My play field flashers and cloud flashers stopped working. The back box flashers still work.

There is no voltage at fuse F111. Fuse F111 never blew, and tests good for continuity, and I replaced it just to make sure.

I also swapped the power driver board into my World Cup soccer, and all the flashers work perfect on the WCS machine with the Addams family power driver board in it, which makes me think the power driver board is good.

Any one have any tips or ideas ?

When you swapped the driver board was there voltage at F111?

If not, you might be checking something wrong or maybe it is upstream. Here is a picture of the voltage coming from the transformer to the power driver board. Then it goes through F111 and the Bridge Rectifier that turns it into DC.

So you should have AC voltage and they use two pins for each side to reduce stressing 1 pin.

Follow the power.

Yes, when I switched the board into wcs I had approximately 12v at the fuse.

I misread the original post that you put the Addams into WCS. Sorry.

But where I put the red arrows, are you getting power to the board? You might have to (power off) check continuity from J102 pins (1or2) and (3or4) back to the transformer. Wire could have come off, broken splice... Transformer winding going bad is rare but not unthinkable.

I Got it. There was a bad connection in the big plug right after the transformer secondary. I reseated the big plug and it works.
