Manuals and Schematics

(and other paperwork :)

last updated May 13, 2015



I repair an awful lot of games, and i find that scans off of the internet just don't cut the mustard,
they don't have the specific revision you want, or are missing bits you need, or are illegible sometimes.
Not to mention it is far easier working from a bit of paper than it is from a computer screen,
therefore I have amassed 2 filing cabinets FULL of paperwork that i still use as a reference library
for fixing pcbs on a day-to-day basis. This list is mainly for my own benefit, so that when i'm out
on my travels, i know i can look it up and check i'm not buying duplicate paperwork. Quite a few
of these manuals were actually scanned by me and made available on the internet over the
years and its quite possible that they made their way onto the "10-billion-videogame-manuals-in-one"
DVD's that you see people scalping via eBay and the likes. C'est La Vie.

I've had to seperate the page into two pages now :

Videogame Operator Service Manuals - OTHER MANUALS

duplicates that i may have available
in my webstore!
