so I picked up this pin 2000 revenge from mars machine a few days ago, got it home... plugged it in, turned it on and... nothing
power supply fan not turning. removed pc case, removed power supply and it's cover to find leaky cap.
ordered new power supply and new cpu fan... installed both today, thought woo hoo we gonna play some RFM... not.

took some pics... take a look
when I flip the power switch I hear the speakers and the monitor come on, have lights on the computer box, prism card, control bard under pf, and in the main box under the pf. any help would be appreciated, also have light in the tube... see photos

noticed the "health" light is not lit on the cabinet board

i literally saved 4 video game cabinets and 2 pinball machines from the sledge hammer and dumpster... the lethal weapon 3 works but needs work... stuff on the way for that one as well... thought maybe the power supply and cpu fan was all this one might need

Check the caps on the motherboard. If swollen or leaking they need to be replaced. I would start there.

How did you get it for free?

caps looked fine... and I guess if nothing is coming through the mother board then the pinball machine wont do anything at all? I have nothing going on the play field at all

A good friend of mine, his grandfather worked in the industry for about 50 years... he still has machines on route. He is in the hospital, and not looking good that he is coming home and is headed to assisted living. My friends mom wanted everything out of the house and his workshop, so she told him to get a sledge hammer break the sides and backs off of everything and throw it in the dumpster she had rented. He called me and asked if I would want this stuff... machines, boards, power supplies, locks, bulbs, fuses... basically this guys whole operation at the house... I said how much? his mom said you get the ms pac man going and you can have it all... well, the ms pac man is up and running, delivering it back to her friday... so I'm trying to get these two pins good, so I can play

Good luck with this!
That would have been a minor tradgedy to bash and dump those games.

My Pin2K started to not power up completely a few months ago. The translite would power up and everything else but the game. The caps on the mother board were bulging a bit which meant they needed replaced. I used the higher voltage caps but you have to be very careful with your soldering. That MB isn't made anymore and is expensive. There are 5 Caps on the mother board to replace. Once I did that the game started booting properly.

This probably is your problem from what you've described.

According to the LEDs out on the driver board you're missing a bunch of voltages going to the playfield.
