Video Game Repair/Golden tee fore

Question
Hi,
I recently purchased a golden tee fore arcade machine. From what i was told everything is fine apart from the pcb.
I have turned it on and it starts up but its just a blue screen. do you think if i replace the pcb it will be the most likely fix?

Answer
I will need more information than this- can you hear any game sounds? Does the hard drive spin? What are the lights on the board doing?

Buying a new board is not the easiest thing- you have to be sure that the versions match perfectly with the hard drive or it will not work at all.

Let me know,
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.
