Game booted and display worked fine, shopped game and now when I turn on top display shows scrambled lines and it does not boot. When first turned on there are 4 ding, ding, ding,ding, then a dong. (If that makes sense). The 3 LEDs come on on the board and the middle one flashes continuously while the 2 on the end stay on. I did unplug the ribbon cable to the display from the board while cleaning. Where to start looking??? Thanks

It sounds like you have the cable on backwards. Double check that on both ends of the cable, the red stripe goes to pin 1.

Not sure. Would it hurt to flip cable around? Red stripe on board on left side and red stripe on display on left side?

No, it wont hurt. Pin 1 should be clearly labeled on the boards though.

Winner winner chicken dinner! Display working but saying adjustment failure. Went through the settings and seems to be working fine? Thank you, I will be able to sleep good tonight!

Adjustment failure means that at some point you pulled the batteries out with the machine off. It will say that until you go in to the menues for the first time.
