Video Game Repair/galaga power


I plugged in the galaga and nothing at all happens. No lights. Nothing.
What would you check first?

The first thing i would check would be the fuse at the end of the power cord. With the machine unplugged from the wall, follow the main AC cord in the back and to the fuse. Check that first. If you're still getting nothing at all, check the main power switch located on the top of the machine.

Has this machine worked in the past, and now is not working at all?

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.
