Video Game Repair/Golden tee fore trackball


My GT fore trackball is not working correctly PLEASE HELP!!! When I go into test mode and go to player controls you can see the trackball is working correctly from left to right but there is no response forward or backwards. I thought maybe it was the trackball so of course I bought another one and it is doing the same thing. I don't know what else to do so I would appreciate any ideas that you may have for me. THANK YOU!! Ed

Hi Ed,

It sounds like you might have a problem with the harness on the Y axis of your trackball. Look at the plug for that axis and make sure that all of the wires are in the connector. Follow it all the way back to the main board and make sure that connector is secure in the housing. You can do this with the power on to make it easier.

Let me know if this works!

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.
