Looking at selling my Gorf.

Bought it working in Jan and now its not. Unfortunately my repair skills are not too good.

Please message me if you're interested.

Sorry to hear you're having so many problems with it.   As you've found owning a Gorf isn't for the faint hearted.   There isn't anyone (that I know of) that repairs these board stacks as I think you've found. The only thing you might find is someone with a working machine that can help you isolate which of the stack are bad.

Before you get inundated with the same questions it might be worth you putting a bit more detail about the cab and ideally some pictures.   Some detail about what's working and what's not, pics of the sideart, insides, etc will always help sell a cab quicker.

Hi Dan

So it was working fine then the gameplay and speech started to act funny. The game would often crash or reset. I recently cleaned and reseated all the socketed chips on the RAM board and now theres barely anything coming through on the monitor and there's no sound at all.
The monitor seems to be making faint pulsing noises.

I'm struggling to attach any pics but I'll keep trying.

Possibly too late, but did you definitely confirm that the power supply is OK?

Yeah but I have just tried checking the AC on the power supply and I'm stuggling to get a clear reading. +5, +12 and -5 are all coming out fine and going into the cage correctly. Could this still happen if the AC is not right? Someone has suggested a new power supply incase the power is dirty?

I’m sure James/RGP is hot with repairing these board sets.

May be worth popping him a PM.
