I have a monopoly game. When playing the game shuts off and restarts? Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

Is it new to you? Has any work been done? I had a machine that would reset when a certain few things would happen and it ended up being a bad diode

Had it for a year. Have not worked on it. Just started acting up.

I could be wrong but my 1st thought is always bridge rectifier when that happens. But I would check all of the connectors 1st just in case something came loose (and the plug).

Reseat the plugs on the top left of the driver board and the bottom left of the mpu board (they join with each other) - this takes the 5V from driver to mpu. I can't remember the plug number, but it should have 5v and 12v written on the boards

If this fixes the problem, replace the header pins and plugs as it will happen again over time

I had the same problem with my TZ and it turned out to be a power drop from all the other games I had plugged into the same row of outlets on the same breaker. This I found out after I had it sent the boards out....Check the power to the machine from the outlet, like I should have done first. Good Luck

I am having a similar problem. Usually it happens when first turning on the machine. Is there a certain voltage or amps that I should be looking for in the outlet regarding this?
