He told me he had been offered £500 so I guess he took it.
I was asking if he had anything else and he said no.

Oh well let’s hope it had an original boardset in it.
Always looking for a bargain.
Wanted. Centipede uprigh, bezerk, mad planets.

If the PCB's are there - that's a good pickup and a good save from the x-in-1 brigade.

pics or it didn't happen....

There is no ROM missing

The Defender rom boards I have come across all had 11 EPROMS - I was just trying to be helpful in case it was an easy fix...

Most games that would be true but this looks like an early Defender ROM set which had only 10 ROMs as opposed to the normal 11 - the CPU only has 1 x Decoder ROM too which would go along with the theory

Still good call and nice to see people offering advice and help Thumbs Up

Here's some Christmas reading if anyone fancies...

Good news and bad on the Defender front. Thanks to members on this forum I now have a new marquee and a repacement monitor chassis. I found some RAM and a starter for the neon tube, new buttons and have had a clean up in places.
Bad news, the monitor tube may be dead. Will investigate this further but if anybody has a working or non working Electrohome G07 monitor, or tube, I'd love to hear from you.

Trying to keep the machine original if possible.

Looks like a nice machine but if you are going to sell it once fixed remember not to pump too much into it. Your looking at around 1k if you sell.
