Stern reboots are tricky, it will come back. I would say you have a loose chip under the battery holder, or the batteries have started to do the primal oozzz they tend to fail in a way hard to spot on sterns.… when it comes back be ready with the information.

Unseat the power connector at the top of the board top and center I want to say it's nine pin it's a big connector if the reset stops then you have carbon buildup only thing I know to do is replace the connector or run a jump I had to run a jump. This is the driver board I speak about by the way

Quoted from schudel5:

I think he meant to say reseat (power off, unplug and plug back in) that 15-pin connector at J16. If you unplug the 15-pin connector at the top of the driver board (the larger board at the bottom of the backbox) the game won't do anything. That 15-pin connector at J16 provides 12V and 5V to the CPU board (big board at the top of the backbox). With that unplugged the CPU has no power.
It appears you reseated the connector and it lasted almost a year. This means you need to REPLACE the 15-pin male header and the female connector pins at J16 on the power driver board. I guarantee you this is the issue. 100% of the reset issues I've dealt with on Whitestar games are attributed to that single 15-pin connector. You need to replace BOTH the male header AND female connector pins.

That's what I was trying to say. Could not find the parts have a link to them I currently have a hack.

Thanks for the part list we actually disagree on the part it's the 9 pin connector I am talking about. That was my issue - however one never knows.
