Question about Arcade Golden Tee Unplugged Video Cabinet
The first and easiest thing to check is the voltage supply to the game board. This should be 5 VDC, but may need to be 5.1 VDC as some games are a bit fussier.
Using a digital multimeter check the voltage from the switching power supply in the cabinet, which will be a medium sized metal box with multiple wires attached to it, and the two wires you need will be clearly marked '+5 VDC' and 'ground' or 'common' or 'negative'. If the voltage is incorrect there will be a small potentiometer or knob that can be turned to adjust the voltage. With the multimeter still connected adjust the voltage so the multimeter reads 5.1 VDC, or even better 5.2 as there will be a slight voltage drop between the power supply and the game board which will be approx 5.1 VDC by the time all the components on the board receive the power.
If you don't have a digital multimeter or are not too sure about the wiring at the power supply, you can go into the boot game into the test settings menu which will display the current voltage the board is receiving on the screen. You can then make the adjustments as necessary. Refer to the manual for details on how to boot into the test screen.
Hope this helps.

Not sure of the generation of Golden Tee, but I recall the opto encoder on the trac ball causing this same problem. That being memory of years and years ago when I was a tech for a national distributor.
