A week or so ago my Hs2 started resetting itself mid-game. Then all the tachomoter lights and others on the same matrix failed. Then it started doing the wrong noises when I started it, like they were all out of whack, and now GI is not working, but there is a big brief flash from the lights when I turn the machine off. What is going on? I'd like some advice before I change the power board with the one in my TAF... I don't want to do any more damage. I have reset all the connectors on the power board and their corresponding ends on other boards but this hasn't had an effect. What about the fact that the problem grew the way it did? Any help welcome

Just saw this post...hope it's fixed by now. If not, first I'd try reseating all the connectors and the socketed chips on the CPU and sound boards. Swapping power boards might be interesting (you never know), but if you're getting weird noises as well, I don't think it's the power board.

Post an update and I'll see if I can think of anything else...

I had a T2 that was acting the same way. Turned out it was just the 20 year old ribbon cables. Ed at Great Plains made new ones for something like $12. Fixed it right up. Now I always replace ribbon cables when I get a new game.
