i bought a gold wings about a month ago and played it a lot. tonight i went to turn it on and the playfield lights up but the display doesnt. the backlight then lit up seemed delayed and finally the display lit up but the scroll text was moving very slowly and when i pushed play it just said 140 and the game wasnt working (pics below)
i took off the translite to check if it might have been battery damage but no batteries. the upper left board wasnt fully mounted the two bottom screw were off and there was a flashing red light not sure if its supposed to flash like that or not.
no idea where to start on this one. any advice? please help!

Try removing and reconnecting all of the connectors on the boards. Its been a while since ive worked on one, but i remember those were a known issue with these. Especially that interconnect on the bottom between the two boards.
