Has anyone else got a Hook (Data East 1992) where the score display works fine after turning the machine on and then goes blank after about 20 seconds?

Don't have a HOOK but sounds like a connection fault. Check the plug on the back of the dot matrix . It may have come loose. Carefully push it back on properly if it is loose.

Thanx, I've already checked the connection out and it feels tight. This problem happens everytime I turn the machine on so I've got no idea what score I've got. A little frustrating because the rest of the machine works fine.

And yes it came from Highway Entertainment.

Thanks. I'll check out the link. Bought the machine sight unseen and very happy with it.

I liked the game, especially the target/sklill shoot from the ball release.:)
