My GoldenEye machine started doing this all of a sudden.

Can anyone give me and idea of what's going on and where to start looking for the problem?

I haven't seen that exact problem, but it looks like it partially boots, then gets stuck in a loop. That flash sequence appears to be what happens when a fresh ball is in the shooter lane waiting to be launched.

I would start by checking (pressing them) connectors and socketed chips.

It looks like the game code is crashing but I dunno if it's ROMs, processors, interfaces or memory or what...

I've replugged all the connectors and reseated the game rom with no success. I have one of those ramtron flash memory chips in it in to replace the need for batteries. Could it possibly go bad and if so would it cause this particular issue?

Hey there! Got a moment?
