I have a Maygay Cashflow that was off in my garage for just over a year, went to turn it on and it doesnt initialise

the power comes on and the lights come on inside the machine but the display just has nothing on it

Not the best environment to leave any piece of electrical equipment. Try obvious things, like connectors and corroded plugs..

 

Capacitors are well known to fail, given this sort of treatment. Looks as though you are going to have to go through the machine with a multimeter until you find the problem I'm afraid .


If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call ?????   The Council !!!!!!!!

Guess this is the same machine that you were sending me the roms or board (which I was returning) to you back in December that I am still waiting for a reply about.
The machine was supposed to be rotting then so it ain't gonna work now.
And yes the island you live on, the Isle Of Wight I think you said is in the UK, so postage would be as to send anywhere in the mainland, not that it mattered as I was willing to cover the cost to dump the sound roms to make the machine available but again...... no reply. Thanks.
