    Does anyone out there have an MSM5205 OKI speech chip I might buy. I am
    trying to repair an old Data East Pinball machine that has a bad sound board
    and it looks to be the voice chip. It appears that this chip is extremely
    obsolete and the only way I can get a hold of one is by buying a minimum of
    8 pieces for 30 some bucks a piece. In lieu of the 5205 how about a
    MSM6585, it appears to be a drop in replacement for the 5205. I really need
    some help on this as I have 3 little girls who keep asking when 'daddy's
    game' is going to be fixed so they can bounce the balls around again.

    Thanks

    Have you tried asking John Robertson at John's Jukes in Vancouver? His
    website's http://www.flippers.com and this kind of thing is his
    specialty. Good luck!

    Just took a look at his site and the chip is not listed on his "A few Rare
    Transistors and IC's - special pinball/video game stock items..." page and
    it says there that it isn't listed they don't have it. I tried the link he
    has to "Main Electronics" but they don't seem to carry ICs at all. Thanks
    for the link though.

    Nope, not what I'm looking for, the one I need is from OKI semiconductor and
    is labeled MSM5205. Thanks anyway.

    He might have a whole board stashed somewhere, John's come through a
    couple times with really oddball stuff I was looking for.

    I dropped him an email explaining what I need, here's hoping he can help.
    I'd really like to get this going again just so I can watch the 4 year old
    up on a step stool banging the flipper buttons and laughing her head off :)

    Thanks

    Hi Bill,
    Even if John doesn't have that chip, he'd be one of the best people
    to suggest some workaround to get your sounds back. Now that you've
    e-mailled him about it, I wish you success. :)

    And if that doesn't work, try posting on rec.games.pinball, lots of guys
    on there have parts.
     
  10. I assume you tried the Pinball newsgroup. I am sure someone over there can
    help.
