Tell us more. Did you test voltages?

I can't believe that I'm going to possibly identify this cabinet instead of the MASTER JOHN himself.

Here's the cabinet identity chart on this forum. Look at the Bally/Midway picture, 3rd row from the top, second cabinet from the RIGHT side. Satan's Hollow. Is that it?

Is it?! The bezel angle was throwing my off. It's wrong.

You could have a weak tube. Post some photos? If you crank the pots do the colors fill the entire screen?

Oh... you're right. That is an LCD. I didn't catch that.

Who knows what's up with it then.

How do you know it has been restored? It could be 100% original.

One just sold for I think $4k on ebay. That's a good price me thinks.

Agreed on not all machines listed with the word Arcade.  I live in Charlotte, NC and most games get gobbled up quick by a business near here that buys them cheap off of Craig's List and then sets their price at $1200 or more.

I was fortunate in finding a Centipede in fantastic condition for $225.  I am confident I was able to find this machine first because the seller listed it as a Video Game and never mentioned the word Arcade.   I'm Looking forward to trying Chrome!

Awesome! Congrats/

I used 3/4" on mine and it overhangs a tiny bit. It's not too bad.

Tempest are never junk in my eyes.

If you can find one that was converted into another game, it would be a good candidate.

Holy cow! $10k!!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Find a junk Tempest and convert it. Smiley

Try reseating or swapping the CPUs.

This has happened to me many times with these boards.
