Hello guys,

I have the game running on free play for weeks with no issues. However, it started to freeze during gameplay and attract mode. On the next boot up the game freezes on start up as can be seen from the picture.
I ran a ram/rom test and all were ok. Cant seem to find much online about Sony ZN-1 troubleshooting.

Any advice?

Thanks @Hammy! I'll check the capacitors on motherboard and see if there's a faulty here and there.

I highly doubt it's the caps in your case, however the one by the bios is vital and worth swapping out.

Test the romboard on another motherboard....

Unfortunately, I don't have a spare ZN1 motherboard, I have 3 ZN2 complete setup though which I cant use for the testing. I find it odd that it played well on other cab for few mins then it stuck on Arika start up logo.

Perfect, the romboards are identical just jumpers / gal / rom swap.
