Hi I was playing my fish tales game when it suddenly locked up and the display went dead except for a single line that moves slowly down the display. If I reboot the machine it will get as far as the Fish Tales logo then blank out to the single line moving down my display. Any ideas? Thanks

I have not seen this issue myself but First thing I'd do is check fuses.
Also, does it make the bong sound when turned on? Check out http://www.pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC#Power-On_LEDs_and_Sound_Tones_.28Bongs.29 for troubleshooting

Thanks for the quick reply. I will check the fuses. It will get past the 'test' and give me a drop target error. Could that be the problem?

Drop target error wouldn't cause the not booting up issue.

Thanks LTG. I didn't think the drop target error would cause it to just die. I am going to check the fuses this morning. I really hope that's it.

Also, check cable ribbons on the back box. Check all your connections to make sure they are snug.
