Hi everyone, so I have a power up issue with my ace pot of gold, which has impact parts. What happens is, after i haven't played it for a couple of days or more it doesn't boot up straight away, just the coin insert light comes on and you literally have to leave it on for about 5/10mins and then switch off, wait and put back on and it eventually boots up. It sometimes stops halfway through the reels moving, like its really struggling to get to full power. It also resets back to the jackpots on the reels and 0% aim. I have replaced the processor board battery and all tracks on that pcb work fine, which rules that out. Im thinking this may point to a psu problem? The two red lights on the motherboard come on fine too, with the second flashing after a few seconds depending how cold it is. Ive heard its quite a common problem with JPM Impacts not liking being switched off for sometime or being cold. How easy is it to fix a psu on them, seems far over my head, but getting into the microelectronics side of things, have to really considering how old these machines are. They dont make them like this anymore!

Probably worth mentioning, if its been on all day for a few days it boots up straight away or as normal.

Could be a dry solder joint on the PSU board, or a dodgy old connector which has become oxidised.
