I would start with cleaning the contacts on the game, and if that doesn't work, then the contacts on the board.

I've had this problem, the black plastic cart guide was not making the proper connection from the pcb to the cart.Try putting the cart in and push the black cart guide back towards the main pcb and hold it, hopefully the game will boot and then you know what the problem is.

Worked for me anyway.

And if that doesn't work, then I'm afraid you're going to have to ship the Neo Geo motherboard off to a repair facility.
