Arcade Arrival and Error

Managed to pick the arcade machine up today, here's the ad from when I bought it:

FOR SALE A FAULTY  SNK MVS NEO-GEO ARCADE MACHINE
BOUGHT THE CABINET WHILST IT WAS STILL WORKING A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.
IT WAS BOUGHT AS A MAME PROJECT, BUT NEVER GOT ROUND TO RETRO FIT THIS CABINET.
IT HAS BEEN IN STORAGE EVER SINCE.
POWERED UP TO TEST, BUT SCREEN DIDN'T COME ON.IT DID INITIALLY SOUND UP, BUT THIS ALSO DIED AFTER A FEW ATTEMPTS.
THE CABINET IS IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION, BUT THERE ARE SCRATCHES & WEAR.
THERE'S TWO WAYS TO LOOK AT THIS SALE:
EITHER YOU WANT THE CABINET TO MAME PROJECT, WHICH WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT PLATFORM TO START.                                                                                                           ( MDF FOR THE CABINET , T MOULDING & JOYSTICKS/P.BUTTONS  ALONE,  WILL COST £££££.LET ALONE THE MAN HOURS AND TOOLS REQUIRED) I'VE DONE IT!!                     OR                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          YOU MAY WANT THE MACHINE FOR SPARES & REPAIR(THE 5 SLOT MOTHER BOARD , SLOT MECH & METAL SLUG2 & KING OF FIGHTERS 99 MIGHT BE WORKING)SOME OF THESE PARTS ARE RARE AND ALSO COST £££££.
THE CABINET IS 65CM WIDE, 78CM DEEP & 178CM TALL.  IT WEIGHS 120KG.
THIS WILL REQUIRE A TRANSIT SIZE VAN TO TAKE AWAY....................
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO ASK.
I NEED TO FREE UP SOME SPACE IN MY WORKSHOP.
I DO HAVE A 20INCH CRT MONITOR THAT I WILL CHUCK IN FREE IF YOU WANT IT.

Anyway, brought it home and powered it up. Took a few minutes but it did start and the monitor eventually came to life but its failing POST:


Off to do some research on it but at least the screen works :)
