Wizard of Wor Capacitor Problem

I got a tremendous reply about my Wizard of Wor capacitor problem. A number of the collectors emailed me back and said they could provide me with photos. Another one went one step further and helped me identify from the schematic that it was indeed a capacitor I needed and what it is called.

On the schematic (Page 166 in the PDF online document) within the shape of the component there is a hand written .1. That means squat to me. I didn’t see a corresponding components “shopping” list with the diagram, only a list of the IC’s and other chips. Well, this collector let me know that usually .1 means that it is a “.1 microfarad ceramic cap”. That doesn’t give me a voltage, but that was specific enough.

Component C21 is what was burnt up and exploded.

Thanks for this, I have been looking for something like this to do our blog.

I hope this is true…since your user name is rather spam like.

That is why I included the repair logs for all the games I had, including the Wizard of Wor, so that others could benefit and repair their arcade game as well.
