I picked up an RFM this week. Same old story, it was working when I bought it. This is my first P2K and I really don't know where to begin.
To move it we removed the head which meant disconnecting the 25-pin cable to the driver board, the 9-pin to the coin door, and the power/speaker cable (2 and 3 pin). I also removed the monitor cable not realizing it didn't need to be removed.
I set it up in reverse, turned it on, and the computer in the head was noticeably louder than before. Nothing worked other than the head lamp and the PC was getting power. I removed the cables and went one by one. With nothing more connected than than the monitor cable, it worked and told me to connect the driver board. I did that and everything worked fine. It told me the coin door was open so I connected that cable and replaced the playfield. About the time I got the coin door closed and heard is fire off a few solenoids (ball trough maybe) the screen froze and the playfield went dead. I tried the same sequence again and I get nothing. Not even the monitor. The driver board is getting power and I can see some LED's on.
I'm looking through the manual and will research this today after some family activities, but if anyone can give me a headstart on what I need to do I would really appreciate it.
