  • 48 in 1 game stopping after 10 mins

    I have a 48 in one that runs ok for 10 minutes and then the screen goes basically blank, turn it off and turn it on again and it works find for another ten minutes or so, the voltages are all ok, cleaned all the contacts, checked all the contactors all ok, any body got any ideas?

    are you running it from an pc power supply??

    does the sound go off when the screen goes blank?

      Running from an arcade power supply (Peter Chou) and yes the sound goes off, actually the screen goes purple and gets verical lines.

          thats what i was thinking
          might be worth throwing a pc power supply on it and see if it still does it

              Have you checked the voltages yet?
              Maybe too much ripple from the PSU?

                did check the voltages all ok, but not the ripple, never had a problem with ripple before but still a good point, i have a scope but just used the good old DMM, i have a spare PSU will change that first, and throw in a fan to boot, some good ideas to start off with, keep them coming, will do the fan and PSU on Thursday and let you know.

                  A reasonable (but not perfect) check for ripple without a scope is to measure the DC supply with a DMM on the AC setting...

                    Good point, how often would somebody check for ripple, the last time i had a problem with ripple/noise/interference was years back, every time the school bell rang the machine would play up - true.
