The power supply board was rebuilt, all voltages are were they suppose to be. I was able to get it working a couple of times by unplugging 5VDC and other connectors. The interesting thing is, once I get it to work, It will be working for as long as I turn the machine on once a day. If I let it sit for a week without turning it on, it goes dead. Last time I was able to see it coming to life for a split second and then it went dead again. I didn't replace the ribbon cable, but I did flip it on both ends, no effect. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My next step is to get the replacement, but I don't want to just through $$ away. Thank you.

That signal should be Low for about 500msec after the power is turned
on, then goes High - which is close to Vcc or 5.00VDC.

enough about electronics to read a schematic and be able to test the
