Question
Hello,

Just bought this upright machine and when I first turn it on it works great. Then after about 15 minutes the screen gets white while the audio is still working and he game is still "playing"

I've attached a picture of what it looks like.

Thanks for your help!

Answer
Frank,

It sounds like you have a monitor problem. I would suggest finding someone who specializes in monitor repair to come and take a look. You should be able to find someone on Craigslist, or by calling your local arcade machine distributor.

Hope this helps,
Brian

Expertise

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.

Experience

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.
