Just got the game, and set it up. All worked fine.

I go and do something else, and when I turn around, the DMD is completely out, as are all playfield lamps.

Game still plays fine...flashers, solenoids, sounds, GI and switches are all okay. Nothing on DMD, and no insert lamps.

All fuses test fine.

Have no idea where to check next. Not overly familiar with Capcom's, and have no idea what would kill the DMD display AND the playfield insert lamps.

Suggestions?

All fuses test fine - does this mean you pulled them and checked with a meter ?

If all good I'd turn the game off and reseat power supply board connectors and then try again.

If still no go, then get the manual out and check voltage outputs of the power supply board and see if you lost any.

Yup, I pulled all fuses out and tested them with a meter. They are all okay.

I've done quite a bit of connector reseating, but will try again and focus on the power supply.

Has anybody had this happen before, or am I the first one in Capcom History?

Have a look at the back of the board with the big caps, notorious for failed solder joints.

Are you talking about the one that is mounted on the backside of the DMD panel?

Okay...it is a Capcom "Classic" boardset....so it doesn't have a seperate power board (like my Pinball Magic).

I did take out the power driver board....no cracked or dry solder joints anywhere. I did reflow some points on the big caps and on some connectors, but it didn't make any difference.

There appears to be no voltage getting out to the DMD. Still not sure how the playfield lamps are tied in to that mess.

(Also, since ALL lamps are board-controlled, why does the GI still work?)

Have no idea what to check/replace from here.

Some more notes:

I pulled and checked all fuses...and I checked for cracked solder joints on the Power/Driver board. I'm just not getting any voltage from the P/D board to the Display Power Board.

Second side note: I tested that Display Power Board in my Pinball Magic, and it worked fine). I can't test the P/D board in the Pinball Magic because it is a different boardset.
