Any help is appreciated. I recently moved houses and ever since The Hobbit has been acting up. First it was turning off mid game. Then it was turning off and on. Then tonight it turned on with no sound and eventually shut itself down and will not turn on at all. Please help as this is my kids favorite game and I’m already getting grief from them lol

Outlet good ? Power cord in back of the game tight ? Any loose connectors inside ?

OK so if I plug from the outlet directly into the switching power supply the whole game boots up however there is no volume if you press the volume control the volume comes on and then turns back off.

I’m still not getting normal power I have 120 V coming in to the back of the machine at the filter box I have 120 V at the service outlet but for some reason it’s not making its way from that service outlet box into the power supply.I’m still not getting normal power I have 120 V coming in to the back of the machine at the filter box have have 120 V at the service outlet but for some reason it’s not making its way from that service outlet box into the power supply

I'd unplug the game. Unplug connectors. And using a meter check ohms on wiring and connectors, see if you have a voltage drop going on because bad wire, bad connector.
