i've spent the last few weeks sorting out a hurricane machine, finally last night got it completely working, all lights,flashers etc.. it was playing great.
went to turn it on today and its dead, its geting power the led's are on but no display, no lights, no sound nothing.. very strange, all fuses fine.
its abit cold where it is but nothing more than usual.

any ideas where i should start looking?

I am pretty new to this but the interconnect board is where I would start to look first. Check connectors, reseat and so on.

You might have some cracked solder joints. Try pulling the PCB and checking the solder side of the connectors.

I have just read some facts with regards to the molex connectors. They have a life of about 20 reseats. So, if you can remember which one got the game running look at replacing that connector. Do not continue to pull connectors on a regular basis. Glad you got it running again.
