What would cause a game to suddenly power off and not be able to turn in again? I was in the middle of a game of Dr. Who and it just turned off. I’ve tried powering on off and nothing happens.

Do you have a multimeter? Start by checking fuses. Take them out of the holder to check them don't check while still in holder.

Post a picture of the MPU and driver board so can see what LEDs are lit. From that, we can tell what may need to be measured.

Though, first check to see if the fuse blew in the power distribution box just inside to the right of the coin door.

Make sure the outlet is still hot and then check the fuse that is on the side of the cabinet just inside the door. 8 amp sb.

Thanks guys. I’ll get under the good soon and see what’s up. First time I’ve ever had a game just die mid-way through a game on me.

I was expecting to read about one of the actors that played Dr.Who having just died.

I have also seen this be the thermistor.

Is it wrong that I read this thread title and thought "A doctor with a huge pin collection just died; his collection is up for grabs!"

I’ll second this. My STTNG did the same thing and I had to replace a thermistor attached to that fuse holder. You may need to crack that open and take a look.

He didn’t die in the Christmas special, he just regenerated as a woman (to satisfy the political correct police).

ALSO your main fuse holder (twist style) could be bad or could have blown. 8amp.

Has to be a fuse or the outlet in the wall.

I hate safety measures!
