Video Game Repair/Hold button on video poker machine


I have a Game King Multi-Game machine. 1 of the "hold" buttons isn't working. Is there an easy fix?

Hi Linda,

It's very likely that the connector on the bottom of the button has lost its connection. Open the control panel and look at the button- there should be three wires. Unplug each one, one at time, and reconnect them, one at a time.

This should take care of 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.
