Hi folks!
I’m looking for a bit of guidance.
I found a burnt board on the bottom of my Cyclone playfield.
There are two twisted pairs of wires I’m guessing are bypassing the board?
Can anyone tell me what it is and point me in the right direction of a repair?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for all the info!
Your cyclone looks way cleaner than mine.
This is my first pin so I’m new to all this.
I prob. Should have held out for one in a little bit better of shape (or at a better price) but I’m learning a ton and having fun with it.
I’m gonna pull out the manual and figure out how to run the tests and I’ll post the results.
I started giving it a good cleaning and that’s when I found the burnt relay .
One thing led to another and this happened...

Behold the ugliness .
All I wanna do is change the board and get it working but I fell like I should redo it all. Looks like it’s been through a flood .
You wouldn’t have a picture of the back relay wiring?
I think I did see one . I’ll do a search..
Thanks again !

It took me long enough but....
I have my .156 Molex connectors, crimp pins, and pins.
My buddy is coming over with his solder sucker, solder iron and krimper.
And he’s gonna show me my way around a multi meter.
With any luck.... I might have some GI light effects I haven’t had n my machine!
And my playfield is about 40% back together.
Can’t wait to post the progress.
I developed a new error
Adjust Switch 18 then C. DROP TARGET 18
Ugg
Gonna look for any loose wires, stuck switch, dirty
Hopefully an easy diagnosis and quick fix .
