Video Game Repair/Tekken3


I purchased a tekken 3 arcade this week. It would not stay on so I adjusted the power supply switch to which this seemed to help. We played it the entire night and the next day. Yesterday I noticed the sound and the coin lights were not working. I un plugged it and plugged it back in and now it only goes to initializing screen and will not boot at all. What is going on and where do I start?

Gday Danny,

I already partially answer this.

It definitely sound like a power issue.  Get a multimeter and check the power voltages going to the PCB.  If your not getting a clean 12V and 5V then you might have to replace the power supply.

Hope this helps
