T3 - Bild 01 (resized).jpg

#1 5 months ago

I have just bought a T3 which I knew didn't work properly. The first video shows how a start goes. The display is locked with som numbers on it. It is not possible to start the service menu.

The second video shows the next start attempt. Now, the start button does nothing (except producing a sound).

Any suggestions?

Second video won’t start a game as you need to add credits.

Ok, but I can't reach the menu to set it to free play and the coin mechanism is gone…

Hmm...Have batteries in the game? If so, remove them and turn on the game. Any improvement?
If not, reseat the ribbon cable(s) between the CPU and driver boards.

Please post a picture of the CPU board.

Ok, I will remove the batteries and see what happens.

I have reseated the ribbon cables. I have removed the batteries, waited a long while and restarted the machine. No improvement. See video and image below.
