1973 Williams Gulfstream. Woke up this morning and the three bumpers are no longer firing. Don't know it I should be looking for a fuse or a broken wire. Wish I had a full schematic.

First let me thank you for such a quick reply. This is a pretty active site, I guess.

Second, things just got WORSE.

So I never stated that the pop bumpers were the ONLY thing that stopped working. Everything else was fine.

But... I took out that fuse by the left flipper to test it (it's fine) and now the game wont start when I press the start button. Displayblights come on when I push the left flipper, but game wont start.

Hmmm

Doh! Sorry to be a newbie. The game would not start because it was tilted out, I guess. As soon as I dropped the table back down and put the ball back it, it came to life.

So I'm back to just the original problem with the pop bumpers not working at all. They dont score or pop.

dr_nybble,

Just checking. Was your last reply regarding testing the rectifier for just the pop bumpers or responding to my dumb post about the game not playing?

Update...

Looks like both the pop bumpers and the lower bumpers are not working. I will test that rectifier later on today. I thought when you said "kickers" you meant the two kick-out holes which are working fine. I need to learn the proper terminology for all this.
