Video Game Repair/Galaga Plays Upside Down


Terry wrote at 2015-03-15 21:33:45

Been a while since I posted the original problem. I recently fired the game back up and watched more closely what was happening. I did what you initially told me, but it didnt help. Now what is happening is that when I am playing the game it is still upside down. Missiles fire out of the rear of the ship, etc. After the game ends and it allows you to put in your letters for your name it goes back into its pre-play mode and everything is right side up until you start playing it again and then is starts all over - upside down.

I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.


I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.
