    Need some help in Brisbane with a Cruis'n USA machine issue, can anyone help?

    Hi all.

    I need some help in Brisbane from someone who knows a bit about arcade repairs as I have very limited knowledge (I'm a pinball guy)

    My Cruis'n USA was resetting during rom check so I changed the power supply but now nothing.

    It does have an lcd instead of the CRT tv in it and so there is an extra board which may have failed

    If someone can come and look at it I'd happily pay for their time

    Please PM if you can help

    I'm nowhere near you but some basics to go over.
    Check the voltages from the power supply, then also check them at the board.
    Is there sound coming from the machine?
    Can you start a game?
    Have you looked inside at all the rom's. They might just need a gentle wiggle to seat properly. Carefully disconnect all the cable to the boards (both ends) one at a time then reconnect. like pinball sometimes it's the cables that cause issue's
    Are all the fuses intact?

    Sorry but all I can think of at the moment.

    There is no sound and no power at all. No lights on the board anymore either so thatís why I need someone to look at it. Iíve tried so many things and now the hole is dug ever deeper

    Can you post pictures of the power supply and connections. If there are no DC voltages coming out of the PSU, is there AC mains coming into the power supply? If your ok with measuring mains voltage?
    Also what suburb are in located.

    Can you post a picture of the power supply that you replaced. Also the red wire in the 3rd photo with a video scaler has that gotten hot? wire looks melted?

    Yes that red wire did melt a bit but I think it might still work

    Bit hard to tell but it looks like you have the red wire connected to GND, usually red is used for +5V. Also looks like you have one of the mains earth connections (green\yellow) wired to +5V terminal. This would be shorting the +5V rail from the power supply to earth, so the power supply would not run. Need to check what wire colour is for what voltage in your cabinet. Looks like the game uses +12V, +5V, -5V to a JAMMA harness but yours had some wire directly soldered to the board?
    Don't power up the cab until you sort out the power supply wiring.

    Agree with Ryan here. Power Supply is wired wrong. The Green with Yellow Stripe from the power cord supplying power should be attached to the Screw labelled FG (This is the 240 V ground). No telling what damage this has caused as there is other cables also therefore wrongly connected. I also see that your video converter had been therefore probably cooked as the red wire insulation has melted. Sorry but you need to start again and use a multimeter as you go. If I was in closer I could be more help.
