alrighty congo on location at richfield bowl. its been fine. went to location, game was on, display was out, crack across front of display like a windshield cracks.

replaced display with new display, 2 weeks later, same thing happened to new display.
now 2 displays have had this done to them

anyone every seen this? i suspect its the display driver pcb in the game, butcongo display.jpg nothing looks crazy on it and no fuses blow on it etc.

no pool sticks in room crazy events. nothing happened physical to the game. the first time i wasn't sure, this time i know for a fact. the game was even moved from one location in building to another. something within the game makes it happen. all other games in both rooms are fine . security cameras also confirm it happened on its own.
the first display it did it too actually had a full crack all the way across the display. both display circuit boards on the displays themselves are fine, nothing burnt, no burnt smells. same goes for the dmd driver pcb, which is why im puzzled.

Temp in room is fine. Remember, it was move after it did it the first time..many other machines in same room. its not an environment or physical vandalizing issue. Something within the game.
