Howdy! My first post for my first machine with my first issue! Just picked up this Creature in great working order and am super excited to dive into this new addiction.
I've perused a number of relevant threads on this site, and have intentions of going down the PinWiki diagnostic checklist for this baby but I figured I would reach out to this awesome community of folks who actually know their stuff. I'm a fairly capable, yet still extremely terrified and wet behind the ears, dude.
So, began experiencing random reset issues. Research led to all signs pointing towards low voltage, most likely from the wall. Before I got around to testing, one evening it went totally dark while playing. No reset or anything. I powered down and powered back up. The boards are receiving power, yet no lights anywhere and the DMD displays nothing save for a line of dashes across the top row. Pic attached for reference there.
Again, I'm about to start the troubleshooting train but wanted to jump in to this rad community. If you have any thoughts or advice for a newbie, please feel free to chime in. Preemptive thanks for your time and cheers!
