So I have a Bally Lady Luck 86 http://pinside.com/pinball/archive/lady-luck ,had problems with a FU1 fuse blowing then found out it needs a 6 amp fuse with 3 flippers games even if it's written 5 amp on the board... so I replaced it with 6 amp and it seems ok, then I realised the 1 amp slow blow fuse under the playfield was blown, replaced it and most of the solenoid still don't work...

Both slingshots don't work, the 3 bumpers don't work either and when all flippers are activated the left one doesn't work (still works when the right flippers are not activated), the outhole switch seems fine since it detect the ball but the ball doesn't get in play (solenoid again)... the switch for everything mentionned above seems fine since they make sound when activated and everything else seems fine (target, etc.) ... any idee? I tested all solenoid for resistance and they seems ok so I'm confused

up! still trying to figure why most of the coils arn't working!

Ground transistor tabs that fire them. If the coils fire then what fires them is borked - if they don't fire then from the transistor legs out you have a break.

All the solenoids are supplied through the 6A fuse. First, the three flippers are powered, then through the 1A playfield fuse for the rest of the solenoids. Check voltage starting at the flippers, then at the fuse holder. I would suspect a broken wire between the left and right flippers. Possibly a short which would explain why all the fuses were blown.

Do you have the manual?

If not, here's a link to it on ipdb.org.
