Defender won't enter free play mode
« on: September 05, 2015, 12:36:07 pm »
Hoping an expert level member can identify most likely issue...

FYI I changed to a switching power supply years ago (voltage checked as accurate). All board interconnect wiring cables were replaced several years ago. The most recent fix 5-6 months ago was swapping all 4116 RAM to 4164. Currently NO ram or rom errors show up in diagnostics.

Game starts up in book-keeping or normal play mode. I'll change the batteries to see if that fixes that.

The main problem is I can't get it to enter "free play". Prior to now I could scroll through book keeping and it would return to free play. If Free play (17) at was 0 I would change to 1 and that did it. Now even though free play is set to 1 it will not enter free play. Is this most likely a RAM or ROM issue?? ???
Thanks, Robert

When in free play mode you don't get to hear the coolest coin up sound in history.

Sorry, I'm no help to your situation.  :dunno
