Right now I don't plan to go back until I can put together a plan to diagnose the problems.  Next week at the earliest.

Ragarding the comment about being connected at the MPU underneath the specified connectors, if I recall correctly, they are identical pinouts (i.e. can plug into top OR bottom).  I can check schematic when I get home tomorrow, but you should be ok on that.  For the (-) switch, did you verify the wires did not break off the switch tabs?

You mention no light to the start button- does the button work (i.e. start a game?)

I verified that all the buttons had connected wires.  It will not start a game or even add credits through the coin mechs.  I only got into the Utilities menu to set up FREE PLAY by grounding the black wire off of the connector at J3 on the Coin Door Interface board.

this game worked before the batteries were swapped.

can you take that MPU to test in another game? maybe it's not that. but I'd make sure. :)
