Video Game Repair/rush the rock issues


hi there
        i have a rush the rock Alcatraz edition arcade game it was working well then i went to power it up and it sounded like it was but when i looked at the screen it was blank with lines running horizontal, it also didn't/doesn't run through the start up where the steering wheel turns left to right any help would be appreciated

It's likely that the power supply has stopped working. Those were notorious for failing in the field.

Check that it is putting out the correct +5v DC to the board. Is there any logic activity at all? Does the hard drive even spin up?

One of the only ways you'll get NOTHING on the screen is if the power supply dies, so that's my first thought.

Let me know,

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.
