Hey all, hoping someone could provide some help. I REALLY want to get my megatouch working again. If anyone could offer advice on how to get it running, I would really appreciate it. I'd be happy to pay for repair if someone is local to me that can swing by, or I could bring it to.
Model: MegaTouch ION 2008 (gray machine, 15 inch screen I think, joystick controls in front)
Here's the issue: I flip on the machine, no fans spinning (either system fans or PSU fans), the bill acceptor spins and makes noise for a second, completes it's cycle, and then the green light flashes on the bill acceptor, and that's all. Blank screen, no other nosies, nothing is happening. Motherboard doesn't have any swelling caps, it's not posting at all, psu fan still isn't turning (which would lead me to dead psu, but why is bill acceptor powered?).
Can anyone assist me, either over the forum, or if in the area? I tried to search online, read about touching the pins on the mobo to get it to power on, but touching pins doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I know a few years ago I had to do this to jump start it and it seemed rather easy and started up.
It's been 3 years since I've gotten this thing to work probably, and would love to use it again. Thanks all for reading.
