Ok so...i've never done anything to a pin machine before now so...

First thing i've done on my Attack from bruno Mars is to change the
lamps to leds. Some were not working anyhow - but - and i think i was
careful - now a whole bank aren't lighting at all.

Tracked it down to one complete lighting circuit on the main inserts.
Coming from pin 2 i think off the plug - but i haven't got any idea
where the fault is. The wiring seems tight.

A few lamps on the same circuit weren't working before (well they
were, then they weren't).

Any help here is massively appreciated.

Also - the lamp in the center of the bumpers has never lighted
and still doesn't. Is this a seperate wiring? (Not as important).

Aside from that - the LEDs look amazing everywhere else
and i'm glad i did it - i was apprehensive because i didn't want
to lose the classic look of the machine - but - i think it's better now.

Thanks wayout - unbelievably fast response.

When I'm sober....perhaps tomorrow....i'll try all that.

Thanks wayout, i appreciate your help.
And i flippin' love attack.

so... i returned to my AFM (just to play) and the lamps (except the bumper one) were all working.

so i played a while and it looked great....and oddly seemed to play better (is this possible?,
the flippers seemed to have more power - i'll rebuild them anyway cos they are 95%)

and then i went away and came back and the same lamps were gone off again.

could this be a loose connection? seems strange when it changes while no one is around.
