So I’ve had my restored Flash Gordon for some time, but this is the first big issues I’ve had with it. I own a couple early solid state pins, but my knowledge of repairs on this system is almost non-existent. This FG is my baby
My FG has Alltec for the MPU, solenoid driver, and LEDLamp driver boards. It still has the original sound board. Has all LED lights installed.
Anyway it basically went dead on me when I turned the machine on. For anyone familiar with the startup process, this is what happened...
1) turned game on
2) heard the usual alternating startup beeps
3) heard the usual “whooooom” tone
4) drop targets popped up & reset as usual
Then nothing. Did not progress to the second “whooooom” tone. The playfield GI lights remain on. The backbox lights remain on. All score displays are out. Game is dead in the water. When turning on/off now, only the backbox & playfield GI lights come on. The 2 rollover target bulbs are lit at top left of playfield, but rest are off. I don’t see any diagnostic lights lit on the Altec MPU or Light driver board. See pics.
I’d start by checking fuses, but not even sure where they are located on these games.
