IC - Data East PIA Test Eprom
Diagnostic EPROM for all Data East pinball CPU boards through 1994 (Sega BATMAN FOREVER).
With power off, replace the current CPU ROM chip with this diagnostic 27512 EPROM. Note the three LED lights in the center right of the board. The far right most LED will flash as the games powers up with this diagnostic EPROM installed.
Below are the flash codes.
Completion of a flash means the associated chip has passed the diagnostic test. For example, if the LED flashes four times then stays lit, chip 11D would be bad.
There is a long pause after flash one only. After all eight flashes, the EPROM will pulse all coils, lamps and flasher bulbs in the game, one at a time in succession.
The test ROM for Data East CPU boards has the following
functions. When the Test ROM is installed into a CPU board
and power applied, the CPU will perform power-up self tests
and then immediately go into burn-in cycles with no
intervention. It is not required that the Test button be
pressed in order to initiate burn-in cycles.
The power up self-test will check major components on the CPU board and flash the LED as each one appears normal. If any fail, the LED will stay on. The tests consist of a checksum test of the ROM and read/write test of the RAM and the PIA's. The PIA test will NOT check both sides of all PIA's since certain PIA ports are designed to be inputs and the loading on those ports will determine the data seen by the CPU. However, those ports designed to be outputs will be written to and read from in order that basic go/no-go functionality can be checked.

The burn-in test will cycle through the solenoids, lamps, display and sounds like the present burn-in, with the following exceptions.
