i will look at the connections - again as I mentioned the original owner had spent alot of time (he passed away - so have no idea where he left off) all of the connections have tape numbering on them so i think he did a good job not screwing up the harnesses - but will follow them thru - i have the manual with the connections to verify.

no progress - tried the scan disk that I removed - no change.  checked the 4 wire harnesses going to the monitor - all connect to correct plugs.
left running for 20 minutes no change. Noticed the fan in the monitor box is not working?  I saw mention about a fan in some threads.   Latest video display didn't show any new messages

The fan issue does not relate directly to your issue but it does need to be solved. I bought one off ebay pretty cheap. In watching the video you first sent me I see one thing that stands out. At one point it says
"IVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION"
"INVALID MEDIA TYPE"
Let me run the boot process on one of my visions and compare. In the meantime, make sure there are no other jumpers installed on the monitor's board. I don't knkow what all they do but J1 is the only jumper on mine.
Stand by....

Ok, never mind.
"IVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION"
"INVALID MEDIA TYPE"
is nothing. mine says the same thing and boots fine. I'm starting to think that your monitor is is just fine. Normally, after the "initializing, please wait...", you should be able to look down at your VFD display and, if all is well, you get "MS Verify: App Start". What does your VFD say?

I'm starting to think Cowboy or qbert, can't remember which, may have nailed it. Connection issue. Both the machine and the monitor appear to act normal but are waiting for signals from eachother in order to proceed. Without that signal it's just stuck.

Take some pictures of the harness connections on the top box and where they go on both ends.

Need pictures of where the connections go!

i corrected the pictures - I chased the 4 connections from the vision unit to  the lower module connection - the wires all match color wise to the module and to the wiring in the vision unit - so all 4 connections pass correctly to the lower module Which leave the wiring from the lower module to??  will chase back to the motherboard/power distribution next.

I haven't had a vision machine for years so my memory is foggy. Are there any cards, like ram, plugged into the topbox computer motherboard? If so, you might try cleaning the edge connectors and reinserting them

Rather than tracing the harness all the way to the motherboard, lets take it in sections. On the back of the monitor there is a 10 netplex connector. This is the highway between the MPU and the monitor. Take a pic of where it goes first after leaving the monitor.

the J2 and J3 plugs to the motherboard were reversed - I checked the wiring from the monitor and round that error - don't know if that may have caused damage;  no change to the game.  Strange that IGT would have 2 plugs abutting that had the same plug design.
Still getting the waiting on the monitor -  after the nexplex loading display the bv cycles so it sounds like it almost ready to game up.  Also the tower lights - both are lit if that means anything.
With this game there was a spare cpu and motherboard - he may have changed them out trying to fix whatever issue he was chasing.
Would running a CLEAR do any good?

Long shot- I had a 500 series MPU that would not work in one of my Reel Touch machines. Doing the same type of thing that your vision is doing. (Waiting on display) I installed that MPU in a standard S2K three reel machine and it worked fine. Put it back in the Reel Touch got the same waiting on display. I replaced the MPU and then the Reel Touch worked without issues.

I originally changed out the CPU and that fixed the Reel Touch.  I was not convinced the old CPU was bad so I stuck it in a 3 reeler to check it out and it worked in that machine. Puzzled I stuck it back in the Reel Touch and again it did not work.  Put it back in the 3 reeler and it has been in there operating for about two years now.
