It was working fine when I bought it then played fine here at home for a couple games until it stopped scoring or doing anything so I unplugged and replugged the power to try to reset it but now only the backglass is lit up with TILT lit up.

The game stopped scoring and responding after a special feature lit up in the yellow rectangle on the backglass when the ball landed in the hole at top of playfield with the 4 lit up then another ball landed in the matching 4 hole in middle of the playfield.

The three fuses showed continuity with the multimeter tester. Could it be one of the stepper units? One of the tilt switches?

I have the schematic copy from PB Resource and I can post scans of it here or photos of the parts of the game you want to see. The scoring motor is apparently underneath the playfield and I see 10,000 and 100,000 steppers plus replay and point steppers in the backbox.

Thanks,
Bruce

Start by checking the tilt switches. Your schematic should show if they are normally open or normally closed. You may have a tilt relay, make sure it is working properly too.
