Zoo Keeper Boardset

Working boardset with four boards

Original, tested and working Taito Zoo Keeper arcade game circuit boardset from 1981. This boardset has been recently repaired, bench tested over the course of week and works fine. Includes the following boards:

Video Processor board - these typically have corrosion damage, this board is fairly clean.  Header pins were reflowed, tantalum caps replaced (they tend to fail) suspect sockets replaced (a few) and was repaired. 

Main Rom board - header pins reflowed, one of the ribbon cable headers also replaced, very clean and working.  Board has the coin door board bypass rom installed. You do not need the coin door bypass board to play the game because of this.  Just the four boards in this listing.

Expansion Rom board - header pins reflowed, ribbon cable header replaced, some ICs and sockets replaced during repair process.

Data / Sound board - clean original board that didn't need much work other reflowing header pins and replacing a socket.

Note that the ribbon cables are not included. We recommend getting a new set as we believe replacements are available online.  Everything has been tested and works fine.  See photos for more details on their condition.
