I've been working on a Hi-Deal and I've got it playing for the most part, but I'm still having issues with one of the reels sticking when resetting. While playing around with the reel something went wrong and now the playfield is dead (no lights when plugged in/turned on). I haven't been able to figure out what went wrong, so I swapped out all the fuses. After that I replaced all of the fuse holders, still nothing. Weird as it was working fine and now I can't get any power
I'm not sure how or why I did this, but while I had it plugged in trying to see what was going on, the coin door ended up getting swung open and upon doing so the game lit up. Once the door stopped swinging the lights went back out, but I've got it to the point where the game works depending on the position of the coin door. It's it's roughly 90 degree vs the front of the machine it works, otherwise no power. I've spent the last 3 days trying to figure out wtf is loose on the door but I can't figure it out. While the game is lit I use a screwdriver to move all the wires around (thinking loose/faulty wire) but nothing goes wrong. I play with the coin switches, it adds credits. I try jiggling the lights, nothing.... yet the second I move the door something becomes loose or changes and power goes out or starts to flicker. I know this must be something generic but I'm lost. It's acting exactly like a loose wire but I've run out of wires to move around at this point. Is there anything inside of the coin mechanisms that can be causing this?
