Where to begin - 20th Anniv Console repair
« on: November 05, 2013, 08:49:10 PM »
Greetings fellow Dirkheads!!!

I stumbled into the chance of buying a 20th Anniv. console but it will not startup. It DOES power on (Marquee lights up and monitor turns on but no activity or sound)
I am not going to sit here and ask for step-by-steps.. but I was wondering if there is a STARTING point someone can point me to as far as obtaining a manual for this console.  It has the Digital Leisure logo on the side of it which makes me think it is a newer console (DVD rather than laser disc player, etc) ..but I really dont know where to start to even find the correct TYPE of manual.

I know the game is in good condition minus this issue because I have played it at the prior owners house and it was always well kept, so I am hopeful it is a repairable issue.

I appreciate everyone's time and glad to be here !

-Kav   ;D

Hi Kav,

Can you post pictures of your 'console'?

I have all the photos I thought would be relevant.  I am ASSUMING (because I like making an @$$ out of myself....) that this is some type of OEM setup with just an emulator of some kind.


These are taken from the back of the unit inside the cabinet


I again thank you for your time and thoughts

Ok, so with reasearch I have found that this is an "Ultracade" system and even found a manual.  Ultracade appears to be long gone.. is any current company covering support of these consoles...or is this going to be repair-101 for me?
