    Hey All,

    Just wondering if anyone has ever fixed the electronics on omega supreme. I would like to take a stab at it, but I was wondering what exactly is in the guy and what types of problems are most common.

    I personally do not see any acid wear on the battery area itself.

    If anyone has a wiring diagram, that would be great. I am wondering if there is a chip set in there, or if it is just pretty simple with motors, on/off switch and battery panels.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    motors and on off switch, sometimes the motor is just seized, having it on and turning it a little by hand will sometimes free it up

    I took mine apart to replace one of the gears that make him walk so I didn't do any specific electronic work, but I don't remember seeing a chip set in there. It would probably be easier to replace the entire assembly with one from the Encore release if you don't mind that sort of thing.

    That's what I thought it was. This is pretty simple stuff then.

    Quick question though. In yours, when the motor seized, where you still seeing a light in the head?

    i need to replace the battery connectors/the compartment- that should be a simple task (fingers crossed.)

    i'd like to get my vintage figure walking again.

    i bought a g1 omega supreme a few months ago on ebay dirt cheap because it 'didn't work.'

    checked the battery terminals and the wires, and had it fully functional in no time. just a loose connection.

    check the easy/simple stuff first, you might be lucky.
