First rule is reseat the ribbon cables. Push the all down nice and tight.

Also, is there a credit dot? Is there any reported problems?

Yes, I own a JY. But the issue is not game specific.

When another WPC game had screen started freezing up the game would play even when frozen. I could unplug the data and power cable from the DMD, plug it all back in and the frozen image would come back. (I know, doing this with the game on is not cool kids)

So the MPU was running the game but the image in the RAM for the display was not getting refreshed. Even though I had reseated the cables I did the one from the CPU to the A/V board again and everything was fine.

So when you are trying to get it in test mode those beeps you hear are the game getting into the menu and all, but you just can't see it.

Just a thought. Those cable are the cause of issues like this most of the time.

ok, thanks, i'll order cables and try it out.

First check the ones you have. Sometimes the plastic connector that is crimped on the ribbon cable itself starts to separate.

My new ribbon cables arrived and it totally fixed my problem! Thank you so much for the sound advice and assistance!!!

It is nice when it is the cheap and easy fix. Glad it worked. Now go collect some junk
