Good afternoon, I got a Dracula game that when you turn the game on, everything locks on like, coils, flashers, etc.. It has all relatively new rotten dog boards in the backbox. It has all new ribbon cables. The person before me had a technician out twice and fixed it for a bit, but it went right back to it. I guess he reseated it. I also heard those Rotten Dog Driver boards had some issues. The fuses that are currently blown right now is F104 and F105. I don't know if that information would help, but... Any suggestions on where to start, what to look for etc.. I was thinking maybe the fuses F104 and 105 would break it down and help me eliminate some other components, but that's just a guess. Any help would be grateful. I normally would get a tech out but with this virus plus the fact I would love to learn myself. Thanks everyone and stay safe.

I’ve never heard of this behavior before but whenever something really wacky happens, I always make sure the ribbon cables are on correctly.

Good luck. I’m sure someone way smarter than me will chime in eventually.

I had a similar issue. It ended up being a bad transistor on the new RD aux driver board that was causing the blanking circuit to be inoperable on startup.

The surge of power on startup caused my f103,104, and 105 to blow.

When you power it on, LED 201 on the MPU board should light up for a few seconds and then go off. You’ll know the blanking circuit is the culprit if your LED 201 does not light up when powering it on.
