This is mentioned in the source file:
- test mode doesn't work correctly, the grid is ok but when you press a key to go to the
  next screen (input test) it stays up a second and then drops back into the game

Please check the source code always before you post a report.

It shouldn't go as far as the colour display on the grid, the PCB behaves like this:

plain grid -> grid + colours -> input test

to leave test mode press A+B or C+D+E+F+G, possibly other combinations. Game goes into play whether test mode dip is still on or off.

Suspect the problem is some kind of input (service mode maybe?) which is being held, and as such other keys are seen as a combination to exit again. I can kind of replicate the problem by holding B down on the PCB and trying to use A for next screen.

Would you like me to push a code commit with this extra information so it can be ignored there rather than tracked here?
