I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.
I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.

I grew up playing arcade games, and currently maintain a collection of over 20 classic arcade games. I was featured in an article in the Columbus Dispatch on classic arcade collecting, have contributed to Atari's 80 Greatest Hits video game, and am active in the online arcade collecting community.

That's actually a really good question! There are several different ways to keep your games in like-new condition: 1) Sun damage- Make sure that your games and systems are kept out of long-term
Hi Justin, I think you may have hit the nail on the head with the US/Canadian discrepancy. When the unit was upgraded to a GT2005C originally, the security chip would have likely been programmed with
Hi Fran, What you likely touched was either the ceramic resistor or the audio amp, both of which get very, very hot on the board (and this is normal, oddly enough!) What I am guessing is the problem
Hi LJ, It sounds like you're having a motherboard issue. The battery is for the CMOS circuitry, and shouldn't really affect anything to cause the errors that you're getting. There is a possibility that
