Anyone got any ideas about this?
I assume you are dealing with old CRT monitors and the two old arcade machines are also CRT monitors.
Because it's impossible to warp the images on an LCD/LED monitor even under strong electromagnetic pulses.
Ironically, CRT monitors, can be notoriously sensitive to electric field disturbances (which can easily be caused by any person under certain
situations at close proximity). The old/misused/abused ones are especially quite sensitive and will sometimes shut itself down just by being close to
What's more. A CRT monitor shutting down is capable of generating a powerful electromagnetic pulse. You can literally feel it even farther away in
very dry weather and it can disrupt other CRT monitors and shutdown equipment.
You could have a built up of electrostatic field that day or you are electrically grounded.
And old abused/misused computers with loose motherboard wiring are also notorious for random malfunctions and especially sensitive to any kind of
motion or vibration or being tapped.
It can be difficult to tell if it's paranormal if you're dealing with CRT monitors and public computers because most cases have plain and simple

Having an absolutely positive attitude helps to improve reliability of machines around you. Despite my best efforts at repairing my own stuff, I
realize we have an almost mystical connection to things around us. Fear, nervousness, frustration, worries, anger can also affect our machines badly
even if we don't thrash them.
