So I sold a CFTBL - a nice one - to an office building. I sent them a basic maintenance guide which I guess they didn't bother to read.
Game was having a display issue so I went by to check it out.
It sure was hot in that game room. I asked them if they have been turning their games off at night (They also have a new Stern KISS).
Nah. The Creature has been on - 24/7 - for over a week. Like it's a server.
That KISS game has probably been on for about 3 months straight. They said they've never turned it off. Not once.
So what's the longest you've had a game on for? What problems do you see this causing? At the minimum you are looking at unneeded stress on components, and certainly premature aging. But that KISS game - I'm wondering how long you can leave a game on - even a brand new one - without starting to see problems. 6 months? A year?
I've asked the guys to start routine power down at night (it's a 9 to 5 office!) and hopefully they will comply. I think the display board is cooked.
