I have a GOTG built in 2017. The machine will not boot up when powered on. Every now and again it will but that was a few days ago. Nothing since. I tried searching but very little came up about the spike 2 cpu.

Stern tech support let me know today that I need a new CPU board. Part # 509-1003-01

This thing is like $800. Ouch! It may be down a while.

Can these boards be fixed? Anything else I could try besides take out the SD card and put it back in.

I have it going for the time being. It’s definitely an SD card issue. Crazy that the 3 I have all didn’t work.

Quoted from Invi00:

Does anything show up on your screen? like stern logo or nothing at all?
If there is stern logo on screen then there are things you should try:
1. Swapping cards
2. Take out that flat battery that holds time (does not reset scores, these are on the card) and then power the game up. If it works then turn the game off and install the battery again.
3. Try both above at the same time.

I would sometimes get the logo screen and it would say initiating................

I did not ever remove the battery though. Good suggestions.
