    Busted space invaders table arcade game

    Got it from a friend, thought maybe I could make a buck. I was wrong. Now it's free!

    Sound and power work, no picture.

    Come get it in Tahoe vista or truckee. Its in the bed of my truck.

    Shoot me a text.

    I'll take it! Can I get it sometime this weekend.

    If I can fix it, it will go to a good home:




    Thank you!

    FYI - what you describe is what game collectors call 'playing blind' - the most likely culprit is the now 35+ yr old capacitors in the monitor chassis. If you have soldering skills, you could replace them and see if that solves your issue. Be aware - monitors can hold significant (perhaps deadly) voltage, so look up how to discharge them before starting work.

    Nice setup!

    If I had room, I'd be more into it. I've had a few gigantic capacitors in my car stereo setup (3 farad), but to be honest I'm just being lazy.

    I had the idea to help a friend move the machine and maybe make a buck or two but now it's stuck in the way and I'm over it.

    It's all yours! Hit me up this weekend.
