Video Game Repair/Mortal Kombat 2


I have a Midway dedicated Mortal Kombat 2 machine where the characters will not execute any finishing moves. I just had it repaired because it had power supply issues. When I got the game back, I was testing the game out, and switching the credit settings, and that's when I noticed the finishing moves didn't work anymore. I tried changing the dip switch settings with no luck. Do you have any ideas for me to try?


The violence level is likely set to the minimum through the soft dip switch settings. Press the test button on the inside of the coin door and go through the menus. Select the one that turns on violence and set it to the level you would like. This will bring back your fatalities!

Hope this helps,

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.
