What could it mean if my Funhouse will boot up without the 26 pin ribbon cable from the display plugged in but it will not boot up with it plugged in.
Of course I have no display I even bought a new pinscore LED display in that doesn't come on .
The machine will boot up with the pinscore display ribbon Cable in it has the green LED light on the back of the board so I think it's getting power but still no display.
Game will play as normal.
Thanks for any advice

Check for bent or missing prongs where you are plugging the ribbon cable.

Thanks. I checked that. I even switch the mpu and still have the same problem.

Was the original display working before you put the new display in?

What was happening everything was fine for the past 15 years.
While the machine will be turned on it would start to reset by itself. It would be back up then a lot of coils will go off and make a popping sound with the coils. Display would garble but would come back to normal.
I then switch CPU to see if that was the problem and with the display plugged in it wouldn't boot up. Without the display it would boot up and play as normal. I then thought I had a display problem so I bought the new display.
Now with the new display it'll boot up and play but no display.

I would definitely think it's a MPU problem because I change the ribbon cable and when I turned on the machine , It seems everything was going off display was blurry, many coils were popping so I quickly turn it back off .

Try reseating every ribbon cable in the game at each connection.
