You said you checked the fuse but did you check the fuse holder ? Check and see if the fuse itself slides from top to bottom or side to side ( depending which way the fuse holder is positioned). If it is moving then it may not be making good contact with the fuse holder itself. Is is scoring properly or is playfield dead? Have you checked the tilt switches?

I just checked my North Star just to make sure that there aren’t any switches on the score motor that might cause any issue and there doesn’t appear to be. Have you tried jumpering a wire from the head fuse to the playfield side of the playfield fuse holder with the playfield fuse removed. It should light the playfield. If it does then try from transformer side of the fuse holder ( with fuse out) and see if that works. If that does then your problem will be with the fuse holder or fuse. If nothing works then your next step is to try the wire at the jones plug. I think it is a mottled black/ white. Jumper to the pin on the jones plug. If still not working there has to be an open on the playfield on either the 6 volt side or the ground side
