G07-CBO chassis. Very common, should do just fine.


First, address the power issue. Check to ensure all of your "dead man" switches are pulled out or pushed in. These are the white rectangular switches with 4 wires at the back, and a round pole in the middle front. I can see one in the middle right of your images, and there might be one more at the coin door. These are active when pushed in, or pulled out. When they are in their middle state, they kill all power to the machine. Yours may only have two states, pushed in or middle. If that is the case you'd need to make sure they are pushed in (by a door making contact with them) or put a piece of duct tape over them to keep them down.

If you are sure the dead man switches are in an enabled state, now check your main power switch. This will be located on the outer top of your cabinet, should be silver.

If you still don't have power, put your multi meter leads on the bottom two wires of that skinny blue "brick" power supply and check for 120V AC (or close to it, 110-130V AC). If you have power there, your cabinet is "On". This is good.

Next check your DC Voltage outputs on the blue brick power supply. Put the black multimeter lead on the GND terminal (either of the two marked), and then place the red multimeter lead on +5V DC, and +12V DC outputs to check for power there. If you have power at these terminals, you have logic power to your PCB. This is good.

Next check for AC power at the monitor. There is a clearish/whitish two pin molex connector with black wires going from the bottom transformer to your monitor. Stick your multimeter leads in the back of the connector and try to touch the metal portion inside. If you can't do that, you may have to unplugg the connector and check the end coming from the transformer at the bottom of the cabinet. You should see between 100-110 V AC coming from that connection.

If you have power in all of those places you have either a monitor or PCB issue. If you are missing a voltage in any of the places just checked, post where and we can go through troubleshooting/repair steps.
