Hi PSers,

I recently acquired a neglected Williams Taxi that doesn’t boot up on the first flip of the power switch. Some lighting comes on but that’s it. If I toggle the switch off and back on the machine plays perfectly with no errors.

Boards and batteries look great actually. Fuses are good.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Quoted from RacingPin:

Can you enter a setting (free play let’s say) and then shut the machine off for sometime. Then get it to boot up again the way you say and the settings is still saved?

Yes. Batts are saving high scores and free play.

Quoted from RonSwanson:

I had a similar problem on Earthshaker. Fixed it by replacing a capacitor on the MPU. C30 I believe.

Thanks. I’ll investigate that.

FWIW on the first flip of the switch, GI is the only thing that goes on.
