HI, recently I turned on my arcade game and the game won't load.  It's stuck on the Mem Test screen.  What's is wrong and is it reparable?  Please see the attached photo.

Hi John,

This shouldn't be too difficult- this happens when the boards don't communicate with each other. What you'll need to do is remove the board stack from the game and remove the screws that hold the three boards together. Very gently pull the boards apart and then put them all back together. This should solve your problem!

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.
