Quoted from whitey:

Ok pics coming , question for other owners ??? When I turn my game on it goes through it’s boot up , checks off everything ok then shuts off. This game has build date of 2007 and the counter on the coin door shows 525 ? I’m assuming that’s total plays . The games Mint
Any help is appreciated

What do you see on the screen as it boots up? Do you have a video you can share?

Could you post a video of the booting up process?

#55 70 days ago

I will try, it goes through a long process
Showing ok at the right of the screen
Then just when it shows bowl o Rama on the screen off she goes

Do you happen to have another PC monitor? You can open the cab, and plug it into the other port on the video card (the game mirrors the same video to each port) and see what's actually happening. The bowl o rama monitor is only capable of displaying 800x600, so there might be something happening with the video output once it gets done with the first process. Heck, the xorg service could be failing and you wouldn't know since it changed the resolution lower.

I was thinking of contacting Namco and sending both boards out ?

Also is there a kit to update these ?
Lcd screen etc

No, there's no real update to the screen.

I have owned this game for about 8 years. I have been trying to find a new mounting plate for the track ball but it is always out of stock on the Namco parts page. I have not gotten responses from them when I asked if they will get more in the future.

Are you looking for brand new? If not, I might have a used one

The one on my game is pretty scratched up. I would prefer brand new but I would consider a nice used one.

I've sanded and re-cleared one previously and it turned out pretty good. So, that might be an option too

Ok looking for someone who has done this upgrade . Namco sold me update kit for bowl o rama but no installation directions
It replaces aged out USB that fails when starting the game up

What did this cost?

Really hoping the big lebowski software gets leaked. I cant believe it hasn't yet.

They’ve been selling that kit for a couple years now. It’s pretty much plug and play. If anyone else wants this, just buy the ssd, a usb enclosure, and write the usb image to the drive.

Seems the supply is drying up. This should sell.
