Model: MV4
Symptom: Low Audio. Attempted Repair Damage

A ham fisted attempt had been made at replacing the audio caps. They had only replaced about 2/3rds and had damaged many solder pads and plated thru holes.

Removed all audio caps and other badly replaced caps. Installed new caps, patched traces, and soldered some caps in on the top side of the board where the plated thru holes were removed. Tested board and found that some sound effects were incorrect. Tested with a known good top board and narrowed problem to the bottom board. Replaced the YM2610 IC and retested.

Model: MV4
Symptom: Video RAM Error 8000 5555 5500

Top board had a patched trace from a previous tech

Replaced bad CXK5814 SRAM chip. Audio levels were low so a cap kit was installed. Board had lines in the graphics on slot 4. Removed deteriorated foam that was corroding things from the under side of the op board, cleaned the glue/foam residue with solvent, cleaned board and slots, then checked the board traces. Re-ran the existing patch from a via to the chip instead of the slot to the chip as it was much shorter, then patched 2 additional traces. Tested.
