Space Invaders cab, will not power on, easy fix?

by aaron Sat May 31, 2014 2:59 pm

I'm at a garage sale. Someone is selling a space invaders cab for $100. Great shape but won't power on. Worth it? How expensive is this to fix?

Could be a $50 power-supply?
Bad wires?
Buy it and learn.

Like bryan_65 said, it could be any number of issues. Break out the multimeter and get to it. But first pictures!

That is in really really good shape. Just please dont destroy it by adding a multiple button Control Panel to it. If you cant get it fixed locally, Ill buy it from you and give you a dynamo and what you have spent on it. You are only four hours away.

there's a guy selling a 12V power supply conversion kit here; thinking that might be the easiest way to go if the original PSU is dead. fast, i might be PM'ing you for some help with this thing if that's ok. i want to get it working and keep it as original as possible; the glass, control panel and artwork is in such nice shape, and the board looks pristine. like i said i'll take some pics tonight.
