So I was playing my newly acquired Getaway last night. Still trying to find out all the things that may need fixing but overall it has been working fine. During the game, the sound went and the speakers were softly humming. The dmd flickered a few times as well. Then suddenly it went dead. No lights, no display, no nothing. Pretty much like there was a power outage. So, I opened the back box, pushed in all the ribbons and plugs. I did also find a few that were coming lose as well. The game did turn back on and boot up fine, and played fine. I am just wondering if this is something I need to be concerned about. Was it just loose connections? Is there a kill switch that cuts of power to game to prevent damage if something was wrong? Could it be the fuses? Any ideas if I am going down a road where my game is in serious trouble, or should I not be worried since it came back on after re-seating plugs and ribbons? Also, wondering if this has happened to anyone else as well. Thanks for the help in advance!
