Millsy:

To get me started, is there anything particular you don't understand on schematics?

I posted a small piece in here about "wiring diagrams" to clear up wiring issues some people had, other than that i'm not sure what/which things to tackle next.

Always looking for users to ask what they're struggling with, then i can create some info based on that....

MM.

Being an old motor mechanic - found reading wiring diagrams in auto applications easier as there was a + & - and only used a test light (only started using multimeter since working on the pins) as well the wiring colours in the auto  stood out like dogs b....(cant rely on reading the colours in ems as they all look the same to me - Im a bit colour blind) - I feel more comfortable using continuity checking but I miss that main black earth wire.
This probably doesnt make sense as Im no electrician.Need to spend more time reading and working on schematics. *!@

Wow Marty reading this tutorial took me back to the days when Dick Smith was selling heated toilet seats - anyone remember those?

I usually download everything from alldatasheet.com these days as a central supply of pinout info, they seem to have every chip i try.  I am however toying with the idea of compiling a databook for pinball chips & semis (trannies etc), since there's probably less than 50 chips across ALL pinballs, it might be a handy booklet to keep in the toolbox, rather than 10 differnet refbooks
MM.

What a great idea!!  #*#

I wonder how many people got sunburnt while turning their eggs or flipping a steak, and wondering "why is it so hot here"  :lol

Hey, you could build a pinball with that info  !*!

I did exactly that, using pretty much the same info and LOTS of CMOS logic ICs... about 14 yrs ago, theres a thread on here somewhere for that game  :D
