    Default Sammy Crash Bandicoot Bad LCD?

    Just got an old Sammy Crash Bandicoot Pachinko in, the unit powers on, animatronics move, screen boots up then goes black after 20-30 seconds.... if you drop a ball in the center pocket quickly you can watch the reels spin and the game plays with musics & sounds (and you can continue to play with the black screen - just noting to see)
    I checked all the wire connectors, changed the dongle(no reason just trying), and I have a huge heavy duty 10A transformer on it so it's not for lack of power...... I do get a yelling girl error al-al open door but it seems that the one door contact I can find is broken b/c holding it in doesn't do anything. That's the only odd thing I can find.... anyone have any ideas??

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I know nothing about the Crash or an Sammy pachis, so I'm very little help but here I go anyway!! Is there an error code on the back??

    Did you actual unplug and plug in the screen connectors?? That works sometimes.. (See, not very helpful )

    Post pics of the front and back and someone might be able to spot something..

    Thanks for the help, I didn't check the LCD ribbons but I'll pull it apart and check that too.

    I would check your supply voltage. I have had pefectly good screens shut down a minute or so (up to 10 min) due to power drop at the transformer.

    Okay, so hours later I pulled the cell and opened up each and every compartment and checked every connection, including the screen ribbon (which is a delicate piece indeed!).
    Put it all back together and no luck. the screen still powers on for just about 20 seconds or so, then and here's where I'm stuck? I think? I can here a very faint click when it shuts off.... so I think a relay is dropping.... or I could just be imagining it?

    DC I have the whole thing powered by 10AMP transformer so if anything I'm over powering it but this one can run any of my other machines so I don't think it's a transformer issue here.

    If you have a clue shout it out otherwise it's a nice colorful & noisy paperweight.
