From the Black Lagoon based on different dates will be affected. Twilight Zone's clock on the playfield will not show the correct time. There may be other games affected in addition to those listed here. Basically these functions will still work, but will not be based on the correct time since with nvram installed the real-time clock does not get updated when the machine is powered off.

Plug-and-Play on all Whitestar games. U25 see picture.There have been 50 images uploaded to this topic. View topic image gallery. Pinside member. You can install remote battery packs, coin cell batteries or other devices to prevent board damage, but the ultimate solution is just replacing the regular RAM with NVRAM.

No batteries to replace yearly, no losing your high scores, no leakage, and your data is good for 30 years. There was some argument on the forums saying that the FM was not going to work on pinball boards because of some kind of "compatibility issue", although when I looked up the specs, they seemed to be a perfect match.

Even if the board did not come from the factory with a socket, there is a good chance that at some point the RAM failed and the tech replaced the RAM and added a socket. I knew my Whitewater did not have a RAM socket, so by choosing it, I could document the most "difficult" RAM replacement most owners will simply swap the RAM, no need to even remove the board from the game. Whitewater is a WPC board. I held the board upside down over the trash and cut the battery board off with wire cutters and let it drop.

I did not want all that alkaline crud flaking off and lodging all over the board while trying to remove the batteries. By using the Metcal, the old RAM simply dropped out of the board when I finished desoldering the last legs. If you did not have a desoldering station, you would cut all the legs off the chip with a small pair of Diags, then remove each leg individually. That's much more work, and some would say riskier work, so a desoldering station is a good investment if you plan on doing lot's of board work in the future.

There is a silkscreen on the board that shows the "polarity" of the chip. The silkscreen shows the notch that needs to match the chip's notch. On well designed circuit boards, all the notches on all the chips will all face the same direction - but this is not always the case.

Always check the silkscreen. The SIPS sockets are super tight the first 10 insertions, so be very careful that the chip legs go into the center of the socket, and don't get folded under.

You can run your thumbnail along the row of legs to get them all into their sockets at the same time. Stick it into a block of conductive foam, or wrap it in tinfoil. RAM is static sensitive, so you don't want it just rattling around in your parts drawers without some conductive maternal around the legs. Although you will probably switch all your games over to NVRAM, the old RAM can be good for troubleshooting a dead board that you don't want to risk killing a good chip on.

Upon return of power you will see everything stored correctly, just like you had batteries installed. Pittsburgh, PA.

Thanks for this vid. I will pick up some for all the games that do not have midnight madness multiball. I believe all these games would not do the Midnight mode at midnight or show the clock correctly, although they would still work in general with the NVRAM:.

Maybe you can show how to replace the blocking diode with a jumper wire also. Sullivan, WI. I love SIP strips, I use them quite a bit.

One tip to those that may want to make this a little easier on themselves Put the SIPs onto the legs of the chip first, and then put the whole thing in to solder. They stay in nice and tight, and you don't have to swear at the chip when you bend the legs all over hell and back again because you don't have any fingernails Don't ask me how I know. All of those games have an IC socket from the factory pre installed.

To use the FM in these games it is just a matter of removing the Batteries. Removing the original SRAM. It is no harder than replacing a ROM.
