Entering and Exiting the Self Test

You enter and exit the automated self-test procedure by turning the self-test switches on or off. The switches are located inside the coin door (a separate switch for each player station). The self-test consists of:

• A five-minute automated self-test of the ROM, RAM, the microprocessor, and the PC boards

• A Test menu from which you can run specific tests in case you receive error messages


If you are running a specific test and turn off the self-test switch to exit, you may need to proceed through all the screens in the submenu before you return to the attract mode.
