Ive owned TAF for around 10 years but it got stored when it started to randomly restart.I have been trying to get it fixed the last 3 weeks and sent away the main driver board for repair.Well it came back and the machine is still doing random restarts.Sometimes its the flippers and it turns off or just about 10 seconds into a game it goes off.When you get multiball it always restarts.......is it the board?or the power supply but i had the machine running for 2 years with no problems at all.

And now to cap it all the sound has stopped.All of a sudden it just went off when i was playing it after it had been stored.Now that was 3 weeks ago.I have since bought a full led kit and this week after putting the last 2 bulbs in... 1 of which was the flasher near thing/telephone i ran a test and the sound was back on.That was wednesday......its been on since except this morning,turned on to do more testing with the restart problem and no sound again...

Its a great table and its just a shame i can't play it but i really want to get it up and running 100% again now i have all the led installed.It looks excellent

I had the same problem with a TZ and it was the ribbon cables. Try reseating them.
