I've got a MC cockpit that has an issue. Up until recently, the game worked
all the way. Now, when I power the game on, it blows the wall circuit
breaker. When I unplug the monitor, it powers up and plays fine. As soon as
the monitor power is plugged back in, the wall circuit breaker blows again.
All fuses in the cab are good. I've tried two different known working
monitors in the game and get the same result with both of them. Other games
in the shop work just fine, so I know it's a problem somewhere in the MC
itself. This game was working 100% before it was stored. Nothing has been
changed. Any ideas?

Sounds like you have a major ground short to find. Do you have a newer
monitor to try that doesn't require the isolation transformer? One of
the newer Vision Pro monitors (for example) you could plug into the
wall isolated from the game and run the RGB video through. My bet is
it will work fine that way.

If you moved the game, you have a new short.
Those big cockpit style games a notorious for that after being moved.

I did move it around before plugging it back it the first time again. I'll
go over to the shop today and check out all of the wiring. Thanks.
