Donkey Kong Cocktail (4 Boards)

Sound and video issue. Close to working...

Original Nintendo Donkey Kong cocktail table arcade game boardset. This the 4 board version of the game, typically seen in Donkey Kong cocktail games and some early upright Donkey Kongs.  Boardset has been tested, it boots up and plays but has a video and sound issues.  The video starts up as good most times and then develops color issues.  Looks like it be a bad video rom (or socket), but we have done no troubleshooting.  The issue comes and goes, sometimes video is fine.  The game is also missing music and possibly some other other sounds (some sounds are present).  Boardset appears to be complete and in fairly good condition.  

Boardset is sold as-is, with issues as described. Should be a relatively easy fix, we just don't have the time and motivation to work on it.

Quick Game Facts
Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong single-handedly transformed Nintendo from a small Japanese toy company to later become one of the biggest video game companies in the world. Donkey Kong was (and still is) one of the most popular arcade games ever released.

Donkey Kong was probably the second most merchandised game of its time, behind Pac-Man. The game went on to spawn two classic sequels, Donkey Kong Jr. and Donkey Kong 3 as well as a slew of other games involving its characters on home systems. Donkey Kong and its star character, Mario are probably one of most well known video game characters today, with new games still be released featuring them.

Coin-Op Overview

In the game, your player plays as "Jump Man" (later known as Mario) in search of his captured girlfriend who has been taken by none other than Donkey Kong. This game is a classic platform style game, consisting of four levels.

You control Jump Man using a 4-way joystick for movement and a button for jumping. The joystick does not center, so it feels slightly different than other games (Pac-Man for example). The buttons are slightly smaller than the standard 1" buttons, so if they are replaced they need to be replaced with similar Nintendo buttons, or the holes in the control panel need to be slightly enlarged.
